☁ THINGS ☁

Big Takeaways

– Don’t keeps books just because you might read them ‘sometimes’. ‘Sometimes’ means ‘Never’

– Divide books in to General, Practical, Visual and Magazines

– The moment you first encounter a book is the right time to read it

– When you’re decluttering papers, the rule of thumb is ‘Discard everything’

– Everything, that is, that doesn’t fall in the the categories of: Currently in use, Needed for a limited time or Must be kept indefinitely.

– All papers should be kept in the one spot in the house

– I love you heaps, thanks for watching xoxoxoox

KonMari Series #6 Komono: CDs & DVDs

Published by:

1474419091_hqdefault.jpg



Though not my most anticipated task of the KonMari process, sorting through our DVD collection was easy and I was able to purge a lot! CDs were all donated last year, so unfortunately I don’t have that to share, but the process would be the same as the DVDs.

Next video: Komono – Skin Care Products

The Series:
Follow along, even better, join me, as I complete the KonMari method of tidying and organizing our entire home. With three children age four and under, a dog, and a husband this would normally be a seemingly impossible undertaking, yet with insightful know-how of best-selling author Marie Kondo I know it will be manageable and even better, exciting and life changing.

This series will take you through the entire method described and explained in Kondo’s book titled, ‘The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up” through my vlog as I go!

**New videos will be posted, minimally, once a week as I complete the method step-by-step. I will be “real”, honest and forthcoming with how I am fairing out.

I’d love for you to join me in this journey – it will be fun and motivating. All positive, constructive and well-intended comments are welcome in the spirit of helping myself and others during this series! I would love your input, suggestions, feedback – including how I’m organizing this series.

Cheers to better, more organized days ahead!
