I hope this decluttering doesn't apply to the typical gardeners', permies' etc. 'boneyard' aka 'junk corner' where all the odds and ends that might be useful (and usually are) for something or other.

Another negative aspect on the book, which may simply be a result of poor translation, is that Ms. Kondo frequently seems to advise that what you don't want anymore should be thrown out. Into the garbage.
This made me complain out loud a few times while reading the book, and I do wonder if it was intended or not, because surely the translator would of asked if she meant "into the trash" versus "recycling" or "put it in the donation box" - these are surely different things in Japanese as well as in English!
