The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story Reviews
This was insightful. Honestly I want to get rid of all the unnecessary junk in my room because I'm always a mess. I haven't started yet so maybe I'll update later on if it worked or not.
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.
Konmari revolution - in manga! All the same concepts and categories, and the visual book format was fun to read. People read books like this for inspiration, and it worked! I am konmari-ing my bookshelves and office now. Spark joy!
Quick review for a quick read. I could say that my initial reaction upon finishing this book was "ERMAHGARD, THIS IS SO CUTE AND INFORMATIVE AND I CAN'T DEAL, AND KONMARI REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE A FAIRY! GAAAAAAAAAHHHH!"
But then that really would only scratch the surface of the amount of joy that I received from this book. It's a cute story that takes many of the principles from Marie Kondo's "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and puts it in a story-based manga format. The illustrations in i ...more
The KonMari Method of household organization has been bantered about amongst my friends for the last year, but I had not read the book until now. This graphic novel is a super cute, appealing way of presenting the valuable information to all ages. I read it fast, went back to reread sections and I love the illustrations. I have never even looked at a graphic novel before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how fun this one is. The techniques make sense immediately since it is all visual. I loved ...more
Jadi, waktu itu habis baca buku ini tibalah seluruh pesanan harbolnasku dari salah satu toko buku online (stres nggak kalo gini) (kobaran semangat decluttering seketika hampir sirna).
On a more serious note, this is an important read for those who think it's okay to have a lot of stuffs as long as your space looks tidy by keeping them in boxes/cardboards--and too lazy to read the life-changing magic of tidying up--the manga version is quite great as alternative ;)).
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!
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"]>
