    1. How do I get into messes like this Reading books that have words like tidying in their title, I mean Well, there s a story behind it.The Good Wife and I are trying to purge, to clean up after decades of marriage, kids, three moves, etc We ve got to do something about all this stuff we keep bumping into or dusting, I keep saying, something than the penny ante efforts we re doing so far Enter a New York Times feature on THIS book, calling it the greatest thing since sliced sushi nytimes 2014 10 2 [...]


    2. There is no rating low enough to compensate for the way this book has ruined my life Whatever you do, don t read it as it will haunt you This is a long review but it behooves you to stick with it To begin, you have to touch each and every possession and ask yourself if it brings you joy If it doesn t, it needs to be discarded Do you know how hard it is to summon joy for beige underwear or Neosporin Yet summon you must I like my carrot peeler but is joy too strong a word It gets tougher Not only [...]



    3. Do you like talking to furniture Do you believe shirts have souls Are you insane This might be the book for you.


    4. You will never use spare buttons WORDS WE ALL NEED TO HEAR.I really thoroughly loved this book I ve always been interested in minimalism trying to stop material goods being the things that bring us happiness, and not owning than we need and picked this book up after hearing a few people around me enjoy it I was hoping it would give me a few tips on how to lead a clutter free existence, and while it accomplished that, it also did so much The thing that most stuck me about this book was the imm [...]


    5. The book is short and sweet, and the author is bat shit crazy But Here are two take aways that will stay with me If it does not spark joy, throw it out.And My basic principle for sorting papers is to throw them all away Believe me I have been throwing away and selling, and donating to Goodwill with a vengeance for the past few days, and tidying I refuse to fold my socks though Folding socks is for people with all the time in the world.


    6. Personally, I recommend hanging sponges outside, such as on the veranda Quite possibly the funniest line I have ever read in a book Because she is dead serious.Although there were several helpful sections about how to declutter and organize your home, much of this book is ridiculously funny This woman obviously has no children and no life as she speaks to all her inanimate objects daily, empties her purse EVERY SINGLE DAY, and doesn t own a dish rack, preferring instead to put all her dishes on [...]


    7. Though this book can be a little woo woo and a little repetitive, I have to give it five stars for the impact it has already had on my life I love collecting stuff and have a very hard time letting go The author s techniques allowed me to graciously and gratefully bid adieu to things I no longer love, and I felt amazing when I did both my clothing and book purges My sister asked if I was high I still have much to do, but I m trying to do one step a week HIGHLY recommended.


    8. This book just spoke to me, for whatever reason, although I can see why others might not get much out of it No matter what the subject is, I love reading books by people that are truly passionate about the subject matter, and one thing is for sure Marie Kondo is passionate about tidying Despite all of that, this book isn t really about tidying, at its core It s about living very intentionally and allowing your surroundings and possessions to become an expression of yourself If that last sentence [...]


    9. This review was delayed because I was busy tidying up Yesterday I finished this charming little book about the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing, and this morning I woke up filled with ENTHUSIASM and was ready to open up every drawer and every closet and to simplify, simplify, simplify Of course, such projects always take longer than you expect I was trying to follow the spirit of Marie Kondo s guidelines, which involve handling each one of your possessions and asking Does this spark j [...]


    10. I laughed out loud four times reading this book Otherwise, it s the ravings of a lunatic Funniest moments include the author bursting into tears when she discovers a smudge of bathroom slime on the bottom of her shampoo bottle and that she believes if you have 80 rolls of toilet paper in your house, you are a hoarder instead of a Coscto member This is a woman who has her entire bookshelf in her clothes closet if I walk into your house and you do not have 200 books laying around that you haven t [...]


    11. Be careful whose advice you buy but be patient with those who supply it Advice is a form of nostalgia Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for than it s worth Mary Schmich I m trying, Mary I really am Oh, screw it This was the most stressful book I ve ever read I haven t been thrown into such a fucking frenzy of hatred since The Book Thief, and as with The Book Thief, I m astounded that audiences en masse are [...]


    12. I so agree that it is life changing magic when everything has been tidied up But I don t need to read the book as I already have this magic Her name is Cynthia and she comes every other Thursday morning Admittedly she costs a bit than this book and wants a computer lesson during her time but she Fabuloso s my floors, the airing cupboard is stacked with neatly folded linens and once in a while we go at a place like my son s room that lacks magic and garbage bag everything This is a boring job al [...]


    13. Because I have such admiration for the Japanese aesthetic, I picked up this book with interest In fact, I was delighted to discover that my lifetime habits of tidying are roughly in line with Marie Kondo s, the expert s, except for a brilliant bit of advice relative to clothes that I can t wait to try Kondo s basic mantra is keep things that bring you joy discard everything else, and that is so cool that I m going to try it, because it goes further than what I had thought, but along the same lin [...]


    14. I think the word tidy or tidying was used in the book at least a 100 times, and that s being conservative Talk about some clutterAnyway, I definitely didn t enjoy this as much as I thought I would And I certainly didn t enjoy this as much as The Joy of Less Maybe it was the fact that I had read that book prior to this or the fact that I have been reading a lot of minimalist blogs and sites that already extrapolated the best parts of this book and the KonMari Methodbut I just found myself very un [...]


    15. Consejos tiles como el de organizar por categor as Para gente desordenada como yo, es genial Eso s , los comentarios machistas son como patadas en mi tero Si eres mujer, ponte algo femenino o elegante para dormir Lo peor que puedes hacer es usar unas mallas desgastadas Si las mallas son tu atuendo cotidiano, acabar s por ser como ellas, lo cual no resulta muy atractivo.Actualizaci n despu s de hacer todo lo que esta se ora dec a en pocos d as porque ella as lo recomienda mi piso entr en un efect [...]


    16. I give this one 2 stars because I took a few things from it that I think are great ideas to help me organize But about a third of the book was spent repeating itself and when it wasn t doing that was just weird to me I wondered at times if the book was satire or a memoir of OCD disguised as the middle child syndrome Some examples that had me wondering if this was satire or not include 1 She talked as though inanimate objects have feelings or as though they are alive so you have to say goodbye to [...]


    17. I have just experienced the life changing magic of discarding two thirds of my clothes, shoes, and accessories One category down, a whole house to go It s so fun to get dressed now all I have to do is reach in and anything I pull out sparks joy in my heart After going up three sizes and then back down again within the last 2 years, you d think I wouldn t have anything left to discard, but that wasn t true So many items were hiding the good stuff, dragging me down with bad memories, worn out asso [...]


    18. Terrible Ridiculous Repetitive.If you took the words, tidy, tided, and tidying, out of this book you would be left with a pamphlet I have this thing called misophonia and I made the crucial error of listening to this book on audio Repetitive stuff can really get under my skin and there were a few instances when listening to this book that I had to stop myself from throwing my phone out of my moving vehicle Say tidy one time Do it Crunch.This isn t the type of book I would normally pick up and I [...]


    19. I hesitated to read this book because I thought it might not have much to offer beyond what s written on its back cover get rid of any belongings that don t spark joy That is really the essence of Kondo s advice, but she has to offer in the rest of the book too, and it s surprisingly eccentric and Japanese No American book would advise praying to your house before tidying it, for example, or suggest that objects just want to help you and that, once released from your possession, they will conti [...]


    20. Notes as i read Things I like the idea of tidying by category the joy factor we should be choosing what we want to keep, not what we want to get rid of she s not very judgemental the sweet Japanese anthropomorphizing of objects her approach to clothes and thanking the objects for their service her order and suggestion that tidying needs to be done just once in a big swoop and in a certain order discard first, figure out where things go after like the idea of seeing what you need don t need as an [...]


    21. What will I take away from this life changing book on tidying up 1 If you name a method after yourself, you conjure up instant credibility as an expert 2 If you are a neurotic nutcase with an obsessive compulsive disorder, try to turn it into a virtue, or even better, a lucrative career.3 If you use the words spark joy , feel happiness and reduce anxiety enough times, people will want to follow your lead and pay you good money for your advice and on a practical level I ve learnt that 1 you can a [...]


    22. I know a secret If you have too much stuff and it s bugging you then get rid of it All of it Well, nearly all of it Save a few things but only the things you absolutely love, the things that spark joy within your being you ll know it when you feel it, says the author and don t bring things into the house unless you love and or need them Don t think you can do that Well, never mind then.This author wants you to be absolutely ruthless with your possessions and do it in one fell swoop Don t dilly [...]


    23. I ve read a lot of organization books over the years, but this is a book that might actually change your relationship with your possessions Instead of focusing on categories, fiddly buckets, or accessories from Bed Bath and Beyond, Marie Kondo asks us to reevaluate the way we relate to our homes and belongings The question, does this spark joy seems pat, but it truly liberates you to think critically why you keep something around By the end of the book, you ll understand that we keep things that [...]


    24. The Office Kat brought this book to my attention, and it became my plane read for a trip to Australia in November 2014 Doubtless the Kat had an ulterior motive the office is a stacked up mess but this book offers than tips on tidying.The author, Marie Kondo, has made tidying up her life since she was a small child, and shares many anecdotes about her early days as a stealth clutter control operative in her family home, as well as some of the false starts she had on her way to her tidying method [...]


    25. This book has actually changed my life I m now in the middle of category 4 out of 5 of her decluttering tidying process and honestly y all i have never felt so good Thanks KonMari


    26. I picked up this book because so many people talk about it, but I m not necessarily a hoarder or someone who has too many things that I need to tidy up This was only four hours long on audiobook so I flew through it in two sittings while cleaning my room, coincidentally And although I don t agree with Marie a ton about thinning down on your things ie for sentimental items, she s like throw them away it had value to you once and now it s gone like, no im keeping everything i ve touched until i di [...]


    27. Interesting if read as the autobiography of a tidy mongering obsessive Like all those Netflix documentaries, obsession is the key ingredient to greatness Jacks of all trades don t write books like these and don t have documentaries made about them As a practical guide, I sort of can t wait to return home from extended thanksgiving week in law exposure in the Midwest and implement these ideas My wife and I have agreed to compete to see who can discard and order of our stuff I ll win because I ha [...]


    28. This book had a magical effect on me alright, although not quite the magic the author had intended The issue I had with this book was that I did not enjoy reading it Every time I picked it up all I could think about was how I would much rather be tidying up than reading about tidying up, so I would put it down, making for a very lengthy read of a very short and repetitive book However, something sparked a change in me as a result of reading this book I have become obsessed with throwing things o [...]


    29. sure, marie kondo is a little bit crazy she talks to her home, her socks and other belongings, and seems seriously OCD about emptying out her entire purse every single day.BUT, for me, she still made a lot of sense if you re the type of person who feels like they are spending way too much time cleaning and organizing and de cluttering, this book may be for you.i folded all my socks, underwear and clothes and gained an entire dresser drawer AMAZING and i m slowly applying her thought process and [...]
