The Life-Changing Magic of Not Sparking Joy

Marie Kondo and her philosophy of tidying have exploded onto mainstream media. Her show on Netflix is inspiring millions of people around the world to declutter their homes.

We're long-time fans of Marie's work, and we have implemented some of her strategies in the past.

With that, the idea behind sparking joy, while inspiring, is not something that we agree with when it comes to minimalism.

In this episode, we breakdown the idea behind making decisions on things you should keep, discard and bring into your life, and provide an alternative to the question, "does this item spark joy?" We share a new concept that we have created based on the type of person you are and what stage of life you are in right now. Just like not every diet and work-out regime fits everyone, decluttering and minimalism approaches are also not a 'one glove fits all' style of approach. We discuss four different methods and demonstrate them with some tangible, real-life examples.
