Tackle Your Spring Clean with Marie Kondo

Enter our raffle to be in with a chance to win one of the world-famous Marie Kondo “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying” books.


If you don’t know where to start this year’s spring clean, why not try the life-changing KonMari Method? With millions of people de-cluttering their homes using this famous method, it is a great place to kick-off your spring clean.


The good news is that the KonMari Method isn’t only about organising your things. The ultimate goal is to turn your home from a place that can be stressful to one that “sparks joy.” As a little taster of the book, here are a few tips that Marie Kondo suggests to make this happen:

1. Commit

Before beginning, you must be committed to the task at hand. Once you fully commit yourself, you will be in a great position to tackle the necessary tasks and find that joy. 

Are you looking for a housekeeper? Find one in your area now.

2. Get rid of unwanted items

Once the things you definitely don’t want are gone, it will be easier to organise the things that you do want.

3. Think in categories, not location

This is one of Marie Kondo’s organisational pillars. Instead of going about your de-cluttering room by room, do it item by item.

4. Use the checklist

This system for simplifying and organising your home is described in detail in “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying” and should not be deviated from.

5. Spark joy

The main lesson from Marie Kondo is that tidying is not just about getting rid of things you don’t want anymore. The main purpose is to keep only the things that “spark joy” in your life.

So, if you want to tackle your spring the Marie Kondo way, don’t forget to enter our raffle!
