The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up

The Netflix series “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”, released on New Year’s Day, has sparked a revitalization of the “KonMari” method of decluttering. The method is outlined in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo published in 2014. We have a copy at the Aurora Public Library and on the Digital Download Center. There is also an audiobook, illustrated edition, and a manga about the method on the Digital Download Center.

Simply put, the technique challenges you to pull everything out into the open, divide it into categories, and then decide if it “sparks joy” or not. Everything that does not, you thank for the time you had with it and methodically discard it.

Happy tidying!
