After the success of her best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, author and cleaning consultant Marie Kondo is set to release a new book that will surely help you stick to your resolutions and organizing promises.

Entitled Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up, it features a helpful manual on how to declutter and organize the different items found around the home. According to the author's website, easy-to-follow drawings of Kondo's patented folding method completes the book and readers get to see how it's applied to different pieces of clothing. As a bonus, there will also be images of properly organized drawers, closets, and cabinets that will surely inspire readers to clean up. (tidyingup.com)

In a report by the Washington Post, Kondo will also "answer some of the questions raised after her first book, such as what to do about items that don't spark joy but are still needed."

To give you an idea of what to expect, here's a video of Marie Kondo folding and fitting essentials into a tiny space.

We definitely can't wait to have a copy of the book! Here's hoping it hits newsstands soon. Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up will be available in US newsstands by January 5. For more details, visit Marie Kondo's website.
