Here we go...
We need to put an end to this cruelty! 🙀
I can't tell if Marie Kondo is joking or being serious.
Still, this is pretty funny.
This is like an in-depth guide to the Marie Kondo method of tidying up with illustrations on how to fold. Great suggestions. Don't know if I'm ever going to put them to work.
Love the size of this book. I might even say it sparks joy...
This is the second book, and they should be read in order. This book makes a lot of clarifications on the first book, including folding illustrations and a few more tips. Both books are excellent.
I got this on a whim but wound up really enjoying it! I find this calm and methodical writing very soothing when my anxiety is putting me on edge a little. Listening to this while I sorted my laundry made me feel very at peace, which is probably just the desired effect! I live in a small single room rn, but have plans to move out this year and I‘m already working on my daydreams and plans for how to make my first flat a wonderful place to live.
”The energy of book titles and the words inside them are very powerful. In Japan, we say that ‘words make our reality.‘ The words we see and with which we come into contact tend to bring about events of the same nature. In that sense, you will become the person who matches the books you have kept.” Came across this advice while waiting for my new bookshelves at the Container Store. Never thought about this, but there might be some truth to it. 🤔
Just as good as the first book! Really loving these Marie Kondo books and I genuinely recommend them to anyone who wants a tidy space. I keep bringing up KonMari irl like a complete weirdo and I don't even care. I really liked the illustrations in this one, which helped me to actually understand what she meant in descriptions of folding.
3.5/5⭐ This book includes some great tips, and I loved the little illustrations. Kondo's anecdotes really make her strategies shine. I did think it was slightly repetitive, both internally and with her first book.
When the Netflix show was released it set off a lot of heated discussion of Marie Kondo‘s method of tidying up - and it seems to have been misconstrued. By that I mean she doesn‘t say to get rid of all of your books, or to even keep 30 (that‘s what SHE finds to be the best for HER). The worst offenders of nastiness appear to have been readers and I‘m disappointed in how we chose to behave. Also, now I have to read the books to get the real story.
I've recently surprised myself by getting hooked on Marie Kondo's Netflix series. My husband documented the situation last week on Instagram and I just had to share 😆😉
“Spark Joy” sparks joy!! (Currently reading)
Well I guess I could go the Marie Kondo route and purge some of my cookbooks. These 4 I don‘t think I‘ve even opened in probably 10 years. 🤔
Went clothes "shopping" at my aunt-in-law's yesterday. She is clearing out her closets and gave me a box of clothes to take away. I was able to keep between 85 and 90% of it -- a few things were too big or not really my style. Now to do a bit of #AudioIroning!
I had to laugh...#Ihaveakooziedrawer
I have been hearing alot about #mariekondo lately. Last weekend I decided to check out her show. I watched a few episodes. Pretty entertaining. I don‘t see how she wants to limit the amount of books though. Just the act of seeing a full bookshelf sparks joy in me 😄
The comment section is wild!
Say what now?!
I‘ve been watching the Marie Kondo show on Netflix (& the interesting response to her methods showing up online) and although I‘m with you all on her strange approach to books - it does makes complexing viewing. This is one of the books on my shelves that ‘sparks joy‘!
Success depends 90 percent on your mind-set. I know that no matter how much knowledge you may gather, if you don‘t change your way of thinking, you‘ll rebound.
Totally jumped on the “Tidying Up” bandwagon on Netflix and it actually inspired me to clean out my closet! Wondering if either of these books will give me the motivation to move on to the rest of the house?
l love this book
Probably only reading this because I read the first one, but maybe I feel like I need to organize my stuff better too.
Summer book clean up. When my glass case is over flowing looks like a permanent 🌪, when there are piles of books on the floor next to the really nice decorative boxes instead of in them : it's time to weed the overflow and make a deposit to the free little library. Also I finally put up the Paris Opera sign I found last May in a garage sale. #weedingisfun
When its hot as hell outside, but am trying to channel some autumn feels here 🍂🍁🎃 Am really loving my bookmark...I feel like getting more of em 😅
Am reading Kondo Marie's Spark Joy to help me with some organization issues as I pack up my apartment 😆
#bookandcoffee #decluttering #autumn
A good follow up.
Starting a new audiobook for my commutes 🌈✨
Thanks to Ai Jou for gifting me this inspiring book! I'm loving it! With the detailed illustration, I can better understand the KonMari Method and proceed with care of the festival itself ❤️
I was ridiculously excited to execute Phase Two of my Tidying Festival: books! Back in the day I kept everything I wanted to reread, but for the last few years I've kept only books that're important to me. This gave me a chance to go through my whole library with that criteria in mind.
There're some surprises in the discards pile, but I feel good about passing these along & borrowing them from the library when I want to reread.
My closet is much neater after Phase One of my Tidying Festival, but I'll need to up the visual interest. The back wall looks sooooo bare with my record player shifted into the corner & one floating bookshelf taken down.
Still, I'm happy it's now full of clothes I love (even if my jackets ARE pretty bland grouped together there). Thanks, Marie Kondo!
The clothes phase of my Tidying Festival got pretty frickin messy.
I plotted my upcoming Tidying Festival on some French Kitty postcards I hole punched so they'll fit into my Happy Planner. I wrote little mission statements for each phase and made checklists according to the system Kondo presents in her book, modified to fit my own stuff. Now I'm terribly pleased with myself.
I finished SPARK JOY early this morning and I'm now energized to do some serious tidying and joy-sparking! The book covers much of the same territory as Kondo's first, but from a more hands-on angle and with some inclusive refinements to her technique. It's a pleasure to read.
It also inspired me to bring my plush Dragon of Wales out into the open so I can enjoy him every day!
I have a reading buddy! Hannah was supposed to stay with my cousin while her people are away, but she took against his housemate's dog so now she's here--and she definitely sparks joy.
