This New York Times best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.
Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?
Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).
With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Decluttering guru Marie Kondo has become such a superstar that when she gives talks in her home country of Japan, there’s a waiting list for the waiting list. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is about much more than making your home neat; it’s about resetting your entire life. Some of Kondo’s methods are startling (thank your possessions before you get rid of them), but much of her advice is imminently practical. Her notion that you should only keep things that give you joy makes this compact book a little life-changer.
