One of my February goals was to work on a list of simplifying tasks I made up for myself. I shared them as inspiration for anyone in the process of decluttering their home. Then I got thrown a curveball when I was gifted “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo. She has a unique decluttering method and perspective on how to tidy, and it didn’t align with my list of tasks. First, Kondo says you should tidy by category and not space. This list, by contrast, handles items by space. So what’s a girl to do? I had already started some of these tasks, so I continued them, but for all other categories I went by her process. Kondo insists you must tidy in one swoop vs. bit by bit, and I’m aiming to be done this month. Here’s what I’ve done so far as part of my decluttering.
1. Go through notes in my memo app and delete ones that are no longer necessary. Done.
Do you enjoy decluttering? Did you use the KonMarie method or another process? Tell me all about it in the comments!
