I KonMaried my clothes

Hey Happy Bookworms!

So I’ve been SUPER busy this week, we had our options evening at school and have now actually gotten our GCSE options form (can’t wait to pick the subjects I’m gonna do for 2 years…yay(!) πŸ˜–) and every teacher, like, unanimously decided to give me a bunch of homework. Basically I just completely forgot on blog on Thursday. Now you’re all like But it’s SaturdayΒ and um…yeah, I remembered yesterday but I just kinda couldn’t be bothered thought of a brilliant idea that I had to finish doing today so I could blog about it!

The idea hit me when I was watching a youtuber organise their stuff with the KonMarie method, I’ve seen a bunch of these videos recently and yeah I’d heard of it before but it never occurred to me to do it until I was just watching one and I was overcome with the urge to do it (like an animal cleaning instinct 🐈)
And then, why not blog about it?

Marie Kondo is a Japanese organising consultant and with her Netflix series ‘Tidying up’ she’s shot to internet fame. Her method is:

  1. Discard by category
    • clothes
    • books
    • papers
    • miscellaneous
    • personal
  2. Break a category into subcategories (clothes – skirts, jeans, jumpers, etc…)
  3. keep only things that ‘spark joy’
  4. After you’ve finished discarding, organize your space thoroughly and completely
  5. Do it all in one go (not little-by-little)

So I did my clothes but I’m pretty good with my clothes and love them all so by doing this I didn’t want to get rid of anything, I just wanted the BEAUTIFUL draws…
Have you seen them?!

The method for clothes is to fold them so they all stand up on their side on their own – sounds pretty impossible but it actually works! It was pretty hard to master and for some reason I always got stuck on the second sleeve of a top (For some reason it was just so hard, ok?!)
Anyway, trousers were by far the easiest to fold, although jumpers are the most satisfying!

Here are the videos I watched to try to master this art (I watched each one so many times, it’s not even funny πŸ˜‚) :

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for…

KonMarie 1

My jumpers & Sweatshirts (I know the white one looks like it says ‘Stach’ (THERE’S NOT A MOUSTACHEΒ  EMOJI I’M GOING TO COMPLAIN) but it actually says pistachio)

KonMarie 2

My tops and bottoms (I don’t just have 3 bottoms, I do have more but they’re in the wash πŸ˜‚)

KonMarie 3

My PJs, tights & socks – I didn’t end up folding all my socks because I just didn’t like how they looked, and I just couldn’t be bothered with my tights, plus I wear them like every day so it would just be a faff.


Did you like this post? I know it was a bit random! Are you going to try the KonMarie method? Have you?

    Ooooo see I like how it makes things stand up, and it’s easier to locate things, but I just…I hang a lot of my clothes up in my wardrobe *when I’ve actually put them away and they’re no longer on my floor* ahem, but I am planning on going through my clothes at some point this month. I have a ton…I’m pretty sure I don’t fit in them all anymore so what’s the point in keeping them *sobs*

    I’m definitely trying the KonMarie video, don’t worry πŸ˜‚ I’ve watched a tutorial so many times it asked me if I was a bot (very embarrassing πŸ˜‚)
    Great post,

        Yasss! So right gurl. I’d probably have the clothes folded in like two seconds seconds if I was a bot πŸ˜‚ Me neither, that is has made me take a whole new look on folding, and a new appreciation for it! πŸ˜†πŸ˜Š
