Book Description

This #1 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.

This edition is a perfect outline for people who want to simplify their homes and lives. It provides a clear and persuasive account of lifestyle changes for greater empowerment.
The book may not be appealing to people who are sentimental and want to hold onto junk in their homes.
This is a book is for every homeowner who wants to have an enjoyable living space. The Author, Sydney Song, an expert in interior designs takes a comprehensive look at decluttering which has proved to be a difficult task for many. She takes a Japanese approach to decluttering and encourages people to make their homes and lives simpler. The author brings this out by using a persuasive approach, and highlighting all the benefits that come with decluttering. The process of decluttering is simplified and made fun in the book. The content engages the reader by putting forward recommendations that require immediate implementation. Song wisely avoids delving into complex philosophies of the process and focuses directly on what needs to be done. Even for those who are very sentimental, the recommendations are easy to apply even on a small scale to test the outcome. By further demystifying how to deal with emotional clutter, Song makes the process of decluttering a complete lifestyle change as opposed to a house rearrangement exercise. Telling the reader to take a picture because it lasts longer, the author makes the book a daily companion for homeowners who want complete change of lifestyle and empowerment.
