Spark Joy: an Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up by Marie Kondo; translated from the Japanese by Cathy Hirano

This is a companion to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: the Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing where Marie Kondo offers some more in-depth advice on how to fold and organize. She seems to have relaxed her principles in some areas, but then she still offers some other guidelines that seem a little strange, such as how to dispose of stuffed animals and old pictures.   If you haven't read her first book, this one would be OK but as it's more of a refresher, you will miss some of the underlying principles to the basics detailed in the first book.
