If you’ve been in a bookstore or perused Pinterest for organizing ideas lately, you’ve probably heard of Marie Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which was then followed by Spark Joy.

Why? Well, I blame it on the fact that I’m a visual learner. I would be reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, sailing along, loving what Marie Kondo had to say. Then she would specifically describe how she folded a particular article of clothing or arranged a shelf. Hold the phone. The flow of my reading screeched to a halt. Can someone please draw me a picture?
Spark Joy does that. As the book describes itself, it’s an “illustrated master class on the art of organizing and tidying up.” It’s the illustrated guidebook to its predecessor.
But let’s back up a bit.
Isn’t this just another book about organizing?
Absolutely not. It’s so much more. The KonMari method (a combination of the author’s first and last names) is a lifestyle. It urges you to simplify, minimize, keep only those things that bring you joy, so that you have room in your life for other things that really matter.
Over the course of the next few weeks, I am going to share with you: my KonMari journey, how I disagree with Marie Kondo (nothing major, I promise!), and practical applications for the KonMari method in “Real Life.”
