Opruimen met Marie Kondo in 20 quotes

  1. “The urge to point out someone else’s failure to tidy is usually a sign that you are neglecting to take care of your own space.”
  2. “There are three approaches we can take toward our possessions: face them now, face them sometime, or avoid them until the day we die.”
  3. “People cannot change their tidying habits without first changing their way of thinking.”
  4. “The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.”
  5. “In essence, tidying ought to be the act of restoring balance among people, their possessions, and the house they live in.”
  6. “Now imagine yourself living in a space that contains only things that spark joy. Isn’t this the lifestyle you dream of?”
  7. “Effective tidying involves only three essential actions. All you need to do is take the time to examine every item you own, decide whether or not you want to keep it, then choose where to put what you keep.”
  8. “I recommend tidying by category, not by place. For example, instead of deciding that today you’ll tidy a particular room, set goals such as ‘clothes today, books tomorrow.'”
  9. “The best sequence is this: clothes first, then books, papers, komono (miscellany), and lastly, mementos.”
  10. “Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.”
  11. “Does this spark joy?” If it does, keep it. If not, dispose of it.”
  12. “If you can say without a doubt, “I really like this!” no matter what anyone else says, and if you like yourself for having it, then ignore what other people think.”

  14. “The objects you decide to keep, the ones that gave you the spark of joy? Treasure them from now on. “
  15. “Have gratitude for the things you’re discarding. By giving gratitude, you’re giving closure to the relationship with that object, and by doing so, it becomes a lot easier to let go.”
  16. “The point in deciding specific places to keep things is to designate a spot for every thing.”
  17. “After all, our possessions very accurately relate the history of the decisions we have made in life. Tidying is a way of taking stock that shows us what we really like.”
  18. “Books you have read have already been experienced and their content is inside you.”
  19. “Presents are not “things” but a means for conveying someone’s feelings. When viewed from this perspective, you don’t need to feel guilty for parting with a gift. Just thank it for the joy it gave you when you first received it.”
  20. “The act of folding is far more than making clothes compact for storage. It is an act of caring, an expression of love and appreciation for the way these clothes support your lifestyle.”
