Before Tara taught me about The KonMari Method I was like most people in terms of hanging onto items that never get used. As well the process showed me things that I forgot I had because they were hidden in a closet or bookshelf. Once I decided what clothes I wanted to keep and which ones to donate Tara showed me how to fold and store my clothes which is fantastic. The way my clothes are folded and stored shows me all of my items in a drawer, nothing is stacked so you can see everything. Getting dressed is much more time efficient now. Furthermore I’m not wearing the same item over and over again because its at the top of a pile. The same holds true for physical items such as books, puzzles, kitchen accessories and old pictures etc. Once I decided what to keep and donate the rest my shelves became manageable. Ultimately due to working with Tara my spaces are no longer cluttered, kept only what I want, my house is much more tidy and best of all it gives me a good feeling. My advice is to not rush and go slow.
I used to waste so much time looking for things around the house. Now that I have decided what to keep and discarded the rest my storage areas are not overflowing anymore and I can see what’s there and everything has a special spot. The biggest change is now it takes me minutes to get dressed in the morning rather than my previous 15-20 minute ritual that included trying on several outfits that I didn’t like and looking for misplaced clothes. After tidying my home with Tara I have more time to spend playing with my kids, trying new recipes and reading that I wasted tidying and looking for things.
“Thank you Tara for sharing the KonMari method with me! I have spent many years moving clutter from one room to the next without successfully tidying up my home! The time you spent helping me to declutter has changed how I manage my home! I am amazed at how much easier it is to find what I’m looking for! The folding method changes everything!”
