Have you tried to "Marie Kondo" your home yet? I have, and here's how it's going so far...

First, let me give you a little background if you're unfamiliar. Marie Kondo has a Netflix show called "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo", where she teaches her KonMari method (tidying up by category, as opposed to room-by-room) to people who need help decluttering their homes and lives. While tidying, Kondo tells people to hold each item and decide if it "sparks joy". If it sparks joy, keep it; if it doesn't, discard it. Through this method, you'll end up with just the items that you really love. Kondo and her method of organizing is gaining so much in popularity that her name is turning into a verb; example, I just "Marie Kondo-ed" my entire closet. Which brings me back to how my organizing is going so far...

Since I started the show, I've also started applying Kondo's method of KonMari to my life. I started with the first category of items that Kondo has you go through; your clothes. And so far, I'm very happy with my progress. Sadly, I didn't take any before or after photos, but I will say that I find real value in Kondo's KonMari method. I got rid of clothes that no longer sparked joy and I the ones I'm left with I really love. I'm excited to continue "Marie Kond-ing" the rest of my house and I'll keep you updated on the progress!
