Det räcker med (delar av) innehållsförteckningen i Marie Kondos bok The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing för att jag ska få tillräckligt med idéer för minst ett halvår till!

"I had begun to see my things and even my house as an adversary
that I had to beat, and I was constantly in fighting mode."

  • A tidying marathon doesn't cause rebound
  • Tidy a little a day and you'll be tidying forever
  • Why you should aim for perfection
  • The moment you start you reset your life
  • Storage experts are hoarders
  • Sort by category, not by location
  • Make tidying a special event, not a daily chore
  • Start by discarding, all at once, intensely and completely
  • Before you start, visualize your destination
  • Selection criterion: does it spark joy?
  • Don't let your family see
  • Clothing: place every item of clothing in the house on the floor
  • Loungewear: downgrading to "loungewear" is taboo
  • Clothing storage: Fold it right and solve your storage problems
  • Storing socks: treat your socks and stockings with respect
  • Seasonal clothes: eliminate the need to store off-season clothes
  • Storing books: put all your books on the floor
  • Unread books: "sometime" means "never"
  • Books to keep: those that belong in the hall of fame
  • Sorting papers: rule of thumb - discard everything
  • Komono (miscellaneous items): keep things because you love them - not "just because"
  • Reduce until you reach the point where something clicks
  • Follow your intuition and all will be well
  • Designate a place for each thing
  • Storage: pursue ultimate simplicity
  • Don't scatter storage spaces
  • Forget about "flow planning" and "frequency of use"
  • Never pile things: vertical storage is the key
  • No need for commercial storage items
  • The best way to store bags is in another bag
  • Empty your bag every day
  • Items that usurp floor space belong in the closet
  • Don't underestimate the "noise" of written information
  • Appreciate your possessions and gain strong allies
  • Put your house in order and discover what you really want to do
  • Gaining confidence in life through tidying
  • An attachment to the past or anxiety about the future
  • Learning that you can do without
  • Your possessions want to help you
  • Being surrounded by things that spark joy makes you happy
  • Your real life begins after putting your house in order

"Once you learn to choose your belongings properly, you will be left only
with the amount that fits perfectly in the space you currently own."

Trevlig helg! :)
