World-renowned tidying expert Marie Kondo once said “Ultimate secret of success is this: If you tidy up in one shot, rather than little by little, you can dramatically change your mindset.” The newest Netflix Original Series entitled “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” became an online buzz for her eye-opening KonMari method – teaching you how to declutter and to keep only the things that “spark joy” in your life.

Each of her episodes have different stories but they all have a common feeling – happiness. We’ve rounded up easy tricks for you to follow the KonMari method and to help you ask yourself which items from every corner of your home really spark your joy. 

Arrange your things by category

The KonMari method gives prime importance to arranging things by category. In order, this would be clothes first, then books, papers, komono (miscellaneous), and lastly, mementos. It’s better to arrange your things if you categorize it. Create a big pile of your items in one place first before you start fixing them all (e.g. all of your clothes should be piled in one area).

Go in order and subcategorize

Break a category into subcategories as necessary. For instance, after piling all your clothes, you can subcategorize: tops, bottoms, socks, etc. For a more organized look, you can shop for storage items that will keep your place look simple and have a relaxing vibe to it.

Keep only those things that spark joy.

While organizing your living space, pick things up one by one and assess if the item really stays. Ask yourself, “does this spark joy to me?” If the answer is yes, it stays. Here are some of the items that you can consider an inspiration or joy to you.

Recycle/Repurpose

If you know a certain item in your home is still in good condition, you can be able to use it as another home decor or recycle it with a new item that you are sure to use. If you decide to discard some of your clothes, H&M and Uniqlo have donation boxes for you to put your clothes and happily share them to those in need.

Organize your space thoroughly and completely

In this step, you are just deciding where to put something or where to store it. As Marie Kondo put it: “I have only two rules: store all items of the same type in the same place and don’t scatter storage space.”

The KonMari method only requires one simple rule: COMMIT YOURSELF TO TIDYING UP THINGS ALL AT ONCE. It may look draining and tiring to fix all your stuff at once but it really works! Simply visualize what your home will look like after successfully decluttering and by keeping just the things that make you happy.

It’s not too late for you to welcome 2019 with a decluttered home and a joyful vibe. Always remember to trust the process and you’ll find fun in creating a new energy to you the KonMari way.
