    One thought on “The Art of Discarding: How to Get Rid of Clutter and Find Joy”

    1. The book manages to be both dated and very relevant If you re tired of all the sorting gurus, this may be well rhe right book for you It tells you exactly where you and everyone else goes wrong in the practice of tidying up and throwing away So yes, please read the book, take out whatever you need, and then throw it out The 2000s had their floppy disks and that s the one thing I don t have any trouble with.

    2. jessjustreadsThe Art of Discarding was first published in the year 2000 and has now been reprinted as a gorgeous nifty hardback It was the book that inspired Marie Kondo to write The Life Changing Magic of Tidying and in it, Nagisa argues that we need to learn to let go, and she tackles the psychological issues that people have with getting rid of things In particular, a reluctance to discard things just in case , the desire to hoard things, and guilt about getting rid of things that were given [...]

    3. I have read a lot of books on getting rid of clutter and becoming of a minimalist I love the topic See my clutter book category in So when I saw that this book is what inspired Marie Kondo s books, I decided to read it It is not my favorite but I still liked it There was some unnecessary repetition and a few typos Here is a great line If you have it use it If you don t use it, don t have it Reading the book created another wave of me getting rid of stuff I don t use

    4. good book to start with, but it s too much in details if that would be my first book i would read it daily before my house get freedom but being well taught with Marie Kondo i would say it s a bit too much.

    5. This is a great book to get your mind set for a big or even small organizing project I really enjoyed the way the author broke down the ideas about how to get rid of the things we no longer need It helped me organize my mind as well as my items I am now inspired to clean it out even than I had already She has offered many great examples and tips on the whole process that would be helpful to everyone It is a resource I will definitely keep, share its ideas with friends and refer to often The aut [...]

    6. Advertised as The book that inspired Marie Kondo s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up Which says a lot.Kondo s book was fine I did not love it and I don t think it s sooooo special, but it was fine.But this one is a bit boring to read, and although it tries to be practical it was not actually helpful for me The author keeps repeating discard it, discard it ALL, discard no matter what and at certain point it gets annoying I specially disliked his insistence on discarding things such as paperwo [...]

    7. Full disclosure I received this book for free in a giveaway This book was so effective I threw it away Ok, not really Long story short, this is a quick read full of tough love advice such as acknowledging that you re never going to use those things that might be useful someday Although the book was written only 12 years ago, it feels very dated at times I m not sure if the culture difference has anything to do with it, but as an American living in 2017 I feel like it still would have been dated [...]

    8. A practical little handbook for anyone trying to get started with decluttering and living a simpler lifestyle, or just as a refresher in keeping up good habits It takes a blunt look at people s common attitudes toward their possessions and how those attitudes even positive ones like reluctance to be wasteful can hinder them in attempts at decluttering and simplifying and offers practical suggestions in dealing with those issues It can be a bit repetitive i.e some chapters seem to re hash or re s [...]

    9. This was a really interesting read I can see how Marie Kondo got inspiration from it I can also see why it didn t take off like the KonMarie method did This book is pretty cold when it comes to the emotional value we put on things, whereas the KonMarie method acknowledges the emotions we put in things and makes the discarding process a little easier on the heart.That being said, I think this book has three big advantages over the KonMarie method.1 It talks at length about wastefulness and its as [...]

    10. Marie Kondo, author of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, says that this book inspired her While this book gave Kondo her basic structure, Kondo s method gathering all of a category and keeping what sparks joy is less ruthless than Tatsumi s hard line to discard, discard, discard While I ve lived in cluttered homes, my own home is not cluttered I try to employ Tatsumi s method of discarding when I notice that an item is expired, broken, worn out, unused, etc That said, I do struggle with col [...]

    11. But in my experience, if the difference between reality and your idea of perfection is too great, you may lose the will to be tidy and just allow things to accumulate p 93

    12. For those who have read Marie Kondo s The Magical Art of Tidying Up, there are still some nuggets to glean from The Art of Discarding I enjoyed the structure of the book, as Tatsumi encourages people to Think Like This and offers suggestions on specific items of which to be wary My favorite passage To stop seeing things are sacred, you have to tell yourself one thing When I am dead, it will all be trash Point taken.I also like Tatsumi s strategies about how one can learn to tidy, and areas in wh [...]

    13. Libro interessante, che analizza alcuni aspetti psicologici legati alla reticenza con cui non buttiamo le cose Il libro offre anche un attenta disamina di cosa pu essere buttato e con quale criterio, ma personalmente trovo abbia ben poco da offrire in pi rispetto a Il magico potere del riordino , di Marie Kondo Per chi si sta avvicinando al tema per la prima volta pu essere sicuramente un ottima lettura, ma per chi ha gi letto il metodo Kondo trovo abbia poco da offrire, ad eccezione forse di un [...]

    14. til para profundizar en el minimalismo tras leer los libros de MArie Kondo, pero es complementario para nada imprescindible.

    15. A book that lays out practical and logical methods for disposing clutter, The Art of Discarding , is a timely addition for a organised, if not a totally minimalist lifestyle All of us are attached to our belongings, parting with which induces a sense of nostalgia, not to mention a sense of loss Nagisa Tatsumi identifies simple and definitive approaches to rid ourselves of a sense of belonging that ultimately leads to the pernicious art of accumulating Using a compelling logic that entwines an o [...]

    16. As the cover and the opening quote so helpfully remind us, this is the book that inspired Marie Kondo to start her empire In my mind, that s the main similarity You won t be asked to thank your crap and there s no method that you MUST follow in order to not fail Instead, she says that you are bound to fail if you just adopt someone else s system and lifestyle So she provides 10 attitudes to help you get rid of things and 10 strategies for discarding Yes some of it is dated and some probably only [...]

    17. It was good there s a lot of really common sense advice in there that you may think, well, duh, of course, but I find that we re really adept at convincing ourselves of things that are far from common sense, because we resist change So if you really want to change the environment you live in, it may take some hard, common sense truths Some things felt redundant, and because it was written for a Japanese crowd, a number of years ago, not all the information was relevant to me, but I feel excited [...]

    18. This book is a practical guide to understanding why people have a hard time getting rid of things and offers many ways to change that attitude It is full of scenarios regarding every type of item clothes, papers, books, kitchen items etc I enjoyed part one best, which explains people s attitude toward items Part two is how to discard and part three is how to feel better about discarding Since the English translation mentions Marie Kondo on the cover, I will say that Tatsumi is very pragmatic in [...]

    19. Averci messo quasi un anno per leggerlo pu farvi capire quanto l abbia amato ironia Se in principio era Tatsumi, grazie a Marie Kondo allora per averci illustrato meglio questo mondo Il libro terribilmente noioso e prolisso anche a causa della ripetitivit e dalla schematizzazione fallimentare che si trova leggendo le pagine Il secondo libro della Kondo almeno aveva qualche illustrazione che riempivano le pagine, questo invece praticamente come il primo libro della Kondo senza illustrazioni e con [...]

    20. Nice short read, good as a companion to the life changing magic of tidying up but focused on the actual process and psychology of discarding Good for those who have weird and irrational reasons for holding onto things Even though I m not religious and hardly spiritual, I have to admit that I still assign certain objects a level of sacredness and they end up sitting there, haunting me for years, while I feel powerless to discard them.It s written in 2000 though, so expect references to floppy di [...]

    21. Good but lacking styleNagisa Tatsumi inspired other well known authors on the subject Its easy to see why I guess if you had not read about Minimalist choices before The book focusses solely on your possessions with a few references to the relief you may expect as you declutter I m glad to have read it, its gentle enough to suggest working at your own pace etc and though it seems to the offer time lines for certain tasks these are self led A quick read in three sessions Nothing too controversial [...]

    22. 4.4 5I really enjoyed reading this book It is simple and quirky in a Japanese way Simple ideas and even as a person who love to delclutter, I could find my thoughts or views being reflected in the examples she provides Of course, I was not happy with the slightly environment unfriendly ideas tone of the book I think once we discard, we have to focus on refusing stuff which the author does point out.

    23. After randomly picking this up in the library, I ve read it cover to cover and got a carload of stuff to go I think the translation is excellent, and the insights into the Japanese view of stuff are remarkably universal This author isn t a neat freak trying to make you use their system, they just ask you to re think your attitudes to possessions I feel smug that i got this from the library which is a great way to minimise clutter

    24. Short, bite size chapters on how discarding can help clean up your house Overall, I found this useful, and even though I do not have a problem with discarding, it is a useful reminder of the reasons behind it Readers of this book are advised by the author to take in what they can accept and try it out On the whole, it may seem a little extreme, but if you take the concepts of discarding and adapt into your life, it would probably be acceptable.

    25. Read it through audio versionGood humor, outdated though and you have to imagine the Japanese references to culture customs I d prefer to have it read in e book form since the audio version goes rather quickly over topics that have an impact on our mindset It s a wake up call and I m considering or reading the ebook to get structure in my head or to buy the ebook from Marie Kondo to have an updated perspective.

    26. Loved it A must read if you have a hard time getting rid of stuff and need to organize what you are keeping She presents common everyday situations that often cause us to not want to get rid of stuff and gives the why aspect to it I enjoyed reading it and have already been applying it s lessons to my own stuff.

    27. This is the book that inspired Marie Kondo It has the formulation of concept and ideas to get around how we tackle clutter and our material possessions However I felt Marie Kondo s two books are far helpful and relatable if one is really intending to have a life changing view of how we tidy and treat our possessions.

    28. This book is advertised as THE BOOK that inspired Marie Kondo to write hers I am shocked this book inspired anyone at all I guess maybe it is too Japanese to apply here but mostly I think it is just uninspired After the delight of reading goodbye things it was a rude wake up call not all Japanese organization books are worth the read.
