I read the Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo a couple years and it really spoke to me and I devoured everything I could on the subject. I joined message boards (there are tons of them on Facebook) and banned together with other people who want to declutter and live a more simple life.
My house is nowhere near being finished, but I have done a lot following the book and even through some other eCourses that take a more minimalistic approach. My goal is have less stuff, so I can spend more time enjoying my family and less time cleaning up clutter.
I love how having less stuff to manage has reduced the stress level in my home and I’m spending less and less time dealing with everything. So, for the sake of this….I’m sticking with KonMari inspired tips and tricks to help YOU get started in your own home.
First things first, I can’t stress highly enough…you need to get a copy of the book. Buy, borrow, check out from the library, or download an eReader version and read it. It’s a quick read, promise. I also want to say, there are some things in the book that may seem a little odd or strange, just remember that this book was originally written in Japanese and the culture in Japan is a lot different than the culture here in the US.

This is such an inspiration for the new year! I have heard of the kon mari method, and am going to give it a try for 2018.

I am in the process of decluttering and find that it really reduces my stress and I’m able to focus so much better. I’ve heard a little bit about this method so I definitely will have to learn more.

Thanks so much for sharing. I love to declutter and rid of things I no longer need. Not only does it relieve stress but it makes your home look so much nicer. Your home decor pops out more and looks purposeful instead of part of the clutter.
