A few months ago, I think it was, I noticed some twitter friends discussing decluttering and, being the eavesdropper that I am, I did not join in the conversation. However, I did take note that the method they were discussing was the KonMari method.
Friends, I am in desperate need of this method. What it is essentially is that everything in your home should spark joy. You declutter by type of object, I guess, starting with clothes and then just go from there – at least, this is what I have gleaned from the internet and google. I have given in though. I bought The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo via Audible.
I have set a gaol of at least decluttering 100 books. You see, I have plans to possibly move in March and I refuse to move as many boxes of books as I did during my last move. So, it is time to let go and only keep books which spark joy.
Here are my before pictures. I will keep you guys updated as I KonMari the hell out of my books. I am thinking instead of piling every single book I own on the floor, I will do a shelf at a time as I also do not really spend weekends at my apartment.
