It’s a new year, and that means it’s time to get organized. Imagine how much easier your life would be if your home were organized. It might seem overwhelming, but you can get your home in order with the help of the KonMari Method. This method was created by organization expert Marie Kondo, and it will change your life.
Determine What Kind of Life You Want
It’s hard to start organizing until you know what kind of life you want. Where do you see yourself in a year? Creating a goal provides much-needed motivation.
Review Your Belongings
Next, it’s time to start getting rid of items. Start with each type of item you own. For instance, bring all your clothes out into an open space. Review the pieces one by one, asking if each one fits into the goal you visualized. If it doesn’t, it’s time to get rid of it. If that is too overwhelming, break the items into categories. For instance, do pants one day and tops the next.
Organize Your Drawers
Are you constantly rifling through your drawers, trying to find something? Marie Kondo recommends standing the items up vertically in the drawer. Then, when you open a drawer, you can see everything inside of it.

How to Deal with High-Traffic Areas
If you’re like most people, high-traffic areas are the messiest and most disorganized parts of your home. Let’s start with the bedroom. Kondo says you need to make your bed every morning or your bedroom will feel like it’s in disarray. That simple task will help your bedroom look and feel much more organized.
Now, let’s move on to the bathroom. Keep items off the sink since you don’t want anything to get wet. Simply keeping items off the sink makes the bathroom much easier to clean.
The entryway is another high-traffic area. Make sure you have a spot for each item that you need to leave the home. Having a spot for your keys, sunglasses, wallet, and other items means you won’t leave them around your house.
Once your home is in order, it’ll be time to take the next step and get your vehicle in order. That means it’s time for an upgrade at Berglund Automotive in Roanoke, Virginia. Your new vehicle will get you everywhere you want to go in 2019 and beyond.
