I’m going to be moving sometime this year. The date isn’t set in stone, and we just recently put an offer on a house, but I have begun the process of getting ready for a yard sale in preparation for ridding myself of certain belongings that I don’t want to make the trip.
I spent an entire Saturday sorting through my clothes, purging what I no longer wanted or needed. In the end, I ended up with six garbage bags.
Throughout the process, I applied the Kon Mari Method to my decision making. If you’re not familiar with the Kon Mari method, it’s from the book, The Magic Process of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo.
In the book, Kondo tells you to pick up an object and ask yourself one simple question, ‘does the object you’re contemplating parting with bring you joy?’ If the answer is no, you get rid of it and if the answer is yes, you keep it.
