I am all about learning how to declutter my home and lifeâ€“yes I think they can be related! I havenâ€™t tried and stuck with any one method, so I was excited to see that Ms. Kondo advocates a completely different method than most.From the description:
Japanese organizational consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, youâ€™ll never have to do it again. Whereas most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, the KonMari Methodâ€™s category-by-category, all-at-once prescription leads to lasting results. With detailed guidance for every type of item in the household, this quirky little manual from Japanâ€™s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help readers clear their clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy homeâ€“and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.I havenâ€™t had the time (or motivation) to completely try this out, but the method certainly seems promising and I am looking forward to some fall cleaning and deeper decluttering for a more minimalist home. While Iâ€™m not sure all of her ideas will translate for us, she does have some great ideas for things like folding clothes, having a different mindset about belongings and decluttering, etc.
