Marie is utterly bonkers, but a huge amount of what she says makes perfect sense. My house already feels bigger and I feel lighter having chucked out stuff that I was never going to read/finish/wear/use/look at ever again. A real breath of fresh air with a far wider impact than just having a tidy home.

Tidy once so you never have to do it again, that what got me to buy this book.
It really inspires you to get rid of your excess and clear the clutter once and for all. It gets quite addictive once you start and it carries on through everything in your life. I managed to throw away things that I had been holding onto for years and all my house now is neatly organised Kondo style or I've Konmarried my house like the author 's followers would say.
I always used to tidy and clean before reading this book but somehow another few days and it would be exactly the same, not any more. Best book I have ever had on decluttering and it really has lifted a great weight off my shoulders and allowed me to enjoy my life. I don't mind visitors dropping by unannounced anymore, it's a pleasure. The time I used to spend tiding is now spent cleaning until it shines.
It feels strange to thank your clothes and possessions before parting with them for good but it really works. I can now really clean my house in less than an hour because everything has a place to go. I especially like the way my drawers look and they stay that way like on auto pilot now. It's a pleasure to open the drawer and choose my clothing now. I will never go back to my old ways.
It would be extremely helpful to me if you hit the YES button if you liked my review or NO and a comment so I can improve future reviews.

What a great read. Really motivated me to put my house in order. Now I can find scissors, string, matches...etc. Everything has a place, and what I dont need or like has gone to the charity shop.

Half way through the read I felt compelled to reorganise my partners over stuffed drawers....I didn't throw any of his belongings away, but by simply adopting the vertical storage everything is now in sight and fits! I feel inspired to tackle my shocking hoarding now!
