The entire method is about keeping and cherishing all that you love by Asking yourself it if Sparks Joy!
I informed Anne that each category is approached by locating all items that fall within it, placing them in a pile and picking up each item to Joy check. When you’ve let go with gratitude those items that no longer Spark Joy, you are subsequently surrounded simply by what you love.
Having talked through how the KonMari Tidying Festival works, I checked to see if Anne had any further questions. She wondered how long each category would take? I informed her that most tidying sessions lasted 5 hours and that if the category wasn’t fully completed within this time, that ‘homework’ would then be set.
