A Megaguide to Making Your Life More Serene Using the KonMari Method

A Megaguide to Making Your Life More Serene Using the KonMari Method

I spent the last year organizing my house – and in many ways my life – by the principles in the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It’s been a fascinating journey and one I wouldn’t have anticipated when I impulsively clicked “Buy Now” over a year ago. It’s fair to say that reading the book and implementing the KonMari method of organization really did change my life in both small ways and really big ways. For example, a future blog post is going to show how I looked around my downstairs living room, decided that it didn’t exactly spark joy, and changed it from a room that was “all right” to a room that makes my heart sing. (After that, I’ll have my husband write a guest post about why he’s still married to me. I’m sure we’ll all be interested in that – me included.)

I’ve been documenting my journey over the past year on the blog so here’s a big mega post of everything I’ve tried and everything I’ve learned. As always, I’d love to hear your experiences and comments. And if you’ve tried out the KonMari method and blogged about – definitely feel free to drop a link to your post in the comments as well. I’d love to grow this post into a list of great real-life stories from around the Internet.

    I think you rebound because you didn’t follow her method 100%. When you do, you will never rebound. You’re family will slowly begin to follow this wonderful routine. Good luck!

    Just found your blog tonight and I was wondering did you ever post about your downstairs livingroom
    going from ok to “makes my heart sing?” Just curious what you chose to do with that room. Look forward
    to reading more on your blog.
