Book Review- Spark Joy by Marie Kondo

Book Description (Amazon)

Spark Joy is an in-depth, line illustrated, room-by-room guide to decluttering and organising your home, from bedrooms and kitchens to bathrooms and living rooms as well as a wide range of items in different categories, including clothes, photographs, paperwork, books, cutlery, cosmetics, shoes, bags, wallets and valuables. Charming line drawings explain how to properly organise drawers, wardrobes, cupboards and cabinets. The illustrations also show Ms Kondo’s unique folding method, clearly showing how to fold anything from shirts, trousers and jackets to skirts, socks and bras.

The secret to Marie Kondo’s unique and simple KonMari tidying method is to focus on what you want to keep, not what you want to get rid of. Ask yourself if something ‘sparks joy’ and suddenly it becomes so much easier to understand if you really need it in your home and your life. When you surround yourself with things you love you will find that your whole life begins to change. 

Marie Kondo’s first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, presents her unique tidying philosophy and introduces readers to the basics of her KonMari method. It has already transformed the homes and lives of millions of people around the world. Spark Joy is Marie Kondo’s in-depth tidying masterclass, focusing on the detail of how to declutter and organise your home.

Book Review

Having watched all episodes on Netflix I instantly brought this book – and many new tips I found hidden inside!! Plus it was a good reminder of the other things from the show.

I love how easy this book was to read. I enjoyed how she puts her past experiences in and her previous client history. The images are clear for folding (have tried but unfortunately cannot keep up with this one)

She was the starting point for my decluttering and making my home better. This book taught me to surround myself with possessions that bring me joy and happiness and I’m finally starting to see the effort! Marie teaches you many practical strategies that work (for me at least).

I downsized my clothes and books due to Spark Joy and will continue (am onto photos at the moment)

If it doesn’t bring you joy then get rid of it!! Simple and effective 🙂 Thank the items you don’t want to give it life to someone else. A must have for any tidying fans or want somewhere to start on the decluttering journey.
