The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story Reviews
Really helpful strategies, presented in a fun way through easy-to-follow manga. I'm looking forward to trying these out (though I might skip the whole "thanking" bit..).
I've been moving out of my house into a new one and I've been ordering some storage/de-cluttering books and this one has been the most helpful and inspiring! I've taken some pictures of the folding portions and some quotes. The main idea is that if your items don't spark joy then it's time to get rid of them. There are some other tips in the book too that have really helped me like go through all your stuff by category instead of by room, folding techniques, and very respectful and soulful ideas ...more
It is time to tidy up your life! Well, if you are such a terrible case as Chiaki is. :P
I already knew about the normal book, and I even tried it, but it just wasn't for me. So when I saw there was a manga for the book, I was curious, but also hesitant. I read a sample online and well, I couldn't resist. The art was fun, the story seemed interesting, and I wanted to know if garbage-dump-living Chiaki could change her way.
Chiaki is really terrible in cleaning/tidying up. I mean, I get that you get ...more
This was a cute, fun read.
It piqued my curiosity, held my interest, and didn't take long to finish.
Ms. Kondo put forth some interesting ideas and helpful suggestions re: tidying up.
And, yes, she totally goes there regarding all the books I... I mean, Chiaki has.
Which are still some of the hardest things in the world for me to let go of...
Uh... sorry. Just had a moment there...
Shocking, I know.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
I read KonMari’s book, The Magic of Tidying and it was excellent! This one added more info and was even more helpful. The visual in the manga art was very useful.
Gotta admit, though that I skipped the tidying of books a bit. Clothes? No prob. Movies? Yep. Music? Pshaw! But, books? ✨Joy! ✨Joy! ✨Joy! Oh well. 🤷🏼♀ ...more
I haven't read the original book and I enjoyed this format since it was a fast read and exactly the amount of time I was willing to devote to the subject. Some of the advice seems sensible but I couldn't take the personification of objects seriously. However, I did appreciate that the protagonist learns to not just do everything "for the time being." Very relatable. Now I just need to tidy up.
I got rid of like 80% of my wardrobe, folded by shirts into little packages and stored them upright in a drawer, cleaned out my kitchen closet filled with one-use appliances that I hadn't touched in years, and thanked each item as I donated or trashed it. 10/10 even more effective than the book. This one has handy folding illustrations!
Cute and informative. So konmari.
