Give Yourself A Fresh Start With Marie Kondo's Top Decluttering Tips
Organizing consultant, author, and TV host Marie Kondo advises honoring emotional attachments to belongings while cutting out excess and sticking to your organizational goals.
Visualize your ideal space with your specific goals in mind. Break down the steps needed to bring your space to life, and keep a checklist to stay on track with your tasks.
"In the KonMari Method, we tidy by category and not by location," she shares. Decluttering by item category instead of by room or area minimizes pauses and distractions.
Start with clothes, then books, papers, and miscellaneous items, ending with sentimental pieces. This approach keeps items together and prevents misplacing them.
