Tidying may seem like such an easy thing to do, but it's a lot more then just dusting, vacuuming, taking out trash and washing dishes. Shifting things from one room to another, or hiding things behind closets and basements does not solve the problem. As per the KonMari Method, cleaning is your confrontation with nature, but tidying is confrontation with yourself.
Here are some questions to ask yourself about your current house state:
So you may need someone to teach you how to be tidy because you might need the guidance, support and focus to really get through everything that you own. A KonMari Consultant will not judge you, and will help you to live the ideal lifestyle you want, and be that support you need to help you in your "joy checks" when you are deciding what to keep. Once you have finished decluttering then you will be taught how to organize your things so that everything has a home and you can easily find things. Once go through this experience, you will never have to purge your things every year, this will happen all at once and that's it. The process will however take some time and can't be achieved over one session, but through several sessions and in the long run will save you time wasted in the future.
You can also read the "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" or all the other books by Marie Kondo and try to do the entire KonMari Method on your own, but sometimes people don't have the time to read or to really push themselves on their own to start the tidying journey. Sometimes getting the help you need to learn this method will be a great investment for your overall well-being and life. Don't be afraid to get the help you need and to live life with more time to do things that matter.
