Sometimes it feels that things have gotten so out of hand that there’s nothing for it but to burn down the house and start again from scratch. (Anyone else ever felt like this?) Decluttering can be difficult, particularly when you don’t even know where to start. Stuff is screaming at you from every surface and you feel that if you could just see your table top again, life would be a little easier.You’re sick of losing things, and falling over things, and generally feeling like the clutter is getting out of control, but you’re struggling to actually let go of … Onwards! ->

The KonMari Method — ‘Paper’ (Round 2)

Digital decluttering of computer files & social media profiles. How to do a digital detox & free up storage space.

I don’t know a single person who has looked forward to this category of the KonMari Method — ‘Paper’. I’m no exception. Even though my pile was significantly reduced last year, paper is still so fiddly and contains so many different types of information that it becomes a pain in the arse to manage.But let’s jump on in and look at how I fared last year, and then leap forward to this year’s foray. There’ll be a discussion on all the ways I failed, the things I learned, and Marie Kondo’s #1 tip when it comes to paper clutter. (It’s … Onwards! ->

The KonMari Method — Books (Round 2)

The KonMari Method -- Books. Before and after pics, from a bookworm. ;)

Ah, books. I have such a love affair with them. If you want to make me happy, give me a comfortable chair and a good book and don’t you fucking dare disturb me for several hours. So with that in mind, did I manage to declutter any of them at all? Well let’s just say that this was like the anti-KonMari of categories — very much the odd-one-out for me. Onwards! -> Onwards! ->

Minimalist Living — How To Be Curator Of Your Own Life

A great guide to minimalist living (even with kids and lots of stuff)

If you’re like my husband, you’ll think that being minimalist involves living in an empty house with bare walls and rooms. It’s all doom and gloom — devoid of personality, modern conveniences, or any sense of fun. He also thinks minimalism is impossible to achieve with children. But lately, I’ve been trying to explain to him what minimalist living really means, so that he can stop freaking out every time I go on another KonMari bender. 😉Because yes, you CAN be a minimalist with children and still own a lot of stuff.

The KonMari Method — ‘Clothes’ (Round 2)

It’s been a year since I first started the KonMari Method. Has it been life-changing? Yes. Why am I doing it again? ‘Cause I want my life changed twice. Duh. 😛 (And for another reason I’ll mention a little later on.) So let’s start with a quick recap of the clothes category from last time and whether I kept up the good work in the interim, and then move on to how I fared the second time around.

Declutter your home header

Clutter got you feeling claustrophobic? At my worst, I used to have to beat a path from the bedroom door to my bed, where I’d then sleep on a pile of clothes or cooped up in a corner away from the books and papers strewn across the sheets. When your life’s like that, it’s hard to feel you can make any progress. But I persevered and, slowly but surely, I regained some floor space and, now, the only thing I share my bed with is my husband.

The KonMari Method — Mementoes

‘Mementoes’ is the final category in the KonMari Method… and I fucking did it! When I first started the Method back in April of this year, I wasn’t entirely convinced I’d finish it. And I certainly didn’t think it would take this long! It’s been 8 long months and, to be honest, I’m not really done yet because there are still some things to go to the charity shop, and a few other things that are still searching for homes around the house. If that makes sense. (And for another reason I’ll go into later in this post.) Nonetheless, I’m … Onwards! ->
