  1. Why throw away books? You can look for places to donate them if their in good condition. It might be tedious compared to just throwing them away but someone might enjoy what you dont want. It worked for me when I received books friends didn't want or were free to take from the public library.

  2. I watched it but the only thing it helped me with was my drawers. I got rid of alot of things after I had kids but I can't just get rid of things that don't spark joy or I'd end up getting rid of all my furniture and other necessities that make life comfortable ..

  3. Folding upright was being used in asian culture since most homes are smaller in Asia and makes more room. Growing up my mom was folding our clothes upright.

    No one really knows who invented it, people had been doing it for a long time ☺️

  4. Ever since clothes have been put into draws there have been people who put them in up right, nobody invented it it's just a natural thing to do 😂 can't believe this lady is claiming it as her idea.

  5. Koopersmith claiming she invented the upright folding method is an idiot. Folding clothes goes way back in history; Kondo didn't invent it either. She just presents it as the best method for space saving.

  6. That is hilarious that Linda Koopersmith thinks she invented the upright fold ‘method’. She must think that the rest of the human population present and past are extremely unimaginative if she thought no one had ever done that before. 🤣

  7. How STUPID is that woman who claims to have "invented" the folding method? Folding kimonos, etc. has been part of the Eastern culture since their inception! Marie Kondo is so lovely she deserves her success, and long may it continue.
