You know that whole KonMari Method?! I’m curious…have YOU done it with your closet?
So about 3 months ago I went through my closest + held up each piece of clothing + asked myself that golden question, “Does this bring me joy?” And guys, I was FLOORED at how often I made a stink face and said, “Nope.”
Like…I said that to pieces that I had once-upon-a-time shelled out a lot of money to get into my closet!! Pieces that, at the time as I stood there in Nordstroms, I just felt I NEEDED to have in my life!!
Well, at the end of this mildly traumatic KonMari exercise, I was left with more clothes in plastic bags than hanging up in my closet. And I felt a sense of…well…I guess you’d call it relief?! As in I had zero clue that my closet was secretly stressing me out!
I stood there looking at my newly bare closet and it hit me…all that was left were the pieces that I remember feeling an emotional connection to when I FIRST SAW THEM hanging on the rack or online. But when it came to many of the items in the bag…I don’t even remember buying them!
It’s like the difference between “love at first sight” and “how do you know my name again?”
So have you done the KonMari method and if so…was your experience anything like mine!??
