If you empty your purse at night, you rest your handbag and it lasts longer says Marie Kondo.
So I tried it the other night. If you empty the bag, you have to find a place to put the contents. I found this clear shoebox.
Doing this gave me a different feeling, I don’t know, more organized and in control.
I placed the purse upside down on top of the box, my own idea to avoid germs, lol. In the future I suppose I could wipe the bottom :-).
That morning I refilled the purse, opting to leave out some items, like a stack of other people’s business cards. (Kondo says we don’t need them anyway).
I am so hard on handbags, this Konmari idea is the perfect plan for purse preservation!
Finally a decluttering method that speaks to both my head and my heart, the Konmari method.
1) Keep only what sparks joy in your life.
2) A fabulous folding method that maximizes the space in your drawers.
3) Organizing advice that begins with a strict editing of your belongings via category, not room.
Here is one of the best summaries I’ve found on the Konmari technique.
So guess what I am doing with the rest of my time off?
Getting ready for Konmari!
You guessed it! Taking advantage of an entire day to focus on dealing with my stuff, starting with my clothes. Above is one section of my closet before.
And here is my pants drawer before. Well, times a-wastin’, gotta get back to it.
