How I used the KonMari Method to Put Away My Clothes?

By Suzanne Roberts Lukowsky

Folding and putting away clothes after the laundry has been done looks easier and less daunting than it actually is. Everything looks neat and pretty once it's folded, but what happens in between?

By the time I take the laundry out of the dryer, place them in the clean laundry basket and head upstairs, I have taken at least five to 10 minutes to transport my clothes from one area of the home to another.  Next, I fold and put away the clothes. Recently, I noticed that I didn't have enough room in the drawer to place all like items together.

A few weeks ago, I searched for answers. I was familiar with the Konmari Method from reading Marie Kondo's s book featured below.


If you have been following me on Instagram, I recently uploaded a picture of clothes (seen above) that I folded and put away using the KonMari Method. In the drawer are 15 t-shirts, 4 pairs of shorts , and four pairs of pajama pants. These are my lounge/ sleep ware that I utilize often. The entire process took approximately 30 minutes to complete. I wanted to learn all the steps, so that I could fold and put away all of my clothes and purge (and thank) the one's that have served me well.

This experience was not only therapeutic, it was like having a spiritual experience. This small area of my home had positive energy and I felt that I could do more. I had a new appreciation for the items that I put away neatly in my drawers. My next project is to clear all the clutter from my closet and then tackle the book and paperwork.

Although I purge items seasonally, I hadn't taken the time to carefully exam all of the items that made it's way into different areas of my home. I too struggle with keeping clutter to a minimum and will continue to work on perfecting my skill.
