Transform your home into a permanently clear and clutter-free space with the incredible KonMari Method.

Japan's expert declutterer and professional cleaner Marie Kondo will help you tidy your rooms once and for all with her inspirational step-by-step method.

The key to successful tidying is to tackle your home in the correct order, to keep only the things you really love and to do it all at once - and quickly.

After that for the rest of your life you only need to choose what to keep and what to discard.

The KonMari Method will not just transform your space.

Once you have your house in order you will find that your whole life will change.

You can feel more confident, you can become more successful, and you can have the energy and motivation to create the life you want.

You will also have the courage to move on from the negative aspects of your life: you can recognise and finish a bad relationship; you can stop feeling anxious; you can finally lose weight. Marie Kondo's method is based on a 'once-cleaned, never-messy-again' approach.

If you think that such a thing is impossible then you should definitely read this compelling book.

If only for the idea that you shouldn't keep anything that does not "spark Joy" this gets the stars. She's a bit obsessive about throwing things away though and it didn't really speak to me. She is very unsentimental and while I get what she's saying, and I do intend to apply some of the ideas, I'm also going to donate as much as practical of what I dump. Interesting food for thought. I won't be applying it all at once tho, I would be overwhelmed and get nowhere with it and dispirited before I got too far into it.

I really liked this book. It's a quick read, and I'm re-reading it right away to make notes and a focused action plan for me. It made me snicker in lots of places, which I didn't expect, and the spiritual approach was nicely undercut by a pragmatic explanation alongside, so you could pick & choose which element you wanted to take away with you. I'm hopeful it will make a big difference in my environment as being a good, structured, straightforward methodology.
