Now that a New Year is here, and pretty soon many of us will start spring cleaning, it is the perfect time to declutter our homes and lives in general. This is a pretty easy task for me as I don’t have a hard time getting rid of things. In fact if it doesn’t have a useful place within my home you can guarantee it will be gone. There really is no major method to the way I declutter and organize. Usually I take a little time each day to quickly go through the house and clean.

Did you know there were rules to tidying up and decluttering your life?
There is a well-known way to declutter and organize your life NOW called the KonMari Method. (I have a FREE printable checklist for you at the bottom of this post).
I had no idea until I read Marie Kondo’s book a few years ago. Her book is called: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. She encourages you to keep the things that bring you joy and discard the rest.
Even if you haven’t read this book, you may have heard about her new Netflix show, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo“. Ever since her show came out I have seen people all over social media getting rid of all the things.
How do you know where to start decluttering?
The KonMari Method says you should tidy by category, not location.
This means that you should begin with clothes (see my closet organization tips), then move on to books, papers, miscellaneous items, and last but not least, sentimental items. Try and focus on keeping only those things that speak to the heart.
In case you are feeling a bit lost on all of this declutter and tidying up talk I have something to help make your life easier.
