Tucked away in attics, basements, barns and storage units are countless bound volumes of prized ephemera. School texts, journals and diaries, long out of print books and antiquated family bibles, filled with the now-defunct practice of documenting genealogy and family history are retained, out of sight but not out of mind. Rarely are these family heirlooms pulled out of storage, but those who own them take comfort in knowing that they are there. Sadly, these books are typically not cared for as well as they deserve.

Kondo can come off as a little strange--she has VERY particular ways of folding socks to "keep them happy," and she recommends saying "thank you" out loud to the objects you use every day for all their hard work. Whether you follow this book to a T or take it with a grain of salt, her methods will leave you with a neater environment and a greater appreciation for the things you own. ~ Reviewed by Marisa Langlois
