The KonMari method is created by a Japanese organising expert/consultant named Marie Kondo.

“Let me share with you the secret of success. Start by discarding.

Then organize your space, thoroughly, completely, in one go.

If you adopt this approach—the KonMari Method

you’ll never revert to clutter again.”

The goal of the KonMari Method is to have a house full of items that spark joy.

A lot of people know her from her best selling book named The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and she now has a popular Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

The KonMari Method’s main goal isn’t exactly about organizing our things

it’s about creating a space filled with things that spark joy, rather than things that add to the stress of our daily lives.

There are some techniques that you will need to follow to apply KonMari  successfully to your home.

Ladies, here are some inexpensive tips for you!

#1 Tidy All in One Go

Rather than  cleaning one room a day, devote a whole day  (or weekend)  to clean it up.

If you just clean one room at a time for an extended period of time, in a matter of a few weeks or months, it will wind up getting messy again.

“In Japanese, the term is ikki ni, or ‘in one go.’”

“Ultimate secret of success is this: If you tidy up in one shot, rather than little by little, you can dramatically change your mindset.

#2 Tidy by grouping items and not location

Most people store items in different  locations which fall into the  same  “category.”

You even have  clothes in your wardrobe, under your bed and in your dresser, for example.

But first address your clothing instead of tackling the wardrobe or a  dresser.

Categories (in order): Clothes first, then books, papers, komono (miscellany), and lastly, mementos.

#3 Visualize the lifestyle you want

Visualize your  perfect lifestyle  before throwing  things away.

Goals like, “I want to live free of clutter” or

“I want to be able to put things away,”  are too vague.

You have to think  concretely, like:

“I want to live like a Goddess,  surrounded by  peace and beauty.”

KonMari explains that you can more effectively imagine the home and lifestyle you desire, by speaking in these specific terms.

Instead of  concentrating solely on throwing away  items which  Ms. Kondo admits  brings only  unhappiness, be  sure to enjoy what  you value.

Does it by taking  each object in your hand and asking  yourself “does this  cause joy?

“If yes, then it will  remain. Then chuck it out if it doesn’t  ignite joy.

Note: Every item  must be touched so your body can react.

#4 Regulate if each item sparks joy

It is not about  getting rid of stuff  you don’t want anymore,

it’s about holding  things that ignite joy.

So, just think  positively and  always ask yourself  if anything is giving you joy without  making a argument about why it is  stressing you out.

Marie Kondo ‘s  lessons  demonstrate that  you’re just inviting  unhappiness into your life by dwelling  on what isn’t  making you happy.

You’re only  creating more  misery if you look  around your home  and focus on those  things you can’t stand up to.

#5 Tidy In Order

Kondo has come up with the ideal order in which to tidy up,

which we  have made into a KonMari checklist.




Komono (Misc. stuff)


You can then split it into sub-categories from each category, making  the process even  simpler.

For instance the  “Clothes” category  could be subdivided seasonally.

Creating your own subcategories enables  the visualization of what you have, whatyou need, and what brings you joy or not
