Today I used the KonMari method to declutter my valuables. Because this was a fairly vague category I stuck to Marie Kondo’s examples of passports and credit cards etc. I managed to get rid of quite a few points cards, store cards etc that I was not using on a regular basis and I was able to let go of one purse which had been used for storage.
If you are using the KonMari method I would love to hear how you are getting on!

→MINIMALISM CLOSET DECLUTTER WITH STEPS TO MINIMIZE YOUR WARDROBE
STEP 1 – Lay out all your clothes a flat surface and yes that includes all the clothes you have in your closet as well as any clothes that you may have put away in drawers. You could put them on top of your bed or on the floor, depending on how much clothes you have, decide how big is the area that you’ll need to cover.
STEP 2 – Separate them into different sections. Keep all the shirts together in one section, all the pants together in another section and etc, create as many sections as you need. This will allow you to not miss any pieces when sorting out your clothes.
STEP 3 – In order to sort out you clothes, you will need to go through every piece in each section individually. While you are going through each piece, start to separate them into 3 new and separate sections. The first section will be the clothes that you use all the time, that fit you, that you feel confident in, that you like and that you want to keep. The second section will be the clothes that you have repeated, that occasionally wear, that still fits you and that you like but you are unsure if you want to keep it or get rid of it. The third section will be the clothes that you have not used in a long time, that you don’t plan to use anymore, that may not fit you anymore or that you no longer like and you have decided that you want to get rid of it.
STEP 4 – Go over the section that you are unsure if you want to keep and review each item. Ask yourself 3 questions. The first question is: Do you have any similar/repeated piece of clothing that you are already keeping? If you do, decide if it’s worth having it repeated. The second question to ask yourself is: How often have you used this piece of clothing in the last month and how often do you plan to use it on the next month? If you have not used it in the last month the chances are that you probably won’t use it in the next month either and you should definitely get rid of it. The third and final question to ask yourself is: How would you feel if you didn’t have this piece of clothing in your closet? If you feel indifferent or that you really like it but you would be okay without it then you should definitely get rid of it. If you feel that you’re maybe going to miss it because it has some sentimental value to you and you would like to keep it for a while longer. Or if you forgot that you had it and you would like to use it more going forward, then you should definitely keep it.
STEP 5 – Once you have sorted out all your clothes, repeat the entire process in a month or as often as you need. This will allow you to see if you still feel the same way about the clothes that you kept or to see if you would like to get rid of more pieces that was a bit hard for you to get rid of the first time you started this process. I know that for me since this is my second time doing this decluttering process with my clothes, it is definitely easier this time than the first time i did it. It gives me a chance to review my original decision and to decide if i made the right choice for me.

My name is Amanda Kuzak and I am a Professional Organizer in the San Francisco Bay Area. I help my clients make decisions regarding what they need and don’t need and over the weekend I gave myself a taste of my own medicine. This video talks about how difficult it can be to get rid of memorabilia items.
If you can’t find anything to wear it might be because your closet is completely unorganized. Let Jamila Payne of Stylish Life show you a great solution for decluttering closet and organizing your handbags.
I wanted to share my honest thoughts about the super popular book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo with you. I talk about how much reading this book has changed my life for the better. I have tried every type of decluttering advice, books, videos, you name it I’ve tried it. Already I am applying the same process to life and my job. It has a domino effect. It made me realise, ‘why would I have anything or anyone in my life that doesn’t bring me joy and happiness’?
It feels wonderful to let go of things without feeling guilt and knowing that at the end of this 6 month journey, I will be surrounded only by the things I cherish, enjoy and that sparks joy.
I hope my frank and spontaneous video is of some use to you and that you will buy the book and give Marie Kondos’ magic a go!

1. What drew you to minimalism?
2. How did you start the decluttering process?
3. Have you ever counted all your things? If so, how many things do you own?
4. What are your tips for dealing with the desire for more?
5. How do you deal with non-minimalists in your life?
6.Do you have any guilty pleasures where minimalism doesn’t apply?
