Clear the clutter from your home—and your mind—with help from Japan’s “queen of clean” Marie Kondo. Japanese organizational consultant and lifestyle phenomenon Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. With a practical yet philosophical approach, Marie explains her patented KonMari Method, a category-by-category approach to efficient tidying. Learn to tackle decluttering head on and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire. Does an item “spark joy?”—if it does, keep it; if it doesn’t, throw it away. “When we really delve into the reasons for why we can’t let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or fear for the future.” Moderated by Wendy Goodman, design editor at New York magazine, with translator Lisle Wilkerson.
