☆  method  方法


This week’s useful phrase is, “I love the KonMari method, have you heard of it?” I’m guessing that in Japan, everyone has heard of it, but in Australia, even though the English translation is a best-seller, not everyone has heard of her method.

For decluttering, I think that is one of the trickiest things – choosing a method to use. The 5-minutes a day method. The one item a day method for 365 days. The closet hanger method (when you turn all your coat hangers around to one direction, and then if you wear the clothes, you put the hanger back to the other direction. The you declutter the clothes you didn’t wear.) The 12-12-12 method – find 12 items to throw away, 12 items to donate, and 12 items to put away/clean up.

Of course, there are other methods, too. Too many to list here! Do you ever declutter? If so, do you use a certain method or just randomly declutter?
