How the KonMari Method Changed My Life

Published by:


To kick of a new series of the books that have “changed my life,” I’m starting with Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. In this week’s video I share how I went through the categories she suggests as part of her “KonMari Method” as well as how I’m making it work even now after I’m done reading the book.

BOOK: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo http://amzn.to/1OQVASk

Decluttering/ Organizing Tips – The KonMari Method Overview

o Clean/organize everything at once vs in small increments. When you do it at once there will be a dramatic difference that you will feel and it will be life changing
o This will end the cycle of clutter
o I think the perfect time to do this is if you’re moving or over a long weekend

o Most important aspect of tiding is discarding. More stuff is more stress in our lives and the reason things constantly get messy is because we have too much stuff

TIDY BY CATEGORY vs by room/area
o The reason for this is that we have one type of item in multiple locations and if you miss items you will not get everything repeat the same patterns
o Her categories are: clothes, books, papers, komono (miscellaneous), mementos

o Start the process by gathering every item from category you own and put it into a big pile
o Only keep items that spark joy – hold it and feel your reaction to it

HOW TO ORGANIZE – Clothing Organization
o Most clothing should be folded versus hung up – it saves space and also forces you to have more interaction with each item
o How to fold clothes:
• Fold lengthwise towards center to make a long rectangle
• Fold the short ends together and continue until the height matches the drawer height
• Instead of storing them on top of each other, stack them! This way you can see every item and it saves space
o Hanging items
• Hang items in same category side by side, dress section, jacket section, etc
• Heavy items on left going to lighter items on the right
• Heavy means most length and heavier fabrics and dark in color
o Seasonal clothes
• She doesn’t believe in seasonal clothes – all items should be kept out. This prevents hoarding clothes

Top I’m wearing – American Apparel
Leggings – Lululemon
Any other questions please ask in the comments 🙂
Let me know if you’d like me to organize other categories of items from the book!

Spark Joy | KonMari Method | CLOTHES Gathering | Declutter with Marie Kondo |

Published by:


Spark Joy is the feeling I am attempting to accomplish by using the KonMari Method of tidying up. The KonMari Method is simple; keep what you love, and decide where to store it, thats the whole idea.
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo is the book I am using/reviewing in this de-cluttering process. The KonMari Method is widely used today in regards to organization. Spark Joy today by only keeping those Items you LOVE, and focusing on that instead of what you have to get rid of.

10 PAPER Decluttering Tips from ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up’ + HOME OFFICE REVEAL

Published by:


Start the new year with less clutter!: “50 inspiring tidying tips from Marie Kondo’s Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class”
➨ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J52oE5ynaMs

What’s after clothes and books? PAPER! Here are 10 Decluttering Tips from Marie Kondo’s best-selling ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up’ to help you discard all those old documents that have been dragging you down! The paperless home office is here (well, almost)! You won’t want to miss my beautiful binders!

I gave a shout out to Alejandra.tv, whose colorful binder organization video inspired me!

Here are the 10 points I covered in this video:

1. Discard (almost) all papers, using the KonMari method (gather all documents in entire home together, then hold each one and ask if it sparks joy to decide to keep or donate/recycle/discard).

2. Stick to the category: Paper!

3. Put nostalgic items and photos aside for when you go through those items in the final KonMari decluttering category.

4. Avoid complex filing systems.

5. Don’t shop for containers; discard clutter first, then use what you have to store what sparks joy. She particularly likes shoe boxes and Apple product boxes.

6. Use binders for frequently used items.

7. Discard lecture materials. Paradox: “Because we hang on to such materials, we fail to put what we learn into practice.”

8. Thoughts on processing credit card statements, warranties, checkbooks, greeting cards, pay slips.

9. Discard cancelled checks. Plus: My cancelled check secret for motivating myself as an entrepreneur/freelancer.

10. By handling each item, you process your past.

Check out my whole KonMari series! The magic is real (no, I’m not a professional organizer, I’m just a working musician/mom/writer who spends far too much time cleaning).
