Description: Introduction Why can''t I keep my house in order? You can''t tidy if you''ve never learned how A tidying marathon doesn''t cause rebound Tidy a little a day and you''ll be tidying forever Why you should aim for perfection The moment you start you reset your life Storage experts are hoarders Sort by category, not by location Don''t change the method to suit your personality Make tidying a special event, not a daily chore Finish discarding first Start by discarding, all at once, intensely and completely Before you start, visualize your destination Selection criterion: does it spark joy? One category at a time Starting with mementos spells certain failure Don''t let your family see If you''re mad at your family, your room may be the cause What you don''t need, your family doesn''t either Tidying is a dialogue with one''s self What to do when you can''t throw something away Tidying by category works like magic Tidying order: follow the correct order of categories Clothing: place every item of clothing in the house on the floor Loungewear: downgrading to "loungewear" is taboo Clothing storage: fold it right and solve your storage problems How to fold: the best way to fold for perfect appearance Arranging clothes: the secret to energizing your closet Storing socks: treat your socks and stockings with respect Seasonal clothes: eliminate the need to store off-season clothes Storing books: put all your books on the floor Unread books: "sometime" means "never" Books to keep: those that belong in the hall of fame Sorting papers: rule of thumb--discard everything All about papers: how to organize troublesome papers Komono (miscellaneous items): keep things because you love them--not "just because" Common types of komono : disposables Small change: make "into my wallet" your motto Sentimental items: your parents'' home is not a haven for mementos Photos: cherish who you are now Astounding stockpiles I have seen Reduce until you reach the point where something clicks Follow your intuition and all will be well Storing your things to make your life shine Designate a place for each thing Discard first, store later Storage: pursue ultimate simplicity Don''t scatter storage spaces Forget about "flow planning" and "frequency of use" Never pile things: vertical storage is the key No need for commercial storage items The best way to store bags is in another bag Empty your bag every day Items that usurp floor space belong in the closet Keep things out of the bath and the kitchen sink Make the top shelf of the bookcase your personal shrine Decorate your closet with your secret delights Unpack and de-tag new clothes immediately Don''t underestimate the "noise" of written information Appreciate your possessions and gain strong allies The magic of tidying dramatically transforms your life Put your house in order and discover what you really want to do The magic effect of tidying Gaining confidence in life through the magic of tidying An attachment to the past or anxiety about the future Learning that you can do without Do you greet your house? Your possessions want to help you Your living space affects your body Is it true that tidying increases good fortune? How to identify what is truly precious Being surrounded by things that spark joy makes you happy Your real life begins after putting your house in order Afterword About the author Index
