    Although I may not (read: will not) fold all my underwear into origami, her principles of tidying up are well worth looking at. What is important to you? (Seems weird to say "spark joy" when referring to underwear.) I'm all about shedding stuff that is no longer useful in my life hence...

    Spark Joy or Kill Joy? According to Marie Kondo.... her KonMari Method of tidying up is nothing short of life-changing. Every time I walked into any book store... This little book ( kinda attractive), seems to always be near the front of the store...with many copies. I've yet...

    Dear Marie Kondo, It is with great trepidation that I write this review of your newest book. I was berated by people all over the world after my critical Goodreads review of your first book, The Magical Art of Tidying. I received over 1800 likes and comments. Your rabid fans called m...

    This is a fine follow-up to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I listened to the audio version, and found the accompanying PDF helpful enough that I didn't need the printed text. Don't let Kondo's animism put you off; even if you're uncomfortable with thanking your possessions for...

    Okay, so this second KonMarie book is even crazier than the first, and Kondo herself is a self-professed obsessive-compulsive who talks to underwear and thanks papers. Still, she is very good at motivating you to get off the couch and put some order in your house, and has a strong poin...

    I read this book thinking, "well of course this is how to tidy up! Makes total sense." The language may have been idiosyncratic at times ("spark joy" being especially prevalent), but none of the principals were a huge shock or revelation. ...

    I got this book instead of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing because it has invaluable illustrations of Marie Kondo's folding style. (I started looking like one of these dogs when reading the descriptions of how to fold without any p...

    If you are really serious about decluttering your life this book will give you the guidance you need. It should be something you've already thought about. It's not a book for people who love to be surrounded by a lot of stuff. Those people will just end up writing long reviews making f...

    Initial reaction: I thought this was a thorough follow up to Marie Kondo's first book, with more expansions and cute illustrations to boot. This book has a slight edge for my enjoyment because of how streamlined and organized it is compared to the first book. Probably rating this about...

    The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing felt a bit weird. it's successor, Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up felt more comfortable, whether because I was adapted to Ms. Kond?'s perspective, or t...

    Before this book changed my life, my makeup products sat dangerously close to my skin care products blocking my vanity's now perfect energy. Also, as is typical for people with my blood type, I'd never considered the relief that comes with organizing my electronics by smell, or having ...

    Bloody hell. I'm not sure when they released smack into the water supply, but this book confirms that we have lost it, as a civilization. Three examples will confirm my statement. Clothes organization. ?Start with tops because things worn closer to your heart make it easier to ...

    I've been reading through this book slowly. I've spent more time slowly taking it's advice than actually reading it now that I'm technically finished. I'll spare everyone here the details, but before I read this book my apartment looked a lot different. And though it took me some time ...

    Better then her previous book because she finally had some diagrams. Most of her advice was the same, so I pretty much skimmed through it. ...

    Ok, I?ve read Marie?s books one after each other... I?d definitely recommend reading the previous book of hers first. I actually prefer this book as Marie seems to have relaxed a bit in how she gets information over to the reader, and she tells us a lot more anecdotal stories, th...

    3.5 stars. I tend to reserve 4/5 star ratings for books very beautifully written; but whilst the simplicity and minimalism of her writing didn?t warrant a higher rating, her content was insightful and well broken down. It?s a very simple read (that being said, I listened to the aud...

    Honestly, I thought this book was weird. Like this author is just way too obsessed with tidiness. I consider myself pretty tidy but I'm never gonna close my eyes and hug a piece of clothing to my chest to decide whether "inspires joy." Eventually I was motivated to tidy my home though,...

    I found this book cluttered with boring and unhelpful anecdotes and also lacking in practical tips on how to actually tidy ones house. There's no real structure of how to go about it and there are a lot of gaps. For example, nowhere does the author mention coats, decorative items or ar...

    Spark Joy is author Marie Kond?'s follow up to her internationally best-selling title, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Kondo's not for everyone ? some of her ideas are very different like treating your possessions as if they...

    Very unique way to organize items, minimalist and get rid of clutter easily. If you can't declutter after this book there might not be hope. ...

    Slow start, I almost felt like I was rereading "Life Changing Magic." Halfway through, Marie got to some tips about kitchens and bathrooms that was really lacking in the first book. I really enjoyed it! Love her. ...

    Everything you REALLY need to know about Marie Kondo's tidying method you can find in her first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. From there, you can pretty much figure out the rest yourself, but if you need a bit of reinforcement and would like more specific tips (not to me...

    This was 100% what I expected and needed out of a "master class." I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up right around a year ago, and completed the entire KonMari process in the following months. However, although we'd pared down our possessions to only the things we love and use...

    The companion book to the KonMari method, with even more details about how to do all the things. This tiny little book is meant to be read after, or in conjunction with, Kondo's bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Taken on its own/out of sequence, you can consider it t...

    I really liked this sequel to THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP! However, I felt like it was more of a modification of the first book than adding something new to Kondo's ideas. A lot of the same concepts are recycled in this novel - keeping items if it "sparks joy", learning to ti...

    I really enjoyed konmari's first book! I found it helpful, fresh, and it really did help me tidy up (pretty magically I might add) Since that book was released, I've read articles online about the method as it spread, and when I saw this book was due- I was thrilled! I was disappoin...

    For a while, I didn't really know if I wanted to read about KonMari or not, but luckily I decided to choose this, largely due to Emily's review down here at the reviews (which says this is a expansion to her previous book, with some things explained a bit clearer, and there are illustr...
