KonMari Method: The Kitchen, Part 1

Published by:


After reading “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo, I have been inspired to declutter and simplify our home. My husband and I have found value and importance in living a minimalist lifestyle and we are making changes in our lives everyday to embrace this new way of living.

In this video I share with you what our kitchen looked like before I implemented the KonMari method, as well as all of the kitchen items I am getting rid of.

Next week, I will be posting Part 2 which will show our newly simplified and organized kitchen.

Thanks for watching!

Hi friends! 🙂

This is my closet at the moment. I’m still working on saying goodbye to a few things and trying to figure out how to organize it the best way possible with the space and layout that I currently have. Minimalism is a journey for all of us and I can only move forward from here, which is great. I’m very proud of myself and the HUGE progress I have made! 🙂

I am entering the magical world of minimalism and have applied the basic principles to our toy collection too. With Christmas around the corner I’m sure I’ll have to rethink some areas and evaluate the favorite toys – but that is the name of the game.

About Me:

I’m a stay at home mom to two girls — a toddler and a baby. I breastfeed, cloth diaper, practice elimination communication (as a way to not clean poop), and shop at Dollar Tree a little too often. I think living with less is the best way to feel like you have more; to feed your soul; to more easily seek deeper meaning in life; to be happier. See how that conflicts with Dollar Tree — it’s complicated people. I believe a clear countertop can lead to a clear mind — really. I have a love hate relationship with my naturally curly hair. I used to hate crafting and had more fails than wins, but I’ve found a way to enjoy it and look forward to making things with my hands. I’m a former public school teacher who is considering homeschooling — don’t tell my colleagues. I believe children should experience education, not simply “get” one. I sometimes struggle to find my purpose. I forget to enjoy the journey and rather focus on the outcome. I believe you can better yourself and strengthen your mind and I want to share my process, experiences, and thoughts as a way to continue to grow. I seek deeper meaning (but dang — sometimes I need a break from that too and just want to watch Nacho Libre and have a good laugh) and conversation but don’t have people to converse with — so join me, will you?

With Organization Comes Clarity: Lifestyle Practice

Published by:


Simple Instructions:

1. Each day, organize or clean up one space in your life.
2. The space can be physical, like a desk, closet, or countertop, or it can be virtual, like your email inbox or Evernote notebooks.
3. You may also pick a large project, like a closet or a garage, and tackle a small part of it for at least 10 minutes each day.
4. The space does not need to be large and it need not take long (not even 10 minutes) to clear up.

Why Is This Practice Important?

There are lots of small things we let stand in the way of making the big moves in life. It helps a lot to have clarity around you when you’re making important choices.

Cluttered physical, virtual, and even mental spaces provide unnecessary obstacles to doing what matters to you. Feeling like you’re surrounded by a mess or chaos can keep you in “putting out fires” mode — the feeling that the little things right in front of you are stopping you from starting the important things.

When your spaces are clear, new paths can open up. Waking up or living in an uncluttered reality can provide a sense of calm and leave room for creativity and productive action to flow.
