I’ll be honest this was one hell of a process. I am certainly not obsessed with materialism or many of my personal items but saying “thank you” to clothes that I’ve made fond memories but haven’t held up to wear-and-tear, or those that used to look so good on me but now sag (or hug) all the wrong places, was very tough to do.
I can say that I’m proud of the end result. Already, I understand the hype around Marie’s life-changing method. Walking into my closet feels so different (dare I say “joyful”) now. I genuinely feel happier looking at my clothes now than I did this time last week. Plus, I gained a lot of extra draw-orage space.
Even laundry feels like far less of a chore now that I’m only washing clothes that I actually like. Never having to look at the ones that make me feel gross or old, is a luxury I never would have thought I needed in my life. I’m almost disappointed honestly, I went into this thinking I’d debunk the hysteria and may even *gasp* find a better method of my own; but Ms. Kondo is on to something here. I’m not ashamed to say that I’m not just hopping onto this bandwagon, I feel as if I’m driving it toward every unsuspecting coworker and friend that risks telling me they need to be more organized.
