What’s all the fuss about?

Not only does Kondo have a unique approach to decluttering, but she is also revolutionising the way people pack their cupboards with her space-saving techniques.

Kondo recommends folding clothes tightly enough that they stand up when packed vertically and storing them in drawers, rather than piles. This way, instead of digging through a pile of T-shirts to find the right one to match your outfit, you can see all your T-shirts at a glance.

If you’re wondering how to do that, here’s the KonMari guide on how to fold all your clothes.
