The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – Marie Kondo – Review

tidyingMarie Kondo is a consultant who helps her clients learn how to tidy up their homes in such a way that she promises they will never have to do it again. She explains in the book how it becomes a way of life, so once you’ve tidied up once you should never rebound.

I believe that the author has a good method for tidying up your home. I definitely plan to use some of her techniques to help me get rid of things and organize things in my house. The only thing I didn’t like about the book is how she tries to make you believe that your “things” have feelings. For example, she tries to explain how when deciding to get rid of something such as a shirt or a book you should ask yourself if it brings you joy. Now if she stopped there I would understand. Why keep things if you don’t really care for them anymore, but she doesn’t she then goes on to say that if you get rid of it you should thank it for its service to you. Other than that it was a very interesting read and I learned quite a few tips that will help me as I attempt to organize my home.

**I received this book from Blogging for Books for review.
