How-To: Clean Up Papers—The KonMari Way

It's time to find your books a new home!


If you're a loyal follower of the KonMari method, we're sure you already know a few useful hacks when it comes to cleaning the closet, letting go of hoarded items, and even a few tricks when folding clothes. Haven't started yet? Don't worry, you can read a quick primer and be on your way to a life-changing journey. 

For those who are familiar with the process, you are aware that another highlight in this book was to get rid of papers that you no longer need. Marie Kondo also believes that books that you've read can be given or donated to others—doing this shows that the books have served their purpose in your life.

Lifestyle vlogger, Lavendaire, came up with another video tutorial that can help you make your transition easier. She also shows Before and After footage that will inspire you to keep going! 

If you've begun sorting your books, we would love to see your progress! Feel free to send us photos of your shelves once you're happy with the end result.
