Cleaning Magic - is this book worth reading?

The magic of cleaning Marie Kondo is a big hit lately. More and more people have read or want to read it. After many different opinions, I decided that I want to read it. Was it worth it? Do i recommend it You will find out below.

What is this book about?

The magic of cleaning is a book that is designed to motivate us to clean up, get rid of excess things. It is also meant to make us appreciate what we have more.

What did I like about the book?

I really liked emphasizing the appreciation of material goods. I have the impression that many of us underestimate what we have at all, and always want something more. I belonged to this group myself, but one day my life changed. From want / have my approach changed to mum / I have.
Thanks to this thinking, I began to appreciate the things that surround me. Of course, I still have a lot of things on the list that I would like to have, but who would a man without dreams be? Besides, my greed is not as strong as it used to be.

Do I recommend the book?

The advice contained in the book did not meet my expectations. I had the impression that the author repeats the same thing over and over again. As I was brainwashing, I read the same thing all the time. I didn't learn anything new.
I didn't like a few things - picking up pages from books with quotes that we like, throwing out 90% of things (in my opinion, this is not the key to success), as well as arranging clothes vertically (we have too few things to work in our closet ).

To be honest, the book did not convince me, if you are looking for good books on minimalism and cleaning, I recommend it Slow Fashion or At home, Madame Chic. These books will definitely bring more to your life than the Magic of Cleaning.

    I am glad that I found your entry. I was thinking about buying, but I think I'll give it to myself. I read both slow fashion and madame chic. I liked both books very much, so the magic of cleaning will not bring much in this topic. If you haven't read it yet, I recommend "minimalism in Polish" - I have also written reviews on my blog if you are curious. The book shows how to bring order to the home and how chaos arises in it. A really great position.

      This book is on my reading list. I have to get the ebook finally 🙂

    I would not reach for it, such books do not motivate me, they even irritate me.

    I would love to read this book, but I believe that every real Housewife has her own recipe for success that works with her. Not every way is good for everyone 🙂

    I have this book, but I haven't read it yet and I'm not drawn to it.

    Recently, standing at the checkout in Empik I almost tempted this book, because it is known that at the checkout is full of recommended and discounted items. But I think it's good that I didn't buy it after all, since it doesn't contain anything revealing. Pulling out pages from a book is for me total stupidity and somewhat limiting the possibility of re-reading.

      I saw that she was on sale in empik when I was buying presents. I read the ebook 😉

    The subject of minimalism has been close to me for some time, I try to bring order to my home so as not to clutter, throw away or give away what is unnecessary, but also not to buy things that are not really needed.

    I am not tempted by this book because I don't like tutorials. Everyone else will do better and have their own methods, e.g. cleaning.

    I am not strongly connected with minimalism, but at least I learned not to buy a few pieces in store. ;]

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 December 2015 / 17: 11

      I just like to buy in store, but only those products that I know I will use again, e.g. Sylveco micelles, liquid soap or paper towels 😉

    I read many opinions about this book and only having it in my collection do I agree with negative opinions. Zero pictures and tips are not appropriate. We know what who likes, most will do it their own way?

      I didn't even know that this book doesn't have a lot of negative reviews. However, I am not surprised.

    I have never liked cleaning and no book will convince me to do it with pleasure. Also, getting pages out of books? Bestiality!!!!

      I like cleaning, but mainly when it comes to browsing and sorting things. I don't like everyday activities like dusting or washing the mirror.

    I could use a decent order in the wardrobe with clothes. I hope these other book suggestions will be in the library, I think they will help me understand what I have

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 December 2015 / 17: 13

      I really recommend cleaning the wardrobe. I have done a thorough cleaning myself in my wardrobe and I do not regret it 😉

    I have read the book and liked it, but this is my subjective opinion 🙂 I put some of her advice into practice and I am very pleased. With these types of books there is always a risk that the author's advice will not suit us or will simply prove to be of no use to us. Best wishes 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 December 2015 / 11: 00

      I wonder which advice did you put into practice? Let me know, maybe I missed something, and it is worth putting it into practice 🙂

      Of course, you may like this book, maybe if I was the first to read this type of book, I would be pleased. However, this is one in turn, so it did not impress me much 🙁 I also greet!

    In fact, throwing things away in minimalism is already an exaggeration, I threw it out when she was fascinated and then I had to buy something a second time because it turned out to be necessary for me. Plus, I pay more attention to quality and don't buy just anything, because it's a waste of money, though I would like to have more space around me. It gives a sense of freedom, in fact, the impression that if I had to pack and leave, I will do it without any problems and I do not need a company to move.

      A very healthy approach. I looked at all the things in the house and thrown away those that I know will not be useful to me. I also threw out a lot of photos that presented nothing and left only those that were really important to me.

      One more move is waiting for us, so there will probably be a big review of things again and throwing unnecessary things, although I think this time it will be really not enough.

    I have, I read because such books motivate me to clean :)

  16. Avatar GumaDoZuciax3 26 December 2015 / 09: 37

    I wanted to read it, but after the entry I felt like it 😛 I would like to read "At home at Madame Chic" 🙂

    I was also thinking about this book. 🙂
