“KonMarie“ Method – Marie Kondo
The Japanese Marie Kondo became famous because of her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and even more well known worldwide when her method became a series on Netflix, with Marie Kondo herself helping families organize their homes.
Among her teachings, Marie Kondo teaches the importance of detachment from self-questioning whether each object brings happiness and whether or not to keep it
If, when you take an object in your hand, you feel that it does not bring you happiness anymore, you should let go of it, but before discarding it, you should thank it for the time it served you.
The method is divided into 5 categories:
- Write a list
All items in your home must be classified and placed in one of these 5 categories, so you can better understand the function and location of each of them.
It is essential that in shared wardrobes the spaces are divided and each one is responsible for their share.
To start organizing the clothes, the first step is to stack all of them on the bed, so that in this way you can visualize everything you have.
After doing this, take each piece of clothing in your hand and do the exercise of detachment by asking yourself whether or not it brings you happiness and choosing to get rid of what no longer makes you happy, but don’t forget to thank you first.
2 – Books
When organizing your books, it is important to put them in the same place, preventing them from getting scattered around the house.
3 – Drawers

4 – Papers
Papers must be separated between:
5 – Objects of sentimental value

By applying it, you will certainly feel an instant difference in your home, which will become more organized, but also more functional for your routine.
