The Magic of the KonMari Method: Editing Your Book and Paper Collection
Keeping only the books and paper that spark joy in you right now is key to the second category of tidying up and organizing, using the famous method
My mom used to tell me that I could spend more money on two things: books and food. That piece of advice gave me the license to eat anything I craved for, and cram my bookshelves to the brim.
To start with the second category of the KonMari Method, I took the books out from the shelves and on the floor, which was a tedious (not to mention heavy and dusty) process, but a necessary one, according to Kondo. She says, “Just like the gentle shake we use to wake someone up, we can stimulate our belongings by physically moving them, exposing them to fresh air and making them conscious.” She gives four categories to divide the books in corresponding piles:
- General – books you read for pleasure
- Practical – references, cookbooks, etc.
- Visual – photograph collections, etc.
