Konmari method

Do you know of KONMARI, who is a Japanese lady, and these days --- who has been named to TIME100/
I have her first book which I got before it became a million seller book.
And last week I happened to buy this book which is her third book.
Do you remember that I try to throw away 10 things a day?
Now I don't do that, however I try to continue to throw away 10 things a week.
(On the other hand these days every month Akari comes ten new things come)
My way is called "dan-sya-ri". It is another way to organize our selves through considering about our belongings.
And now it is the time to start Konmari method.
Dan-sya-ri focuses the place whether you find room or not.
Konmari method focuses the belongings whether you feel love or not.
Today I checked our entrance and bathrooms.
I don't begin on my clothes yet, though according to the book the first try is to begin on the clothes.
Today it's rainy, rainy season seems to come just around the corner.

I've heard of the book, but I haven't read it yet. I think I need her method to go through my clothes! I have too many clothes, but it is hard for me to get new clothes in Japan because Japanese clothes don't always fit me, or work on my body type.

I hope to get the book in English sometime!

Though it's Amazon.USA.

I have Konmari's book and I really like it. Of course, I don't have much discipline about her methods, but I will continue to try her ideas. Change can be difficult!
