Both books offered techniques that were helpful for me — and you definitely don’t have to take every word seriously (especially in Kondo’s book), just the stuff that you find useful.
Promising review for The Life-Changing Magic: “It’s soaked with knowledge and super inspiring! As a chronically messy person, this book completely changed my perspective on ‘tidying,’ what to throw away or get rid of, and how to find joy in your space again, how to reclaim it! Honestly pretty awakening, and I think absolutely everyone could learn something from it.” —rainydayshopping
Promising review for Unf*ck Your Habitat: “I love this book! It is nonjudgemental and actually applicable to a normal human. This is a book I can follow, use, and come back to. The author doesn’t shame you into cleaning and takes different lifestyles, mental health and mobility restrictions into account. Can’t recommend enough if you’re looking to change your cleanliness habits in a way that is gentle and doesn’t make you feel like a pile of garbage yourself.” —R-Dinner
