Spark JoyThe 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”Β 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, illustrated, room-by-room guide to decluttering and organising your home. It covers every room in the house 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.

Charming line drawings explain how to properly organise drawers, wardrobes, cupboards and cabinets. Illustrations also show Ms Kondo’s unique folding method, clearly showing how to fold anything from shirts, trousers and jackets to skirts, socks and bras.

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. Spark Joy is Marie Kondo’s in-depth tidying masterclass, focusing on the detail of how to declutter and organise your home.

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo is available from Dymocks.

I've had many careers in my life and loved each one! My new career blossomed when I retired and become an OAP. I am passionate about childhood literacy, books in general and my garden. I love Ballet, Opera, Concerts, Theatre, (both professional and community) and Movies. I tend to have opinions on most things and enjoy a good debate about the topic, not the person. In my thirties, I married my GOM (Gorgeous or Grumpy Old Man) the love of my life.

  1. If I bought the book, which is advertised in this post, telling me how to declutter, I would end up with a book I didn’t need which would just add to the clutter. (which I don’t have in the first place).

    • My daughter wanted me to buy this book. My unread book stash will last me years as it is. That’ll be when the internet goes down and I’m free from Facebook forever.

  2. No, ours is fine. There is still room to walk through the living room πŸ™‚

  3. Because we have moved homes quite a few times, I declutter often. It makes moving so much easier!
