Better than the first book and feels much less judgey. ( )

This breaks down more areas/categories than the first book (or at least goes a bit deeper), and I find it funny that really she apparently wrote it because everyone needed illustrations for how she folds all her clothes. There are some interesting takeaways here and there, although I wouldn't say it's necessarily essential reading. ( )

Love this method!

I've read so many review and hate on these books but I've got to say most of it is attacking the tidbits and not seeing the larger picture of what she is trying to tell us. I don't thank my stuff but I understand her thought behind appreciating every thing you own. Having only the items that bring you joy will make you happier. Obviously there are necessity items in life but clearing out the clutter will make those non joy items more manageable I feel. I also feel this is a great method for kids, so many kids have too much stuff, and its overwhelming to control. Less stuff has been proven to help with mood in children. I would recommend both of these books to everyone. Read past what makes you giggle and take in her larger meaning. ( )

This was just a rehash of the first book ( )

After watching her series on Netflix and reading her "Life changing Magic of Tidying Up," I knew I needed more! Marie is an tidying expert who takes you on a life alternating festival of tidying. This book has more diagrams and visuals to help one on that path.

Some quotes: "In Japan there is a saying that 'beauty is not built in a day.'"

Example of her humor: "Putting school memories in order: If you can't bring yourself to get rid of your school uniform, why don't you try wearing it and lose yourself in memories of your youth? Most of my clients who do this come to their senses and discard it." Cracked me up!

On getting others in house to get it together too: "Naturally, the kind of living space that brings a person joy depends on that particular individual's values. We can't change others. And we should never force someone else to tidy. Only when we accept unconditioanlly people whose values differ from our own can we really say that we have finished tidying."

And the take away from the KonMari method of tidying: it isn't about what to discard, but rather what to keep; then we will be surrounded by things we love and give us joy going forward into our lives. ( )

....Once you’re living joyously with all your possessions joyously stored away joyously, you are free to move on to the most advanced joyous level of joyous tidying. See that lump sitting in the armchair watching the football when you want to watch Making a Murderer? Ask yourself this: which gives me more joy? The lump or the empty chair? So ditch him.
