About The Author

The author of The Life Changing  Magic Of Tiding is Marie Kondo she is a Japanese author. She grew up with an interest in keeping her things tidy and hence loved reading housewives magazines from an early age of 5.

 The Story Line of the Book

In this book, Marie Kondo shares her tips and secrets of tidying and organising your house in the correct order. She shares how to organise clothes by categories. How to fold clothing doing it only once using the KonMari  Method.

She expresses that the KonMari Method is an easy way to transform your living space and it will also change you as a person. It will motivate you to live your life better.

She talks about keeping things in your life that spark joy only and to discard things that don’t spark joy.

She advise to touch each item that you have and see if it sparks joy in your heart.

If it sparks joy in your heart you can keep it if it does not spark joy in your heart you should thank the item and let go of it.

What I Thought About The Book

This book inspired me in a lot of ways. I like the way this book was written it’s easy to follow. The book cover is simple and clutter free.

I picked up this book to read mainly because I heard very good reviews from people who had read it and I am so happy that I had this opportunity of reading such an excellent book.

This book helped me to transform my life in a better way as I was reading it I couldn’t help myself as I was trying out her KonMarie Method on my clothes. I was surprised with the amount of clothing that I was keeping which didn’t spark any joy in my heart.

I managed to sort out all my clothing and then moved on to my husband and then the kids clothing I managed to take 15 bags of clothing out from our home to a charity shop.

If you want to transform, organise and tidy your life and live a better life, a life full of things that you love then this book is for you. It will help you to achieve this easily.

I am happy with how my clothes turned out after organising using the Konmari method. I organised my items using storage boxes I mentioned in this post 5 Clever Ways To Organise Your Chest of Drawer.

I have more space in my wardrobe,  I can see things in my wardrobe easily and I love everything in there now.

I am still working toward putting some order to papers and books in my house and I hope to get there soon.

I am so looking forward to reading Marie Kondo’s follow up book to this one which is called Spark Joy: An Illustrated Guide to the Japanese Art of Tidying. I have heard very good reviews of this book can’t wait to get my hands on it and give you my review about it.


I highly recommend this book to someone who whats to live an organised life and banish clutter for good. This book will definitely transform you and your life.
