    Minimalism — it’s the lifestyle movement du jour. Fueled in part by the runaway success of Marie Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Art of Tidying Up, which has sold over three million copies, aspirations for a minimalist life are on the rise. Two years after its U.S. debut, the hardcover, Kindle, and Audible editions of Kondo’s manifesto still occupy the top sellers in the home Improvement & Design category on Amazon (the fourth and fifth most-popular titles are Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind, and Soul and Spark Joy, an illustrated follow-up to Kondo’s first book).
