WHAT IS THE KONMARI METHOD™?

THE KONMARI METHOD™

The six basic rules of tidying:

1. Commit yourself to tidying up

2. Imagine your ideal lifestyle

3. Finish discarding first

4. Tidy by category

5. Follow the right order

6. Ask yourself if it sparks joy

 

It is crucial not only to tidy by category but also to follow the correct order, which is

  • clothes,

  • books,

  • papers,

  • kimono (miscellany),

  • and finally, sentimental items.
