Synopsis

Spark Joy is an in-depth, line illustrated, room-by-room guide to decluttering and organising your home, 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. The 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. The 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' 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. Marie Kondo's first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying, presents her unique tidying philosophy and introduces 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.

MARIE KONDO started reading housewives' magazines from the age of five and loved the order and beauty of the well-organised spaces she saw in them. Then, from the age of 15 she started studying tidying seriously. She started with her own bedroom and then moved onto her siblings'. Today she runs a highly successful business in Tokyo helping clients transform their cluttered homes into spaces of beauty, peace and inspiration.

If, like me, you were a bit sniffy about the idea of a whole book about tidying, then think again. The big takeaway is the title idea: keep nothing that doesn’t spark a feeling of joy when you look at it or hold it. Built around this simple concept is practical guidance on how to sort, discard and tidy so that you are in control of your possessions rather than the other way around. Kondo’s passion for her subject, combined with some genuinely useful tips and ideas make this one of the possessions you’ll want to hang on to.
