A few tips from Marie Kondo:
Tackle categories not rooms!
By doing all your clothes or all your books at one time you are able to rein in the clutter! And when building a new home consider customizing to add closets or storage for the things you keep.
Respect your belongings!
If everything is messy…your clothes are not happy! Would you be happy if you were squished in a corner shelf or crowded on to hangers! Are your socks refreshed by being wadded up in potato balls? By folding in her recommended methods you get that sense of calmness you want!
No need for expensive equipment!
You don’t need to go to expensive stores to by all the latest organizational products! She uses the simple shoe boxes and other items that we already have!
By customizing your Reality home and by surrounding your life with items that you love and speak to your heart there is no other way to contentment! Be sure and pick up her book and get more tips, it’s a fun read.
May your dreams be a Reality home!!
