TIP | FOR WARDROBES THAT DON’T MALFUNCTION
For cupboards the starting point of the KonMari method is tackling items by category and not by location.
The first category to tackle is clothes. This can be further simplified into items like dresses, tops, shoes, and so on. By classifying everything together, you can see how much stuff you really have. It is important to decide what you want to keep in your life. If you focus on what to throw away, you will lose sight of the real purpose of tidying. The best criterion for choosing what to keep is to see if it sparks joy when you touch it. Doing your ‘joy check’ is the most accurate way to figure out of what you should keep.
Next step is applying the unique KonMari way of folding to each of your clothes (left). Approach folding like origami; make a rectangle and the item stand on its own. Vertically folded garments stand up unaided and ensure you’re able to see each and every thing in your drawer without having to lift a finger. You can use shoe boxes to divide up your drawers/shelves into manageable sections.
