Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles? Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo's clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house "spark joy" (and which don't), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo's newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home-and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Emily Woo Zeller captures the voice of author Marie Kondo so perfectly that itÕs as if the Japanese de-cluttering guru is speaking in person. Zeller uses delightful character voices during quotes from KondoÕs clients, conveys the wry humor in how tidying can actually change your life, and evokes a Zen-like quality to the advice on letting clutter go with gratitude. Zeller expertly conveys the authorÕs obsession with tidying, along with her self-effacing humor and nonjudgmental outlook. With advice such as allowing your handbag to rest at night, making a place for every possession (from your stockings to your kimono), and saying thank you to the items you discard, this audiobook is perfect for listeners looking for inspiration as well as those who enjoy Japanese culture.
