5. Learn how to fold your clothes and store your socks properly.
Marie Kondo’s folding videos do for me what ASMR videos do for ASMR-ers. Basically, no matter what the item of clothing is, it should end up looking like a rectangle when you’re done folding it. Once you achieve the rectangle shape, you can roll it or fold it further to fit it into your desired drawer.
Marie also highly recommends color-coordinating your clothes for better organizational results. And also, because things always look nicer that way.
6. For the kitchen, keep it simple.
My biggest takeaway from the way Marie Kondo approaches kitchens is to focus on how easy things are to clean. People usually tend to focus on how easy or accessible items or appliances are to use in the kitchen, but Marie’s approach is actually much simpler. By ridding yourself of clutter on your counters (again, there’s a place for everything and everything has its place), you’ll have a much easier time cooking and cleaning afterward.
7. Tackling the work space.
I used Marie’s method to revamp by home office and it didn’t only make it look a lot lighter, it also made me worlds more productive. According to the KonMari method, don’t just crowd your desk with practical items, add in objects that also spark joy so that you can feel relaxed and inspired to work when you sit down at your desk.
