NMC016 KonMari Day 51
Recorded: May 4, 2016
Location: Albuquerque, New Mexico
Subject: Using Marie Kondo’s KonMari Method to downsize our house as we prepared to move onto a boat.
First, I owe you an apology. As I am working through these episodes, I realize there is a big gap between when the previous episode was recorded in March 2016 and this one from May 2016. So much happened during that time which I swear I documented. But the audio files are MIA (missing in action). So, we jump from the trip I took to Los Angeles with my husband, Nathan, for Chalene Johnson’s Smart Success Live event to being already fully immersed in the process of preparing to move onto the boat. Those missing 2 months were critical in our journey. At some point I hope to find the missing recordings. But for now, all I can do is apologize and carry on from here.
This week’s episode is all about the KonMari process. It was a system I first started hearing about at Smart Success. It is a decluttering process which is based on Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.” I used this system to downsize our home in New Mexico to move onto the s/v Dawn Treader. By the time of this recording, we were well on our way to that goal. If you would like to see just how effective that process was for our family, check out our Patreon page where I will post pictures of the bags and bags of stuff we donated.
More on our family’s KonMari process, including how it helped us improve other areas of our lives too, coming up in next week’s episode.
Have a great week everyone!
Lots of love,
