5 Before and After Pics That Prove the KonMari Method Works

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new trend in organizing nowadays, and these 5 before and after pics that prove the KonMari method works might just convince you to be one of the new wave of admirers who obsessively fold their shirts using the “roll technique” or rid their homes of books that no longer “spark joy.”

Most people would agree that letting go of clutter is one of the most difficult tasks that anyone has to do. However, now that Japanese lifestyle guru and tidying consultant Marie Kondo has made minimalism the current rage, maybe it’s about time we stop hoarding useless things that imply a sense of dissatisfaction in our lives.

Having an organized space can make your home comfortable to live and work in. It also saves you time in arranging hundreds of cluttered things every time you clean. Besides, there’s a certain calmness to be found in a clean and organized space.


It Works!

You’ve probably heard about Marie Kondo’s bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, as well as her Netflix series, Tidying Up, where she goes into people’s messy homes and starts organizing their stuff using her personalized Konmari Method. Many folks can attest to the effectiveness of the Konmari Method as it encourages them to be more introspective, mindful, and forward-looking. Here are some pictures that show that the KonMari Method works.
