Can eliminating the clutter from your home really change your life?
I was desperate to find out.
The past few years have been very stressful for me. My husband and I have been overwhelmed by a few big, ugly situations. Messy circumstances involving money, business, family and friendships.
It has been rough.
Knowing that clutter increases stress levels, I longed to clean out the excess and create a more peaceful home. Our home contained a normal amount of clutter. We had some systems that worked well and many areas where we could do better. These ‘hot spots’ created stress because they were never completely handled.
As the saying goes, “When the student is ready, the master appears”.
Enter the master, Marie Kondo.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo is inspiring and informative. I couldn’t read it fast enough. I was ready to begin the
process after the second chapter. Encouraged by the simplicity of the KonMari Method, I enlisted the help of my three children and we embarked on a major, household-wide tidying mission. The whole house took a little over two weeks.
I finished the final category on a Tuesday.
The next day, the very next day, I received word of complete resolution in two of the ‘ugly situations’ we had been struggling to resolve.
Within 24 hours of tidying my house, I experienced huge positive changes in my life. Coincidence? Maybe, but I prefer to believe that by letting go of a whole bunch of stagnant stuff…there is finally some space for positive vibes to hang out!
There is magic is this method!
When this book was first released in the U.S. back in January, 2015, I honestly didn’t think I needed to read it. I clean out closets as part of my job. I wasn’t sure Ms. Kondo could teach me anything new.
Boy, was I wrong!
The KonMari Method uses techniques I’ve never seen before.
Simple. Direct. No nonsense.
I highly recommend that you read the book. It can be read in three evenings, tops. However, I understand that you might just want to start tidying!
Wish there was a cheat sheet? You’re in luck!
I've created a worksheet packed with the information needed to begin
this life-changing process. Just enter your email below and I'll send it
right to your inbox. In addition, I'm documenting my tidying journey on
YouTube...if you'd like to follow along.
Clear out the clutter and prepare for wonderful changes!
