Tips - Spring cleaning: 3 tips to prick at Marie Kondo

Author of the best seller "the magic of storage", the Japanese Marie Kondo has developed a method which consists in organizing, storing and unclosing its interior. The goal ? Make your habitat more pleasant to live by getting rid of the superfluous to make a maximum of space. Decorative objects, clothes, books, memories ... everything goes! What if it was the time to sort through our cupboards?

Tip n ° 1: throw to win square meters

The first step in the "Konmari" method consists of Try our objects in 2 categories : Those who give us joy and those who give us indifference. If an object gives us pleasure, we can keep it. If not, outside! This exercise allows you to get rid of things that are not useful. We therefore do part by piece, piling up all the things that we can throw, give or recycle. By keeping only what we really like, we find a healthy living space that gives us a feeling of serenity. If the exercise turns out to be difficult, it is formidably effective to start putting your daily life in order.

Tip n ° 2: Reorganize your interior

Once the sorting stage is passed, you have to tackle storage. To do this, we adopt the famous Folding method From Marie Kondo, which consists in rolling the clothes and placing them vertically so that they are all visible at a glance. This also applies to household linen: duvet covers, bed sheets and pillowcases. Thus arranged, one can draw an element in its cupboards without risking dropping the whole battery. And if we are missing storage spaces, Marie Kondo recommends using boxes that we will slip into our cupboards. Again, the goal is to optimize the space so that it is more pleasant to live (and to look).

Tip n ° 3: Putting order in the duration

Once the house is tidy, there is no question of letting the damn resume its place in our universe. Since we always end up buying unnecessary things, Marie Kondo advises to sort and put her closets regularly to continue living in joy and good humor. A quest for minimalism that echoes Slow Living trend : A way of life that consists in reviewing our behaviors to consume in a more responsible and environmentally friendly way. Keep objects that are really useful, freeing yourself from consumerism. What if it was content with little, was it ultimately the best recipe to be happy?
