Have you heard of the KonMari Method of organizing your home?

Well, don’t tune out yet.

It’s NOT just for organizing your sock drawer!

In this post, I explain:

  • Exactly what this popular method of organization is
  • How it works – The 4 step process
  • How I have been using it to organize my entire homestead

I’m talking canning supplies, gardening tools, my pantry…everything.

Although I’m not done getting my home in order, I’m so excited about the results so far. So, I wanted to share how it is going with you.

Even if you have never heard of KonMari, you will eventually. So in this post, I demystify the whole thing for you so you can see if it might be something to try in your own home or homestead.

Now, if you would rather LISTEN to this info, head over to this week’s podcast episode.

To be honest, there is always more information in the 30 minute podcast than I can fit in a single blog post. So to get the full scoop, you should listen or read the transcript on the podcast page. It’s good stuff!

Otherwise, keep reading while I summarize the four steps of the KonMari Method below:
