Sparking Joy

I've been trying to declutter my house using the Konmari method. If you don't know what this is, you basically go through your things category by category, picking up items and keeping the ones that give you joy. You need to touch each item to decide whether to keep it. I have gone through my clothes and that is about it so far. I need to work on my books but have been putting them off.

I have also been using this method at the thrift store. I'm trying not to bring in more stuff so I have been picking up things that catch my eye and see if they spark joy. It seems to be working as I have been putting a lot of stuff back on the shelves. However, I did pick up this fairy rock garden. Isn't she sweet?

Have you tried the Konmari method? How is it working for you? Do you like to sort category by category or does room by room work better for you? Leave me a comment and let me know.


  1. i love it. we're deep in komono now and so much has left the house. i kind of can't believe it.

  2. I just got Marie Kondo's The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up audio book. It's next on my list. LOL
