Many questions about specifics that people had after reading the first book are answered in this one, but the main points remain the same. There’s a new section (and a confession!) on photos and dealing with digital photos. There’s tons more animism haha. And lots of insight into the as it’s applied!

  1. rather that speak to things…I like to speak to my heavenly Father and thank Him for having provided these things for me. Because He is really all I need…but He loves to bless me…I can be grateful for things and I can express this. I really do not want to have a home filled with idols…just things that I need and give me joy and can thank God for. I do really like Marie Kondo…she is adorable and is meeting a need in lots of lives. For me…it is always God who provides…things have no power to give happiness in themsleves…I am grateful to God for her work!

  2. Thank you so much for the detail comments about this book. I read the first book only and I enjoyed it I have not read the second book yet I'm still going through the process I'm on the papers right now but I find myself keep going back over clothes and jewelry and books and so forth as I'm going I still keep finding things it's kind of funny and I still keep finding papers as I go to the house. I considered myself a minimalist but after finding more and more things I'm thinking maybe not so much. Funny…ha

  3. hi, I really appreciated this video, thank you. But there is one thing I suggest you to look up: minimalism. I've never heard of a minimalist suffering for this planet and I watch a lot of videos from different minimalists. I consider myself a minimalist, I don't suffer, since I discovered minimalism I've become way happier and improved my life and my way of thinking so much. you don't have to deprive yourself in order to be a minimalist. it all starts with getting rid of what you don't need and then it changes your whole life, it is mostly a mental thing. I suggest everyone to look it up, it is worthy. (sorry if I made mistakes, I'm italian)

  4. I agree with discard first. One issue if you don't is that you end up keeping stuff you shouldn't because you have a home for it! I also like thanking things before you send them off. It makes you feel less bad for getting rid of things you maybe could have kept longer (weren't broken, were a gift, etc.). Thanks for a great review!

  5. I appreciate your insights. I only listened to her first book (Yay for audiobooks on YT) and have been considering buying it ftom our Costco ($10). Then I started hearing about "Spark Joy" and that delayed my purchase. I just assume somewhere along the line a version will come out with both books for one price or even a third book published which just binds the two together. Ah well, creative procrastination will never cease! You do a thorough job here and I liked the amount of detail. Thanks!

  6. oh, and I wanted to mention that I've been replacing "crap" utensils with new one's and our Dollarama in Canada carries the Betty Crocker line which is good quality and mostly red….hopefully you have a Dollarama that has the same and you can check it out :)
