KonMari Method

April 11, 2019

If you have never heard of “The KonMari Method” before, you’re not alone. Upon conducting
some research into this so-called tidying up method, I found out extremely useful information!
The KonMari Method “encourages tidying by category – not by location – beginning with
clothes, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally,
sentimental items. Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no
longer spark joy” (konmari.com).
Japanese tidying expert Marie Kondo has brought this form of minimalism and de-cluttering to
the United States, where we pride ourselves how much “stuff” we all seem to have. The
KonMari Method is a no-excuses elimination method; the point of it all is that if there is an item
that you are holding on to, but you are not deeply in love with, “it has no business in your home”
(goop.com). The endgame is not to discard or donate as much as possible, but to make sure that
whatever items you choose to hold on to truly make you happy and spark a joy in your life.
The KonMari Method is about creating a mindset of not just a way to de-clutter your house, but
it enables people to “acquire the mindset needed to stay tidy forever”, rather than just doing a
purge every once and a while (thespruce.com). It truly becomes a lifestyle (and a much more
organized one at that!).
