TRANSFORM YOUR HOME TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE
“The KonMari Method is not a mere set of rules on how to sort, organize, and put things away. It is a guide to acquiring the right mindset for creating order and becoming a tidy person.” – Marie Kondo
If you are considering de-cluttering your home you have probably already read many studies, tried several techniques and spend as substantial amount of money on storage bins and labels. Those storage ‘solutions’ are really just prisons within which to bury possessions that don’t serve a positive purpose.
The decision to pursue KonMari extends far beyond tidying your home. It often opens the door for greater self-discovery and fulfilment. “In essence, tidying ought to be the act of restoring balance among people, their possessions, and the house they live in” – the life changing magic of tidying up.
When you tidy your space completely, you transform the scenery. The change is so profound that you feel as if you are living in a totally different world. This deeply affects your mind and inspires a strong aversion to reverting.
Sort by category, in the correct order, and keep only those things that inspire joy. Do this thoroughly and quickly, all in one go. If you follow this advice, you will dramatically reduce the volume of things you own, experience an exhilaration you have never known before, and gain confidence in your life.
- Komono (Miscellaneous) – Kitchen, bathroom, general office, cleaning items, décor, etc.
*Garage is typically an additional category separate from the home.
IT’S NOT DISCARDING — IT’S KEEPING WHAT YOU LOVE
This is an important difference between the KonMari method and other decluttering methods. The method focuses on what you are keeping instead of what you are discarding. So, it’s less about what’s leaving your life and more about what’s staying to bring you daily joy.
