The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

The need for a reset, not just in my home but in my life as well, prompted me to pick up this book for yet another read. The KonMari Method boils down to deciding the things in your home that you really love, the things that “spark joy,” and respectfully discarding the rest. (The exception to this statement are the things we need for our jobs, our health, etc.) When we rid our homes of all the excess, we realize how much we truly need in order to live a happy life. When we let go of things we have needlessly held on to, we are able to process our past in a healthy way and live for the here and now. This can also help empower us to go after the future we want for ourselves. And by giving your house a detox, you give your life one as well.

This book is the book for you if you are looking to get down to the basics of your life, and free yourself of anything that might be holding you back. It’s the perfect read for a weekend afternoon, but make sure you leave yourself time to jump off the couch and begin setting your home in order, because that is exactly what you will want to do!

  1. This was a great book! Pretty sure that just about everyone would be benefited by reading it. It helped us a lot, but like you, we’re probably due for another reading and another application of her methods.
    Did you read “Spark Joy”? My wife read some of it, and it clarifies some of the things she teaches in the first book.
    Excellent review! 🙂
