"Konmari" is actually more of a "who." It's Marie Kondo's method, a Japanese tidying consultant and author of the book, The Magical Art of Tidying. In her book, she explains her method of tidying - a system of tidying by category, and keeping only things that "spark joy."
what is konmari?
how to konmari
Think about your ideal life. If you could live in your perfect space, what would it be? How would it feel? Think of colors, textures, moods. Be specific.
Get familiar with, “What sparks joy?”
Tidy by category:
Put every piece of clothing you own into one big pile.
Let go of those things that don’t feed into your future. What do you want to bring with you as you organize your new life?
Live your new tidy life.
So, it’s that simple! And not so simple. But that’s why I created this blog.
We are all different. We all approach our “things” differently, but we are all so identical in our desire to live a joyful life. We all want to feel comfortable and confident in our homes, and in our ability to maintain our homes and our lives. But it can be a struggle. We all struggle to keep things clean, and tidy, and simple. That’s where KonMari comes in.
Where to start
It’s up to you where to begin, but I recommend starting with one of these two:
