    Hacks: 10 Tips On How to Organize With Marie Kondo

    Image source: Netflix

    This week, I wanted to share some tips about Marie Kondo, who is an organizing expert who wrote the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.” According to, News in AU, they share some key tips from Kondo, who, “… believes the best way to choose whether or not to keep something is to hold each item in your hand and decide whether it sparks joy.”

    They also mention, an organizing hack that’s valuable is that “everything should have its place.” This means that if you know where it belongs, you can easily find it and put it back where it belongs. Below I will share 10 Hacks with you about what to do when organizing your home or living space.

    Kondo shares in her NETFLIX documentary, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” on how to fold clothing by rolling your clothing, and to see the front of the logo of the shirts instead on piling them on top of one another where you cannot see what is in your drawer (See the image below for an example).

    I encourage you to check her documentary out when you have a chance! It is very inspiring and many Youtubers have even done tutorials on spring cleaning using her hacks!

    The Marie Kondo Organizing Hacks: 

    1. Make sure everything has its own place. (Make your items accessible and easy to find and put back.) 

    2. Get rid of loose papers. 

    3. Don’t pile your things up.

    4. Only keep items that spark joy. 

    5. Focus on Your own items. (If you have a roomie, lead by example in being organized. Don’t worry about their clutter, focus on your items.) 

    1. De-clutter. (Try and go through your items regularly on what you should keep, throw out or donate.) 
    1. Use small boxes to place items in an organized fashion. 
    1. Use Kondo’s folding technique to save space and to easily find t-shirts. 
    1. Be a minimalist. (I am inspired to clean out my place and keep only the things that I need or that sparks joy.) 
    1. Appreciate your items and be grateful. (Don’t throw out anything you do not want to, but make sure you are cleaning with the joy technique/ tip in mind).
