In this video, I compare Marie Kondo’s two books, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying and Spark Joy, and point out what you might have missed if you went straight to the Tidying Up tv show on Netflix.
My Top KonMari Tips
Go through every item in your home, in order, by category. I drew a KonMari map in my Passion Planner Road Map to keep track of all the sub-categories.null
Discard AND tidy items by category.
Gather everything from one category together in one pile to decide what to discard. Then, when you’re establishing permanent homes for your possessions, also tidy them away by category. It’s worth investing the time to tidy things in a way that makes sense, so that you save time searching for things.
Tidy by feeling. Don’t use your head.
Choose what to keep based on what sparks joy rather than what you ‘might need’. Resist the temptation to pick up books and read the information in them.
Watch the video for a tiny tour of my KonMari wardrobe (all my clothes fit in one drawer – pretty much!).
