Spark Joy by Marie Kondo
Contrary to popular belief, tidying is a skill; a skill that can be learned.
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.
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.
The illustrations show Ms Kondo's unique folding method, clearly showing how to fold anything from shirts, trousers and jackets to skirts, socks and bras with simple line drawings explaining how to properly organise drawers, wardrobes, cupboards and cabinets.
Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, presented her unique tidying philosophy and introduced readers to the basics of her KonMari method. It has already transformed the homes and lives of millions of people around the world.
Now Spark Joy is Marie Kondo's in-depth tidying masterclass, focusing on the detail of how to declutter and organise your home and take you from the basics of a tidy life to a new way of living mess – and stress – free.
‘The aim should not be to wake up in a flat of echoes, to a kitchen with a single plate. It should be to enjoy the objects you’ve chosen to live with, and to continue to choose only things you’ll love. Holding each one in my hand, as Kondo urges, and realising how many of them do “spark joy” was a pleasure, a reminder of who I am.’ – The Guardian
Our favourite quote: 'Now imagine yourself living in a space that contains only things that spark joy. Isn’t this the lifestyle you dream of?'
