Taking Control of Your Home

Now that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, you can begin to feel excited about the chance to be able to get out of your home. With that being said, it’s time to get up, take a look at the mess that has accumulated throughout quarantine and get to work on decluttering your home for the summer. 

The Marie Kondo Method

Many people are familiar with the very prevalent “Marie Kondo” organization method. While this is talked about across a wide variety of platforms, many people don’t truly understand what the Marie Kondo method entails, and how her methods captivated so many people for such a long time.

The Marie Kondo method consists of two main components: what brings you joy, and categorical organization. While most people default to a location based method, Kondo recommends a categorical method. Instead of tidying up from room to room, Kondo’s approach suggests starting with clothes, then moving onto books, papers, miscellaneous items, and lastly, sentimental items.

Being stuck at home for this final stretch, now is the perfect time to dig into these different categories of items found in your home.
