Clayton and I moved into our new house and have diligently worked to get unpacked before vacation.
Action Plan Progress:
- DONE – 6 weekly posts shared
- DONE – Completed discarding and packing by Thursday, 12/10/2015
- DONE – Posted about storing techniques
- DONE – Kept a photo journal
Incentive: I’ve already found a new cleaning service in Red Wing and hopefully we can get them started in January!
One idea I tried to keep in mind while unpacking and storing was that everything should have a place. I left nothing unpacked, and it feels good to be surrounded by the things that spark joy.
Below are pictures that highlight the techniques suggested by Marie Kondo.
There was no part of this process that was simple. I think the fact that we were moving made it easier to keep moving forward. My favorite part was rediscovering things that do spark joy that have been stuck in boxes!
6 Month Goals:
My only goal is to ensure I ask myself if something sparks joy before purchasing it.
Please share your KonMari success stories in the comments!

Your photos are so inspiring! Your book cases look wonderful! I loved the clothes section and have dipped my toe in the books. I need to be better at thanking books for serving their purpose and sending them on to their next home. 🙂
Since I started using the library it’s been easier for me to not feel as attached to books. It’s still hard though. 🙂
