Publisher's Summary

Marie Kondo's unique KonMari method of tidying up is nothing short of life changing - and her first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, has become a worldwide sensation.

In Spark Joy, Kondo presents an in-depth manual on how to declutter and organize specific items throughout the house, from kitchen and bathroom items to work-related papers and hobby collections. Listener-friendly examples illustrate Kondo's patented folding method as it applies to shirts, pants, socks, and jackets as well as properly organized drawers, closets, and cabinets. This book is perfect for anyone who wants a home - and life - that sparks joy.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Wonderful perspective!"

    Marie covers everything! Every excuse, every question, every room, cabinet, and shelf of your home is discussed. She answers every question you have ever had when decluttering your home. The best part is that she does it without scolding and without telling you what you need or don't need. She gives you the tools. You and only you can determine what sparks joy in your home. The ultimate goal is not to have a picture perfect home, but to have a home that brings you joy. Highly recommend.

    "Inspiring"

    If this book does not entice you into changing the way you think about your possessions, how to choose what to keep in your life and how and where to keep it, then you are not ready for tidying. More than a how-to manual, this book gives valuable tips on how to deal with your emotional attachment to things and how to tidy some of the most challenging items/categories in your home.

    "Game Changer"
    What made the experience of listening to Spark Joy the most enjoyable?

    The narration was very relaxing and made for a very pleasant listening experience.


    What does Sumalee Montano bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was really enjoyable to be able to listen as I folded and found homes for everything that brought me joy! :)

    "I know the colors of my socks."

    It sparks joy within to see just how this system of folding and "stacking " clothes be it blouses or socks in drawers. At one time I had two sock drawers full of balled up socks in plastic dividers. Upon reorganizing, by folding I am able to get the two drawers into one and view from the top immediately all the beiges to Brown's to grays to blacks. This system really does work.i have great joy every time I now go to select a pair to be worn. So it is with my blouses too. Try it and you will see what I mean!

    "This book is making my life better."

    I've read KonMari's first book, but it was after reading SparkJoy when it all finally made sense for me. Tidying is a simple concept to think about, it's mostly "common sense", but now I think of it as a lifestyle or a way of life.

    For the first time in my life, my space is staying ordered and clean without a lot of effort. I feel lighter and more free without the excess things that don't bring joy or value to my life.

    Thank you KonMari!

    "Practical and inspiring"

    Loved it! listened to it after finishing the first book. This one is more practical for ppl with kids. It clarifies things. It gets to the nitty gritty without all the stories from the first book. It still has stories but they are shorter and relate to the category she's discussing.

    "A worthy follow up to the original"

    Finished listening my second time through. If you enjoyed the first, I think you will find this follow up equally enlightening.

    "Spark Joy - An Enchanting Read!"

    I listened to this book while driving home from Florida where I visited my mother. And this book has "sparked" my eagerness to change my surroundings - and my life - through this Japanese wisdom. Sumalee Montano has neatly laid out the plan to declutter by focusing on the joy one's possessions bring, and Marie Kondo articulates the book beautifully. This will be an adventure!
