Consultant Marie Kondo’s first book, the New York Times bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, created a worldwide, cult-like following of “Konverts.” Kondo’s “KonMari” method of tidying is a spiritual more than a practical quest. In this sequel, the decluttering guru provides a detailed, illustrated guide to help you navigate every step of your tidying journey. Once you complete her process, Kondo promises, you’ll like yourself more, acquire a deeper appreciation for your possessions, attain inner peace and even put your love life in order. The attraction of unburdening yourself of excess – and curating a home that’s a sanctuary filled with things you love – is easy to understand. However, this all-or-nothing approach is not for the faint of heart; it requires a major commitment. Kondo assures followers that once you complete it, the transformation is permanent: She boasts of a “zero rebound rate.” Perhaps having too much stuff is a rich-people problem, but decades of unrestrained consumerism affect people of every income. getAbstract recommends this charming tidying-up guide to people seeking order in their lives and tranquility in their homes.
