Marie Kondo v. Tsundoku: Competing Japanese Philosophies on Whether to Keep or Discard Unread Books

By now we've all heard of Marie Kondo, the Japanese home-organization guru whose book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up became an international bestseller in 2011. Her advice about how to straighten up the home, branded the "KonMari" method, has more recently landed her that brass ring of early 21st-century fame, her own Netflix series.

24 Things That Will Help You Keep Your New Year's Resolutions

These products will practically guarantee you success. Maybe this is just a me thing (read: a non-planner thing) but more than once I've made a grand and noble new year's resolution only to be handicapped in the first month because I don't have the right equipment. Like, one year I resolved to start running again, but I didn't realize my old running shoes were too busted. Because I hadn't budgeted for new running shoes, I couldn't run in the first couple of weeks of the year or work towards my ...

10 Longevity Tips from Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara, Japan’s 105-Year-Old Longevity Expert

Photo by Karsten Thormaehlen, via Wikimedia Commons Robert Browning’s poem “Abt Vogler” imagines composer Georg Joseph Vogler as an old man reflecting on his diminishing powers and the likelihood that his life’s work would not survive in the public’s memory. Let us overlook the fact that Vogler was 65 when he died, or that Browning, who lived to 77, was 52 when he composed the poem. What’s most striking these days is its significance to longevity expert, physician, and chairman emeritus of St. ...

9 Tips for Building a Wardrobe in College and Beyond, According to my Mom

Mom knows best -- especially when it comes to fashion! As you may know, I am the writer for the "Ask CF" column here at College Fashion. However, I'd be lying if I said that I always have the answers to every fashion conundrum. In fact, to this day, I consider my mom Joanne (here's her and I) to be the ultimate fashion expert. I can thank her for teaching me just about everything that I know about fashion today.  Having said that, it only made sense that I share some of my mom's style wisdom wi...

How to Stay Productive Over the Summer

Because sometimes it's hard to do the things we want to do. Summer in college is different than summer at any other time in your life. In high school, the summer is for fun, and maybe summer jobs existing only to pay for movie tickets and ice cream sandwiches. After college...well, let's just say summer stops being more than just another season. But in college, summers are complicated. We have jobs to pay for rent, internships to get jobs, summer classes so we can finish school on time...and on...

8 Luxe Self-Care Items to Treat Yo Self With

How to do the self-care one-two punch. I'm not going to lie to you guys, this last week has been tough for me. The husdude and I are in the middle of moving and adulting in ways we have never adulted before, plus we both got sick this week. Between work, packing, getting sick, and adulting, I feel like I've barely had time to sleep, let alone do the self-care thing. Which, I guess, is why it's been on my brain all week. I've written about self-care before, but one of my favorite (and adult-y) w...

Some Thoughts on Transitioning to Digital Minimalism

A Minimalist Transition Earlier this week, I posted some thoughts on digital minimalism: the idea that using less technology, but using what you do use better, is the key to cultivating meaning in a noisy world. I want to pull on this thread some more. One question that seems particularly relevant is the process of shifting into this lifestyle. It seems to me that there are two major approaches that might work: subtractive and additive… The subtractive approach could also be called the Marie Ko...

Organization Guru Marie Kondo’s Tips for Dealing with Your Massive Piles of Unread Books (or What They Call in Japan “Tsundoku”)

“Eats, Shoots, and Leaves is Britain’s number-one best seller at the moment, and it’s about punctuation, and no, I don’t get it either,” writes Nick Hornby in his February 2004 “Stuff I’ve Been Reading” column for the Believer. What explains how Lynne Truss’ guide to the proper use of commas, semicolons, and dashes became such a publishing phenomenon those thirteen holiday seasons ago? Hornby theorizes that everyone had someone in mind to give a copy, whether a punctuation pedant themsel...

Change Your Life! Learn the Japanese Art of Decluttering, Organizing & Tidying Things Up

Custom dictates that you should observe July 4th—America’s Independence Day—outdoors, eating hot dogs, drinking beer, waving tiny flags on Main Street, and viewing fireworks.

An Eye-Popping Collection of 400+ Japanese Matchbox Covers: From 1920 through the 1940s

Phillumeny – the practice of collecting matchboxes – strikes me as a fun and practical hobby. As a child, I was fascinated with the contents of a large glass vase my grandparents had dedicated to this pursuit. Their collection was an ersatz record of all the hotels and nightclubs they had apparently visited before transforming into a dowdy older couple who enjoyed rocking in matching Bicentennial themed chairs, monitoring their bird feeder. As any serious phillumenist will tell you, one nee...
