This lady is crazy, like actually nuts, but I bought into every main point she makes. My house and my life are in order and it feels JOYFUL. I am glad I read this and constantly am asking, does this spark joy?
Had some great tips and insights, but it could’ve been like a third of its length. Like a great article fluffed up too much.
I’m still a young man with a lot to learn and something has drawn to read book despite the fact that I haven’t read I’m almost 4 years. It has changed me and made me appreciate more of my thing, this “KonMari” method has changed the way I look at things everyday and pushes me to change my life.
Thank you Mrs. Mary Kondo

Listen, I’m not going to sit here and say this is for a typical person looking some quick tips. Now, that being said, anything in this book could be taken with a grain of salt and modified for someone looking for an extra push.
I am someone who is looking for a bigger push towards minimalism and this book had some really great suggestions. Like some other reviews, I also wish there was more focus on how to work with others if they aren’t quite on board with this view. This is lightly touched upon, but would be nice to be seen as a common theme in the book.
There are some views that may be more out there such as treating clothes or the home at personal, but hey, that is what was working for the author, and I definitely see the merit.
At points, I felt the book repeated over and over and over, which, I get. It is a book on tidying. It was a lot though.
Main take aways
-Declutter first, by category not by room
-Save personal items for last
-Go through items one at a time, saving only items that bring joy
-Only when things are decluttered completely, find a place for remaining items and know that then they shouldn’t need to find a new space
-Purchasing storage is not really a solution
All in all, I learned a lot and there were great ideas for cleaning and folding that I also look forward to putting into practice to make sure my home stays and enjoyable place to live!

Very inspirational book and a must read for those wanting to “eliminate the clutter and stream-line their life. It’s a very well-written book which provided me with the motivation to get started. I’ve let my possessions control me for way too long and now can’t wait to start letting go and conquering the massive mounds of clutter I thought I couldn’t live without. Thanks for making it seem so simple. I’m now ready to let go and make the changes I need to live my best life!

I can't help but feel like this book fell right into my lap exactly when I needed it most. I can't wait to wake up and put these practices into action tomorrow morning! Maria makes it very clear on how to best tackle such a big job of tidying, with practical tools anyone can implement to simplify their space, which in turn simplifies the mind and soul. Definitely a book I plan to recommend to friends!
