7-Day KonMari-Inspired Challenge For Beginners
We're going to call it: 2016 is the year of decluttering. POPSUGAR editors and readers alike can't get enough of organisational strategies, and the one tactic that pops up over and over again is that of Japanese decluttering expert Marie Kondo. It's commonly called the KonMari method, and in a nutshell, it involves significantly paring down your belongings until you're left with only the items that spark joy or see regular use.
Inspired by Kondo's method, we've created a seven-day challenge that will help bring order to your home for good. Some of her methods may seem dramatic, so it's important to do what you can. Plus, she advocates getting rid of many household items, so make sure to consider donating anything in good or reusable condition. Finally, Kondo suggests that aspiring organisers tackle their home in one whirlwind day, but we believe that true, lasting change takes a bit longer — perhaps, one full week.
