Millions of Americans are hooked on Marie Kondo and her tidying up principles she explains in her popular Netflix show and in her book, Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. If you are clamoring to rid your home of items you no longer need, here are a few tips from the book:
- Tackle categories, not rooms
- Respect your belongings
- Nostalgia is not your friend
- Purging feels good
- Fold, don’t hang
- Learn the proper fold
- Fall in love with your closet
- Rediscover your style
Does it spark joy? According to The KonMari Method™, cherish the items that spark joy, but if something isn’t sparking that joy in your life, then thank it for its service and let it go. Learn more.
