I have gotten a lot off of Amazon. Like a bunch of cheap cat toys. A screen for my deck door. A comforting book. The world's best chocolate covered cherries. My favorite coffee. This fur throw to go on this chair. And this playpen/sleeper for my been nephew. Amazon's so good.

Okay so I didn't read the book, but I listened to a podcast where these women try to live by self help books for 2 weeks and they did one on Hygge. I do really enjoy that cozy Christmasy feeling so when it's cold and dark I try to reframe my thinking to embrace the winter.

I love The Little Book of Hygge - it's a fun read!

You might also like The Cozy Life. It is very similar.

I also enjoyed The Nordic Theory of Everything. It's not about hygge particularly. It's more about relationships and Danish culture/lifestyles, but it's a nice read.

And this might be an odd recommendation, but I love to read children's books like [The Christmas Wish] (, The Polar Express, and The Snowman - and not just at Christmastime! They're a great way to spend 15 minutes relaxing by the window on a cool, rainy evening.

Happy reading!

Can I just say that shipping prices factor into my online purchasing decisions a ridiculous amount? I have a small but flexible spending "fun" budget and the ability to browse things online at work, so I impulse bought The Little Book Of Hygge yesterday without a second though (free shipping thanks amazon) and yet, despite the fact I've revisited the website probably 7 times in the last 4 days and absolutely am in love with these mittens (I have a pair in red that are the best winter accessory I own except they don't match anything I own dang it) from the style to the lining to the colors, the shipping is $12 and I just can't do it. I can't. Its too much.
basically shipping costs have kept me from going over budget many a time. Its a love hate relationship I guess

The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living

Listened to it in an afternoon and it inspired me to reflect on what actually makes me happy- warm spaces, quality time with friends, a good chair. Could incorporate many of these for very cheap or for nothing at all. (In fact, showing how much money you spend and/or spending a lot is frowned upon!)

I listened via OverDrive, making it free. However, I would probably even buy this if I found a good used deal.

>The only reason to do a literal tiny house is to look cool doing it, and let everyone know this is a choice and you're not really a poor person as a trailer implies. They still care about what others think of them! They just pretend to be free from mindlessly following societal norms.

This is just an assumption on your part. Many people choose a minimalistic lifestyle not to go against the grain or virtue signal but to be live more conscientiously and simply. Go on and hate the eco-hipsters all you want but living space and limited real estate and soaring rent is going to be a huge problem in the future and many people are choosing to preempt this by rejecting the accoutrements of the American Dream (to wit: comfortable single family home with a lawn, white picket fence, and golden retriever) and choosing instead to live within or beneath their means.

I agree with the author that Kondo's success is partly due to her "Oriental allure" (really, what did you expect from the average consumer?), but that's such a superficial reading of the total scope of her success and message (not to mention, simple living is a universal growing trend). I would argue that Kondo in fact deserves a lot of credit for embodying a quirky telegenic personality (without it, no Netflix show) and coming up with a very clever, easy-to-remember heuristic to inspire and persuade the hard-sell of minimalism in the face of consumerism gone wild: "if it doesn't spark joy in your life, trash it".

That's great marketing, period.

>My wise maid will forgo soft talk of joy, and use instead a harder, plain-speaking language to assess all that stuff: does it still have use in it?

This is precisely why the author is a philosopher and not a best-selling author or beloved TV personality. It's also probably why they can't see past the absurdity of their own argument, especially reducing Kondo to a Mr. Miyagi stereotype.

She sounds very sweet, possibly a little hippie-esq? I highly suggest a pretty houseplant, some quality candles or even (if I may be so bold) the Little Book of Hygge -link below. It's a great little coffee table book on the art of relaxing in your space, was a huge hit and very popular.

Yes & yes! For supporting arguments, read this book.
