KonMari Decluttering Method Final Thoughts

After 5 weeks (which really was like 11 weeks) of Decluttering using the KonMari method, I’m going to slow down on my formal plan/approach to doing this AND blogging about it.  Mainly – I’m not going to be doing a prep post and then a results post going forward.  There are still things I want…

Week 5: Komono – Bathroom Results!

I spent about a week and a half actually working on my master bathroom and the 2nd bathroom in our home.  Again – I like to mention that my storage/organization solutions may not be the final product, but I had to make do with what I had on hand.  I don’t want to spend a…

Week 5: Komono – Bathroom

Next up for the Komono section is the Master Bathroom.  Specifically – the cabinet under my sink.   This cabinet holds all my extra makeup, manicure supplies, shampoo, toothpaste…basically everything.  At one point I had it pretty well organized, but now it’s to the point of not having room to put anything new and I…

Week 4: Komono – Kitchen Results!

I did it!!  This post it a little delayed but I really did get the entire kitchen decluttered in 1 week 🙂  Woot woot, go me!  I basically tackled a different cabinet/drawer each day and had a pile of things on the counter for donation at the end of each day.  And I’ve actually already…

Week 3 Paper Results (Part 2) & Decluttering Plan Update

This is difficult for me to write because I’ve had such good momentum on this decluttering plan.  However, this is supposed to be my Paper Purge (part 2) results, which should mean that I’m telling/showing you how FINISHED I am…  that’s not going to happen.   Here’s the deal…our home is 1-story with a bonus…

Week 3: Paper Results (part 1)

Whelp…as expected, I am not even CLOSE to being finished with the papers this week.  So this is a quick Part 1 update to my status so far.  And I’ll admit, it’s not just that it’s a lot of papers to go through, but I wasn’t as dedicated to getting it done this week as…

Week 3: Papers

  Papers! Uggh. This one is the biggest struggle. I think it’s safe to say that many people struggle with this. Mail comes in, it gets put on the counter, perhaps it’s opened and read, but then put back on the counter for someone else in the household to review.   In my case, something…

Week 2: Book Purge Results

Like I thought, this went quickly and was fairly easy.  It took 1 hour.  The most difficult part was my toddler helping and tossing the books about and rearranging my piles.   I did get my husband to help and go through his books as well. *This before picture is not ALL of the books.  I…
