Here’s a glimpse into my pristine closet after reading “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese art of Decluttering and organizing” by Marie Kondo

10 tips I took away from this great book!

1. Love it or lose it!
2. Go by category, not by room
3. Choose what to keep, not what to get rid of
4. Thank items for their service or what they’ve taught you
5. Make space for new things in your life by letting go of the old
6. Clothes: Gather everything in the house in one place and eliminate all clothes you don’t love
7. Books: If you haven’t read it, its purpose was to teach you you didn’t need it
8. Papers: Don’t keep most of them, and avoid complex filing systems!
9. Gym doodads: Thank them for the boost they gave you when you bought them, then give away
10. Animism: Shinto philosophy emphasizes the energy contained in the objects we own
