Transcript of The Konmari Method

Created by Japanese author Marie Kondo in this book
this rule is especially important
This is easier said than done
there's a reason why the first rule is "commit yourself to tidying up"
The Method
The Konmari Method is a way of life and state of mind that encourages cherishing things that spark joy in people's lives. Belongings are acknowledged for their service and thanked before being let go if they no longer spark joy.
Your possessions reflect your state of mind- deep cleaning and organizing with this method will encourage self-reflection and growth.

You have to be willing to part with a lot of your possessions and use the method as a chance to grow and reflect on your life.
Ask Yourself If It Sparks Joy
If you can, hold the item in your hands and ask yourself "does this spark joy?" If you can say yes without a doubt, then keep it, if not, get rid of it
If an item truly sparks joy, you will not have to reason or rationalize or make excuses; you will confidently hold on to it
What if it's an old photo/memento/other sentimental object?
Just because we feel like we need to keep things doesn't mean we should -

we fear that if we throw away these objects that we'll be loosing the precious memories and legacy that goes with them -

truly precious memories will never vanish, even if you discard the things associated with them.
only keep what sparks joy.
Feeling Guilty
Although it may sound strange, this book encourages creating a dialogue with your home and possessions while tidying
thank the item you're letting for its service. it may seem a little weird, but it helps get rid of the irrational guilt and encourages caring for and appreciating other items in your life.
Other tips
Sort and purge by category rather than by room
start with clothes, end with sentimental objects
Do this in private, it's a very personal process
keep similar items together
Avoid stacks and scattered storage areas
Focus on what to keep rather than what to throw away
Do one big cleaning sweep rather than tackling it throughout multiple days
Organize Your Life
