Official Synopsis

Are you stressed out, overbooked, and underwhelmed by life? Fed up with pleasing everyone else before you please yourself? It’s time to stop giving a f*ck.

This brilliant, hilarious, and practical parody of Marie Kondo’s bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up explains how to rid yourself of unwanted obligations, shame, and guilt–and give your f*cks instead to people and things that make you happy.

The easy-to-use, two-step NotSorry Method for mental decluttering will help you unleash the power of not giving a f*ck about:

Family drama
Having a “bikini body”
Co-workers’ opinions, pets, and children
And other bullsh*t! And it will free you to spend your time, energy, and money on the things that really matter. So what are you waiting for? Stop giving a f*ck and start living your best life today!

My Thoughts/Summary

This is probably going to be a very short review, but I will say this book really surprised me. I’m a Hufflepuff primary, (if you haven’t heard about primary and secondary houses guys, it’ll change your life. Click here.) I do really genuinely care about most people and whether or not people like me. I know it’s something that I really need to break. People-pleasing is good in some circumstances but not in others. This book really gave me a great perception on how I can do that without putting myself on the back burner.

I know the title seems harsh, but Knight’s whole “method” actually involves not being an asshole. Most of her idea is that you have a limited amount of fucks that you can give, and you have a budget of them. You can’t give a fuck about everything, and that’s okay. So when you decide to give a fuck about something, you’ve removed a fuck from your budget, so that’s one less thing you can give a fuck about. In a very funny way, she really taught me about prioritizing who and what I invest energy in, since there’s not enough of me to give my energy to everything.
