I found the second book to be more practical and useful than the first. It’s called “Spark Joy: an illustrated masterclass…”. I have pared down a lot in the past number of years, mostly letting go of books. I also use Flylady’s strategies a lot. Kondo philosophy is binge-based, Flylady is slow and steady.
