10 of our Favourite Marie Kondo Decluttering Tips to Spark Joy this Spring


  1.  Greet your home with gratitude before cleaning, fostering a positive and
    appreciative mindset.
  2. Spark joy by decluttering one category at a time, starting with clothes and ending with sentimental items.
  3. Clear kitchen counters by keeping only essential items, creating a serene and
    efficient cooking space.
  4. Tidy books and papers by keeping only those that truly resonate with you, cultivating a more peaceful environment.
  5. Transform dead spaces into functional nooks with floating shelves, giving your room a touch of elegance and utility.
  6. Sort through digital clutter by organizing files into specific folders, promoting clarity in your virtual space.
  7. Revamp your entryway with a designated ‘joyful station&’; for keys, shoes, and essentials, welcoming you with clarity – coat and hat racks work well here.
  8. Contain small items in dedicated boxes within drawers, granting them a designated home and preventing clutter.
  9. Complete each cleaning task fully before moving on to the next, allowing you to appreciate the transformative power of tidying.
