Spark Joy by Marie Kondo - Review

I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: January 5, 2016
Number of pages: 304
Genre: Self-Help

Japanese decluttering guru Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up has revolutionized homes—and lives—across the world. Now, Kondo presents an illustrated guide to her acclaimed KonMari Method, with step-by-step folding illustrations for everything from shirts to socks, plus drawings of perfectly organized drawers and closets. She also provides advice on frequently asked questions, such as whether to keep “necessary” items that may not bring you joy. With guidance on specific categories including kitchen tools, cleaning supplies, hobby goods, and digital photos, this comprehensive companion is sure to spark joy in anyone who wants to simplify their life.

What did I think of this book:
This is the second book by this author that I have read and I have enjoyed both of the. If you read them with an open mind I feel that you will find what she has to say to be helpful and makes sense. Also if you have not read her first book about tidying up I would suggest reading it first as this is a great companion/follow up book to that. I thought this was a very interesting book with some good ideas. I am looking forward to going through my things and deciding what to keep that sparks joy and what I do not need to keep anymore. I also liked how there were illustrations to go along with some things, like how to fold things. I thought that was helpful. I definately recommend this book if you are wanting to declutter your life.
