Everywhere I go I overhear conversations about the "Marie Kondo" effect at the moment 💫
Netflix’s new series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo shares her KonMari method, and it is changing people’s lives.
Following her checklist:
• Komono (miscellaneous items)
• Sentimental items
She encourages people to: Be grateful for your items, Know the difference between sentimental and nostalgia, Fold clothes in a dresser and Visualize your new organized life.
The show is based on her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, where she highlights: the order in which you tidy up is important.
"Start with clothes, then move on to books, papers, komono (miscellany), and finally things with sentimental value,” writes Kondo. “If you reduce what you own in this order, your work will proceed with surprising ease. By starting with the easy things first and leaving the hardest for last, you can gradually hone your decision-making skills, so that by the end it seems simple.” .
