I first stumbled on this book while perusing a home decorating page of Facebook.
The post for this book had hundreds of likes and scores of comments. Even though I wasn’t looking to reorganize my belongings, I was intrigued. How could I not be, when so many women I knew were saying that their lives were changed over it. I wasn’t in need of a life change, I knew, but I was looking for the sort of life changing epiphany that others readers seemed to be having.
I read it. My life was changed.
I could not wait to get rid of the extra stuff that had claimed room in my mind and in my soul. So many clothing articles made it into my “non-joyedness” pile. Vertical storage was in, and horizontal storage was out.
The next area, right after my attire was bathroom clutter. I got rid of so many things there.
The next area to work on is the kitchen. I am looking forward to that.
I love what the Konmari Method has done in my life. It has made me realize that material goods not only take up physical space, but take up mental and emotional space, too. Now that the needless things are gone, what is left is room to think and room to feel.
What I am most thrilled over is how this has inspired my friends and family. They’ve shed the “clutter weight” and are feeling as light as I am.
If you are looking for something to change how you live inside and out, give this book a shot.
