This year Netflix seems determined to help us all fix and organize our lives…starting with the new hit series ‘Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.’ Here are a few reasons we are loving her approach to sorting things out and getting organized…just in time for New Year’s resolutions.
She brings the joy to organizing
Her mission? Help people tidy up by choosing joy…if it doesn’t bring happiness anymore it is time to let those thing go. We love this because anything that places importance on inner peace and a focus on looking towards the future, count us in!
She shows you the way
Whether it’s through the stories on her new Netflix series, on her website, or through her best-selling books, Marie Kondo inspires and teaches people to make subtle changes in their lives for the better. These are realistic changes anyone can make!
The KonMari Method
Kondo teaches us to stop organizing little by little, room by room, and start thinking about tidying up by category. Begin with clothes, then move to books, papers, miscellaneous items and then ending with sentimental things…keeping only things that speak to the heart. Her six basic rules of tidying include:
- Commit yourself
- Imagine your ideal lifestyle
- Finish discarding first
- Tidy by category, not location
- Follow the right order
- Ask yourself if your things spark joy
