Konmari: Digital Declutter

Marie Kondo doesn’t talk a lot about digital items. The only aspect she discusses is digital photos (in Spark Joy). However, I want to clear up my digital belongings just like my physical ones, so I decided to go through all my computer files and any sort of ‘online presence’ like email accounts. Essentially, I wanted Read More…

Konmari: Kitchen Equipment

The time has come…to declutter the kitchen dishes, pots, pans, utensils, storage containers… Once again, I broke this down into smaller groupings. This was useful not only to create manageable tasks for the time I had, but because it limited things to groups that would fit on my table, so I could work there. First Read More…

Konmari: Decor

My next category to tidy up was decor, which included both everyday items in our house and seasonal decorations which are packed away. For everyday decor, I went around the house grabbing everything that seemed to fit the category. This included candles, vases and figurines, magnets on the fridge, clocks, house plants, and pictures on Read More…
