    How to Declutter and Tidy Up Your Space

    cmykhomesmariekondomillcopy25826476118_t755_hbbcb1425261f4e2a876acd57c3d8b7f0f34e38aaMarie Kondo is a professional, world-famous decluttering consultant and the author of a best-selling book entitled The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing and her most recent release, Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up.

    Below I am going to review some of her tips and advice for cleaning your room, closet or desk.

    The way Kondo cleans and organizes is called the “KonMari” method, which is just a term she created pertaining to her style of cleaning. The method sorts by category, not location. The next step you do is organize it pile by pile.

    The steps are very simple and come from Kondo herself, when she did an interview video for a website called The Pool on their official YouTube Channel. (See the video below for inspiration!) The site from the UK is a platform for women founded by Sam Baker and Lauren Laverne on fashion, beauty, news and more!

    Watch Marie Kondo on How to Tidy Up on the UK’s The Pool site.



    4 Steps to Clean Your Space, Inspired by Marie Kondo

    Step 1 – Decide What You Want From Your Space: Think efficiency, focus, inspiration, joy, cleanliness, organization and so on.

    Step 2 – Divide Your Items Into Categories: For example, if you are cleaning and decluttering your desk, then put them into different sections such as books, papers and sentimental items.

    Step 3 – Decide What Sparks Joy: What inspires you, what catches your eye, what will help you focus or make you happy in your space? Displaying items that spark joy will help you be more content in the space you’ve cleaned.

    Step 4 – Thank and Disregard: Dispose of any junk items or things that you’re no longer using by donating or getting rid of them. This may even mean you need to throw things away…yes, painful for some people, but sometimes it is necessary. Thank the Lord you had the items and they were things that you used in life, but if they’re not adding to your joy or space, then you can release them to someone else or move on from the items or clutter.
