As a thrift and consignment store, we LOVE the Marie Kondo effect. Not just because we’ve been receiving some amazing KonMari’d goodies (check them out!), but because the KonMari method has also helped us crush our spring cleaning game at home. As you decide what stays and what goes during your spring cleanout, we’ve got some KonMari-approved tips for making space for items that spark joy. Read on!

While it would be nice if we could just toss all our shirts in a drawer and have them magically fold themselves into neat rows of bliss, that’s not going to happen. The next best thing is taking a page from Marie Kondo’s book and learn how to fold them correctly. Not only will they fit nicely in your drawer, but you’ll be able to see them all at a glance. No more digging to the bottom to find the one you’re looking for!
