The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo
I had piles of papers, disorganized closets (that I thought were organized) and unordered drawers. But not anymore. I suggested this book for my book club because I wanted to be more organized in my home. It worked. I can now see every item in every drawer, no more ruffling through to find that special shirt or pair of shorts. My closets are beautifully arranged,I can see what I have and find everything in my cabinets. This book truly is a game changer. The systems are easy to maintain and simply make life easier. Don't wait. Read it now. Declutter your home or workspace and immediately feel lighter.
This is my all-time favorite book! I have always been someone who loves to organize but this book really changed my apartment and my life. I have used the methods in this book in my own closet and managed to keep it organized for several years. I have also used the methods to help friends organize their closets to great success. Only keeping items that spark joy will completely transform your space!
I swear by the KonMari Method as it changed my approach to organizing. I did not realize how much emotion I attached to my belongings and possessions, as well as did not realize how my belongings and possessions had a, sometimes negative, effect on my life. The methods in this book gave me the tools to feel comfortable sorting and editing my things, and empowered me, through being mindful of my thoughts and feelings toward these items, of how to keep them or let them go. I continue to use these tools throughout my everyday life and gain great perspective and positivity by doing so!
The KonMari method took the world by storm, but this gave me something much more than a tidy home. It gave me the idea that the things we buy need to have meaning. If you're buying things that don't truly add hope and meaning to your life, you shouldn't. I have been thinking so much more positivity and long-term focused, and it's changed how we live our lives and decorate our house!
