The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

"The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Marie Kondo is a book on organizing and decluttering from an Asian viewpoint.  I am always looking for an organizing book from a different stand point.   The first few chapters of the book are interesting about the author's life from her youth on her organizing her life around her.  I will admit this portion of the book was slow.  The rest of the book is hands on tips on organizing.  It was helpful some but I just couldn't get past where the author tells you to thank your clothes as you put them away and the letting your things talk to you as you decide what to keep. Also the author's advice on what papers to keep is very lacking as we must keep some important papers for awhile not just throw everything away right away.  This was one of those books where I am having to spit out the bones to get to the meat but there was not that much meat.  If you want a quick read with some good tips then I will recommend this book but with caution.

I was given this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review and not required to give a positive review.
