Shop Every Episode Of Tidying Up To Spark Organized-Joy At Home

Solution: Specialty Containers

Again, tossing everything is not the key to a cleaner space — especially when it comes to sentimental items. If you have an overabundance of special belongings, start by organizing them with intention: “Focus on what you want to keep and how you want to store them, not what you want to eliminate,” Kondo suggests.

Investment pieces like expensive handbags can be streamlined by employing Kondo’s, “bag-in-bag,” method and completed by placing the stacked bags together inside felt baskets for safe keeping. For storing smaller sentimental belongings (like photos, jewelry, accessories, etc.), try placing the items upright inside patterned boxes or tins and placing them in a space that sparks visual joy.
