If you’re like most other people across the globe, your home can become untidy no matter how hard you try to fight it. Sometimes it’s from clutter, sometimes it’s from too many items not getting put back where they belong. Regardless of the cause, a cluttered space can impact our stress levels.
Marie Kondo is a name that’s been sweeping the nation thanks to her best-selling book and Netflix series, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” In the show, Kondo shows each family how to follow each step of the Konmari organization method to improve the orderliness of their homes. Below, we’ll walk you through the Marie Kondo categories and tips to tidy up your home and make it feel more orderly.
Purging is the first step in the process. Rather than purge by room, Marie Kondo shows the families how to purge using five categories:
These categories are in order of easiest to hardest to let go of, so going through them in order means being able to purge more. By using each of the categories to tidy, you have less of a chance of leaving duplicate items. You also get a better idea of how many belongings you really have by bringing every item from a category into the same room.
As you go through your items in each category, hold each one and ask yourself if it “sparks joy” for you. If the answer is no, thank it for what it taught you (that this type of shirt isn’t your favorite, that you don’t enjoy that genre of movies and so forth) and set it aside to donate or throw away. If the answer is yes, put it with the rest of the items to keep and organize.

Next comes the organization process. Just as you purged items in categories, you can also organize items by category.
