KonMari Your Condo & Say Goodbye to Clutter

Blogs | March 10, 2023 By DataLand, Inc.

Have you heard about the KonMari Method? If you’re looking for a more minimalist and organized way of living, consider applying this method in your home. Developed by Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo, the KonMari Method focuses on decluttering and organizing your home by keeping only the things that “spark joy”.

At Dataland Incorporated, we understand the value of simple living, which is why we highly recommend the KonMari Method for condominium living. This method can help you maximize your limited space and create a more peaceful and harmonious environment.

Here are 10 tips for applying the KonMari Method in your condominium space:

1. Start by envisioning your ideal living space.

Ideal Living Space

Envisioning your ideal living space is a critical first step towards a decluttered and organized home. Before you start, it’s important to have a clear picture of what you want to achieve. Visualize a clutter-free, peaceful, and welcoming space that brings you joy whenever you come home.

With Dataland you get spacious, bigger unit cuts inviting you to a space ideal for the Konmari Method. Each nook and cranny are carefully thought of for space, design and storage.

This vision will keep you motivated throughout the process.

2. Declutter by category, not by room.

It is an essential Konmari method that helps you avoid the trap of moving clutter from one room to another and ensures that you don’t miss anything. Start with clothing, then move on to books, papers, miscellaneous items, and finally, sentimental items.

Focusing on one category at a time allows you to make quick decisions and see visible progress.

3. Keep only what sparks joy

This means that you should hold each item in your hands and ask yourself if it brings you joy. If it doesn’t, it’s time to let it go. This can be challenging at first, but it gets easier with practice.

Remember, your goal is to surround yourself with things that make you happy.

4. Store items vertically to save space.

Storing items vertically is a game-changer in small spaces like condominiums. It maximizes storage space and makes it easier to find what you need.

Vertical storage can be achieved through shelves, hanging organizers, or using vertical space in cabinets and closets.

5. Assign a designated spot for each item.

Assigning a designated spot for each item is crucial to maintaining an organized home. It’s important to have a place for everything and to put everything in its place.

This helps you avoid cluttered surfaces and reduces the time you spend searching for misplaced items.

6. Use clear storage containers to make it easier to see what’s inside.

Clear containers allow you to see what’s inside without opening them. They also protect your belongings from dust and moisture.

7. Keep sentimental items to a minimum

Sentimental items can be tricky to deal with, but the KonMari Method recommends keeping only the items that truly spark joy. This means being selective and choosing the items most meaningful for you.

Displaying these items in a way that makes you happy can help you appreciate them even more.

8. Focus on discarding rather than organizing.

Discarding is more important than organising. Once you’ve minimized your belongings, organizing becomes much easier.

It’s important to discard the items that no longer serve you to make space for the things that bring you joy.

9. Use furniture that can double as storage space, such as a bed with built-in drawers

Furniture that can double as storage space is a smart choice for small spaces like condominiums. Beds with built-in drawers, ottomans with storage, and coffee tables with shelves are all great examples of dual-purpose furniture.

10. Regularly reassess your belongings and discard what no longer serves you.

Your needs and preferences may change over time, and it’s important to let go of the things that no longer serve you. Set aside time every few months to reassess your belongings and discard what you no longer need.

The KonMari Method can be a game-changer for condominium living. You can create a more organized and harmonious living space by focusing on keeping only what sparks joy.

At Dataland Incorporated, we advocate for simple living and believe applying the KonMari Method can help you achieve this. Try it out and see the difference it can make in your home.
