Professional organizer Marie Kondo has seemingly taken over the world — or at least the closet of someone you know — in the past year. Her bestselling book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” is 213 compelling pages about, you guessed it, the art of tidying.

In Kondo’s newest book, “Spark Joy, ” she breaks down her process of eliminating items that don’t( you guessed it again) trigger exhilaration, and expertly organizing and storing ones that do. If “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” was “Tidying 101, ” “Spark Joy” is the ultimate master class in how to perform a systematic room-by-room overhaul. But lest you think you don’t require a guide for cleaning your house, Kondo’s signature KonMari method might persuade you otherwise especially because heeding her organizational advice can potentially aid in helping you stay slim. It all starts with an orderly kitchen.
