Find Joy in the KonMari Method
Looking to reorganize? Marie Kondo is known for “finding joy” with useful tidying, cleaning, and organization.
What is the KonMari Method? According to Marie Kondo, one should envision a clean and happy space. With this image, you should then create a plan of what “category” or “space” that you would like to tackle. Then, create piles of items that do, or do not, “spark joy.” What makes you truly happy? Then, fold and/or stow your items away. Watch Marie Kondo’s folding tips here—they’re life-changing.
You may donate or sell all items that no longer bring you joy.
