Maybe it’s my understanding of Kondo that’s wrong, but she’s just saying “keep the stuff of yours you want to keep and don’t keep the stuff you don’t.” She doesn’t care what you keep. She doesn’t care if you keep every single book in your home. Her method is a way for those of us who confuse obligation with want to sort out our preferences. I did a full Kondo and many of my estate sale finds (treasures) are still safe with me, as are my beloved books. But the stuff I always looked at and thought “I can’t get rid of it, I spent too much money on it” or “it might fit someday” or “I should like this, I just don’t” are no longer with me.

It would be nice if we could stop using her name as shorthand for getting rid of stuff indiscriminately, because that’s the opposite of her point.
