The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying

A simple, effective way to banish clutter forever

by Marie Kondo, 258 pages

Finished on 7th of March, 2016, buy here.


The book took the world by storm. The trend of “decluttering” your home and belongings from all the unnecessary things was started by her. The idea of Minimalism got a huge boost through her works. Phrases like “sparking joy” made it into the public vocabulary. She got her own Netflix series, freeing hoarders of their material burden. 

Kondo writes eloquently and gets to the point fast. It’s a pleasure running through this book and it certainly got me to make a few changes that still sit tight in my brain.
