5.0 out of 5 stars Yes - it really is life-changing!, 24 April 2014

This review is from: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A simple, effective way to banish clutter forever (Kindle Edition)
Firstly, if you're wondering whether to buy this book - BUY IT - let's get that out in the open right at the beginning! I bought it and read it within 48 hours and I've been to the tip twice since then (2 days ago). If ever there was a persuasive argument to make you de-clutter, this is it. I love that Marie Kondo is not afraid to admit that she spent her entire childhood tidying up - quite funny, but as an adult I reckon I've done the same! I must have spent years of time and money shuffling my belongings around the house, each time thinking I've got the perfect storage solution. After reading this book, I subjected each and every item to the "does it bring me joy" test and boy, what a shocker. The answer so far is 80% NO! Which means I've wasted all this time on stuff I don't even like!

After Marie goes through the actual de-cluttering process, the rest of the book is a fascinating summary of what happens next, which is where the life-changing bit comes in. Sounds a bit far fetched, but for me, just at the beginning of the process, I definitely feel like a burden is lifting. I feel I can breathe again - the rooms have space to breathe too and I am surrounded only by things that bring me joy! No more crap!!

It's all a bit of a revelation really - and definitely a journey worth taking. My mind is already beginning to buzz with ideas about what I can now do with my time ... instead of spending it tidying up!
