The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing Reviews

    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...

    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...

    This book did not spark joy. Therefore, I am discarding it. ...

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

    "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 more than we need - and picked this book up after he...

    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, ...

    "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 ri...

    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...

    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 tidy...

    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, sim...

    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 pape...

    "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 more than it's worth." --Mary Schmich. I'm tryin...

    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 clutter... Anyway, 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 w...

    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...it was just weird to me. I wondered at times if the book was satire or a memoir of OCD ...

    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 a...

    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 si...

    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 more to offer in the rest of the book too, and it's surpr...

    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...

    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...

    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 l...

    Marie Kond??s approach to de-cluttering is worth considering, but also challenging, seeing that it involves human beings treating objects with kindness and respect. That is perhaps only possible for people who have achieved or strive to achieve self-actualization. ...

    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 more than tips on tidying. The author, Marie Kondo, has made tidyin...

    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 pape...

    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" more than this book and wants a computer lesson...

    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 clutter... Anyway, 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 w...

    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...it was just weird to me. I wondered at times if the book was satire or a memoir of OCD ...

    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 a...

    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 more to offer in the rest of the book too, and it's surpr...

    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 l...

    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 althoug...

    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...

    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 tidy...

    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 pape...

    "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 more than it's worth." --Mary Schmich. I'm tryin...

    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" more than this book and wants a computer lesson...

    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 ...

    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 clutter... Anyway, 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 w...

    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...it was just weird to me. I wondered at times if the book was satire or a memoir of OCD ...

    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 a...

    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 si...

    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 more to offer in the rest of the book too, and it's surpr...

    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...

    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...

    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 l...

    Marie Kond??s approach to de-cluttering is worth considering, but also challenging, seeing that it involves human beings treating objects with kindness and respect. That is perhaps only possible for people who have achieved or strive to achieve self-actualization. ...

    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 more than tips on tidying. The author, Marie Kondo, has made tidyin...

    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 t...

    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! ...
