This #1Â New York Times best-selling guide to decluttering your home from Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes readers step-by-step through her revolutionary KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing, and storing.
Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?
Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, youâ€™ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondoâ€™s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list).Â
With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house â€œspark joyâ€ (and which donâ€™t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyoâ€™s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy homeâ€”and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.
