really liked it
This book was sooooooooooooo cute =)
And I did actually learn some tidbits of information about getting rid of stuff. I have been getting rid of stuff for some time now but it never seems to make a difference. And I have recently started getting rid of books I’m not going to read again so it’s making more room!
Chiaki is the girl in this book and boy is she a hoarder! But I thought Chiaki and Marie had a good time tidying up and setting priorities. I actually have a few more things I want to add
The KonMari Method of household organization has been bantered about amongst my friends for the last year, but I had not read the book until now. This graphic novel is a super cute, appealing way of presenting the valuable information to all ages. I read it fast, went back to reread sections and I love the illustrations. I have never even looked at a graphic novel before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how fun this one is. The techniques make sense immediately since it is all visual. I loved
Some of the ideas in the book are just out there as in “far out, man”, even to a Portlandian like me. I don’t care if my clothes receive my love and appreciation, I’m not going to fold dresses and skirts into a drawer. But, the advice on getting rid of the clutter is priceless. I especially like and will use the information on sorting all the paper that seems to accumulate constantly in my house.
I know a lot of my reader peeps will cringe at the “getting rid of books” section! I happen to agree with the author. I only keep books I love and that bring me joy. Once I have read a book, I pass it on to someone else because I have already experienced it.
My 20-year old is anxious to read this precious little book and I would be thrilled if some of the tidying ideas that Marie Kondo introduces will take hold! Thanks so much to Ten Speed Press for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book. All opinions are my own.
I read KonMari’s book, The Magic of Tidying and it was excellent! This one added more info and was even more helpful. The visual in the manga art was very useful.
Gotta admit, though that I skipped the tidying of books a bit. Clothes? No prob. Movies? Yep. Music? Pshaw! But, books? ✨Joy! ✨Joy! ✨Joy! Oh well. ♀
