Marie Kondo’s unique KonMari Method of tidying up is nothing short of life-changing—and her first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, has become a worldwide sensation. In Spark Joy, Kondo presents an in-depth, illustrated manual on how to declutter and organize specific items throughout the house, from kitchen and bathroom items to work-related papers and hobby collections. User-friendly line drawings illustrate Kondo’s patented folding method as it applies to shirts, pants, socks, and jackets, as well as images of properly organized drawers, closets, and cabinets. This book is perfect for anyone who wants a home—and life—that sparks joy
My thoughts: With a new year recently starting, I think that this is the perfect time for this book to come out and inspire people to get control of the clutter and organize personal space so that you can have a home that bring joy. While I don't agree with all of her thoughts (such as thanking items that you have used), I do think that the KonMari method is a great way to maximize space and get rid of useless items that are just cluttering the home up. I think this book is even better than the first (though I think it could be used in place of the first), since there Marie includes pictures to show some of her methods.
Whether you are looking to totally overall and change the way you live, or wanting to take a few ideas and start implementing a few changes, I think this book is a great resource.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
