The KonMari Method™
The KonMari Method™ was developed by the best selling author and organizing consultant Marie Kondo. She details her Japanese art of decluttering and organizing in her two books, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy. Her philosphy is to contribute to a joy-sparking world through tidying.
"Our goal in tidying should be
to create a living environment
filled with the things we love."
Spark Joy, Marie Kondo
The KonMari Method™ is unlike other organizing methods in that you tidy belongings by category, not by location. You also tidy each category in a specific order all at once, instead of discarding little by little. Organizing in this way allows you to recognize how much you own and to change your mindset. To put your house in order is considered a special event; a Tidying Festival that only needs to be done once. When you have determined what Sparks Joy for you and discarded the rest, you will simplify your life and have a living space that you appreciate.
