We KonMari’ed Over 6 Months Ago. This Is Where We Are Now…

Since we both implemented the KonMari method at the beginning of the year, we wanted to check in and see if it was still working in our households.  We are both still folding clothes the KonMari way and we feel that everything still has a place. Of course we still have to “re-konmari” our pantry and closet from time to time but overall are in a much more organized state of life.  

We reached out to some of our friends that implemented the method at the same time as us.  

“Konmari has helped me to continually get rid of things we don’t need.  I do a lot less saving things for ‘someday’ and that makes my small house feel a little bigger.” – Niamh Lacey

“Konmari has unearthed so many ‘new’ items I forgot I even owned.  By decluttering and organizing everything in a way where I can now see it better, I’ve stopped buying so many items I already had stocked away but just never had ease to use at my fingertips.  I’ve also continued with my folding method and find it so much easier for finding that T-shirt I’m looking for.” – Ashleigh Johnson

“It makes me think before I bring anything new into the house.  Am I going to use it often enough to warrant it taking up space?  Especially for wardrobes. Is this something that I can wear often with different styles and for different occasions?” – Dawn Howe

“Well I just purged my closet again.  I would say in general it’s helping me stay organized.  Always feels good to see those neat drawers.” – Mary Ann Manuele

So basically – we are still huge fans of the KonMari method!
