  1. I love your approach to Konmari! It’s the same way I came to it except that I was dieting so I skipped clothing until, 40 lbs later, I could see what looked good (sparked joy!) and what didn’t. Surprisingly, some things I kept for the time when I got back into them didn’t make me happy at all! Anyway, I’m loving the method and loved reading about your experience. Oh — I don’t talk to my clothes either, or feel sorry for my socks. 😁 Oh, BTW, do try emptying your purse every night. It’s like the other activities— liberating! Thanks again!

    Thank you

  8. I’ve been listening to the book via Audible WHILE I’m tidying! It’s helping to keep me going, and her voice is so calming it makes for a rather Zen experience 🙂

  9. I’ve been thinking about reading that book too. I’m a major organizer already but it sounds like it’s clever writing.

    1. It really is a great book! You have to be able to handle the cheese factor, but it really helped me a lot.

  10. Good idea, but I really don’t need the free app and I don’t want to install it on my computer.

    1. Hi Natalie – not sure what app you’re referring to, I don’t believe I referenced any computer apps in this post.

  11. I signed up for the newsletter and got the ebook, but want to get a copy of your Konmari checklists. How can I do that?

    1. Hi, Jen! The checklist should be at the very end of the ebook! 🙂

  12. Girl there are WAY to many adds on this blog! I know bloggers need to make money and all that jazz, but it was almost impossible to read this because of all the adds popping up….. just some feedback…. I think you would have a better following if you took the adds down a notch or two…

    1. Hey, Mikki – I appreciate the feedback. Our ads are run through a third-party service, and there shouldn’t be any ad pop ups. I apologize if there were any, I’ll definitely keep an eye on that!

  14. Love your ideasre tidying would love to see a checklist of where to start

  15. Awesome article and very helpful! thank you 🙂 Did you do everything in one day or split it between days? I was confused because she says do it all at once. But for people who have other work too, doing it all at once would mean taking time off work for a few days at least. But if I split it between days, am I really following her method?

    1. Oh I definitely split it up! I actually wrote a quick guide to how I tackled it all – it can get overwhelming! If you sign up for my newsletter, the ebook will automatically send to you! It’s a day-by-day breakdown of how to do the whole process in about 30 days.

  16. Loved this blog – Ps she wants you to declutter in the order specified so that you, essentially, build the emotional strength to deal with the last category. Clothes have the least emotional attachment, sentimental items the most. So she wants you to ‘practice’ on the ‘easy’ categories first!!

    1. Ah yes, that’s it! Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  17. I was bothered by my husband’s stuffed side of the closet, so one day I asked him if I could pull out some things I thought he could get rid of and he said yes. I laid my picks out on the bed and let him say yea or nay. He said I could get rid of the vast majority of it, and we purged a TON of his clothing! It felt good and worked well. Just a suggestion. 🙂

    1. Smart! I’ve tried that, but it never is quite as successful for me. 🙂 He’s too much of a hoarder!

  18. I waited to get a copy from the library too and after a few pages in, went ahead and bought it! I haven’t had time to officially start the process of tidying but since finishing the book, ive made an effort to sort and organize things I’ve let get messy for far too long. Looking forward to hearing your experience!

    1. Yes! I think I might just have to buy a physical copy so I can go back and highlight and write all over it. And so I can re-read it when I’m struggling through the process!

  19. “or emptying your purse out at the end of every single day (ain’t nobody got time for that!)” HAHA! I could never….

    Thanks for this post – I am definitely picking up a copy of that book! I loved the piece of advice to go by category of item, not by room. It probably helps to see the whole picture of that particular category so you can really hone in on what to keep and what to donate.

    1. It’s really a great book! There are definitely some quirks to it (like the recommendation to talk to your clothes), but overall it really changed how I look at organizing!
