Marie Kondo’s 6 Rules of Tidying May Not Be for Bookworms

Marie Kondo has taken Netflix by storm with her rules about tying and de-cluttering your home. People are excited to share their newly cleaned homes for the new year, making their spring cleaning more like a winter cleaning this year.


Her 6 rules of tidying:


1.    Commit yourself to tidying up.

    2.    Imagine your ideal lifestyle.

    3.    Discard first.

    4.    Tidy by category, not by location.

    5.    Follow the right order: clothes, books, paper, miscellaneous items and sentimental items.

    6.    Ask yourself if it sparks joy.

Kondo, being the cleaning guru of the modern day, has released plenty of good advice, but there is one piece of advice that people just can’t seem to get behind.



The second biggest thing that one should work on tidying up in their household is books. While it’s very easy to throw out that sweater you bought 2 years ago and never wore again, books are a whole different story and Twitter responded loudly to this part of her guidelines.

This only proves that to some people, having an endless supply of books is like hoarding, and to others it’s just like building a library.
