What is it? A method made famous in the hugely popular book, The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up. It is based on the ancient Japanese philosophy of respect toward material things.
How it works: It encourages tidying up by category — not by room. You ask yourself, "does this item give me joy?" If it does, keep it. If it doesn’t, thank it and let it go. You do this first with your clothes, then books, papers, miscellaneous items, and lastly, sentimental pieces.
Why we love it: It is a very thorough and meaningful way to declutter your home.
