Transform your home into a permanently clear and clutter-free space with the incredible KonMari Method. Japan's expert declutterer and professional cleaner Marie Kondo will help you tidy your rooms once and for all with her inspirational step-by-step method.
The key to successful tidying is to tackle your home in the correct order, to keep only the things you really love and to do it all at once - and quickly. After that for the rest of your life you need only to choose what to keep and what to discard.
The KonMari Method will not just transform your space. Once you have your house in order, you will find that your whole life will change. You can feel more confident, you can become more successful, and you can have the energy and motivation to create the life you want. You will also have the courage to move on from the negative aspects of your life: you can recognise and finish a bad relationship; you can stop feeling anxious; you can finally lose weight.
Marie Kondo's method is based on a 'once cleaned, never messy again' approach. If you think that such a thing is impossible, then you should definitely listen to this compelling audiobook.

Easily applicable tips to live more mindfully and happily. Very recommended book for all ages.
" Felt like a self-assertive autobiography "
I was looking forward to the hyped "domestic wisdom" of the book. I was however, disappointed after the first chapter. While the book starts you off with a very motivational chapter, it gets very repetitive and pushy right after that. I had to power through to finish the book infact because the material was beginning to sound so stretched out and unnecessarily lengthened. The narrator did an amazing job in every aspect, but the material *of* the book was intolerable due to the amount of boasting and self-assertion that was overbearingly repeated over and over again. All in all, I walked away with just two benefits: motivation to complete a decluttering process I had already started and a new way to fold and arrange clothes in drawers which I find to be aesthetically pleasing. If you wish to take tips and pointers, I would recommend one of the summaries available on Audible or hopping onto youtube for a quick search on decluttering the Marie Kondo way. You will get everything you need to know from either minus the boring stories, insufferable reptitiveness, and bragging.
Don't hesitate to buy this book. I feel so much lighter after putting my life in order. Definitely one of the most important books I've read to date. There is also an app that helps take you through the entire process. Good luck!
I don't know why but I always comeback to this audio book whenever I have to tidy my house and it just seems like my life falls into order afterwards too.
"read it at last!"
Bought the book weeks ago but it took me getting it on Audible to get me started. Finished it in two days and have since filled my car with old clothes and books - home already looks and feels better - looking forward to carrying on decluttering tomorrow.
How wonderful to now have Marie Kondo on audible. It enables a refresh for my memory at any time. This makes me happy as does being tidy.
"A different approach to tidying"
I purchased this book as it's sparked my curiosity as I am always tidying and was hoping for a miracle. I started applying the methods detailed in the book to organise my home whilst still reading the book and was pleasantly surprised to how it made me feel about my possessions. The book is well laid out, easy to follow and I would recommend to anyone who wants to declutter their home. The author takes you through the process in small stages and it is actually enjoyable!
"Not that impressed!"
The book had some useful ideas, but it was not what I was expecting so was left a little disappointed.
