Addicted to Kondo (KonMari Method of Tidying)

I love Marie Kondo's method for decluttering and ever since I read the book last year I've gotten a little obsessed with it.

It just made me feel so good to look around and see space and it seems to give me more mental energy as well somehow.

My DP thinks its hilarious and is always asking me what I've kondo-ed that day. My parents think it's ridiculous to read a book about tidying but I genuinely think it's really helpful.

The great thing about it I think is that it's not just organising your stuff, its minimising stuff for ever and that changes your whole space (physical and mental). I'm energised to do some more now since it's NY.

Anyone else feel the same?

I think it is addictive. We think we need all our stuff, but once it is gone it is just forgotten. The space creates is either left bare, which I think is very calming or can be used to place things which are either useful of attractive.Kondo is a bit like Marmite, people seem to fully embrace it or cannot understand it.

It has taken a year for my OH to get on board but, he too, is now convinced.
I have taken 2 years to do it all. Earlier this year I did the garage and at the end of the year I had my garden cleared.

I'm slightly addicted to looking thru the before and after photos in the FB group blush.

I feel physically lighter when i have done a bit of kondoing. Although I havent followed her method to the letter. I find that increased physical space equals mental space. And its lovely.

I love it too. Precious things become more precious because they aren't hidden under a pile of useless ( to me ) stuff. I love it. I find it makes me more enthusiastic for other new projects too.

I'm 2 years in and not only is my house a million times more organised, I encouraged my DH to quit his job (he got a better one within weeks) and I have lost weight.

I'm not at the click point yet in the house and I would love DH to read the book so we can both finish off the garage and garden.

My car is like a giant wheelie bin though.

Oooh link to the facebook group if anyone has it to hand? I've bought the book and have loads to tackle. Annoyingly, I'm also storing a bunch of stuff for relatives, but at least I've have made a start ebaying DD's outgrown clothes and mean to be a lot less cluttered in 2017 smile

This one, I couldn't work out how to do a link blush

I've been on that FB group but left it because people seemed to constantly post about why they needed to keep certain things. Was more like a hoarding group confused
