Japanese decluttering expert Marie Kondo has taken the world by storm with her Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is Kondo's guide to decluttering your home using her famed KonMari Method, and Spark Joy is an illustrated manual with step-by-step instructions for folding clothes and tackling messy areas of the home. With these two books, you can capture the joy of Marie Kondo's tidy lifestyle for yourself.
“Ms. Kondo delivers her tidy manifesto like a kind of Zen nanny, both hortatory and animistic.”—New York Times
“A literal how-to-heave-ho, and I recommend it for anyone who struggles with the material excess of living in a privileged society. (Thanks to Ms. Kondo, I kiss my old socks goodbye.)…To show you how serious my respect for Ms. Kondo is: if I ever get a tattoo, it will say, Spark Joy!”—Jamie Lee Curtis, Time
“This book lives up to its title: it will change your life.”—B.J. Novak, People
