With the new year approaching, getting rid of all of the junk in our lives is top of mind. And that’s why Marie Kondo’s much talked about tome The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing is at the top of our 2015 reading list.

In a popular article in the New York Times from October of this year, the author breaks down the methods that she uses to cut the clutter in her life and those of her clients. Advice includes not buying organizing devices, thanking your belongings for their service before letting them go, and holding every object you own in your hand and contemplating if it “sparks joy.” If it does not, get rid of it!

Gulp. That last piece of advice has us thinking our home will be an empty shell in no time. That is, if we can actually buckle down and follow-through on Kondo’s advice. We don’t know about you, but for ten bucks, we’re down to see if the 30-year-old expert’s internationally acclaimed teachings will offer a much needed dose of “life-changing magic” into our own lives. Who else is up for the challenge?

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, $10.19, Amazon.
