Don’t let stress get the better of you – it is not only avoidable but quite beatable. Tidying up your space and freeing up more room by taking advantage of self-storage units will not only free up your world but will also spark calm and joy.
The Mari Kondo (Japanese tidying-up guru) goal is to help more people tidy their spaces by choosing joy. She is committed to developing the simplest and most effective tools to help you get there.
The KonMari Method encourages tidying by category – not by location – beginning with clothes, then moving on to books, papers,” komono” (miscellaneous items), and, last but not least, sentimental items. Keep only those things that speak to your heart and soul and abandon items that no longer spark enjoyment. Thank them for their provision – then let them go.
People around the world have been drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and forward-looking.
The Six Rules when committing yourself to tidy up:
Commitment is rule number one – undertake a commitment to tidying
Visualisation is powerful – imagine your ideal lifestyle and ideal space
Discard, discard, discard before you do anything. Throw out those papers and unnecessary chipped and broken items, and clothes that are either tired are way too small to wear
Never tidy up by location – instead tidy by category (books are usually everywhere as are photos etc)
Follow the right order at all times
Always ask yourself this question – does the item spark joy?
Free up space today by placing everything in the right place and decluttering things you will never at, use or wear ever again. It is time to store large items you don’t use regularly such as sporting equipment, beach umbrellas, and other items in self-storage units and you will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of space you create.
