Put away your Marie Kondo wardrobe

Before putting away your Marie Kondo wardrobe…

A harmony of colors and the air of a box of macaroons: you can recognize clothes arranged in the Marie Kondo way at first glance! With her book sold in millions of copies and translated into 35 languages, Marie Kondo, a famous coach in the art of ordering her Japanese bazaar, offers a foolproof storage method for the whole house. Durable and effective, this method called KonMari method promises to overcome chaos in the dressing room ... provided you follow scrupulously the 10 commandments recommended by Marie Kondo. For a square dressing room, you will store all your clothes at once. Do not think to fold the case in a few hours. Before starting, we will take care to turn off the music and the TV to focus on the storage of the dressing room ... and only on the storage of the dressing room.

The KonMari method for sorting in your closet

Before attacking the storage of the dressing room itself, let's start with sorting in the wardrobe . To the age-old question "What to keep? What to throw away", Marie Kondo recommends keeping only the clothes that provide an irresistible "spark of joy". Review each of your garments and answer the question "Does this garment make me happy?" - The answer is yes ? Keep it ! - The answer is hesitant? Marie Kondo recommends separating you from the clothes you keep "for the memory" or because "it may be useful one day". - The answer is no ? Marie Kondo advocates the trash. For our part, we suggest that you give away or recycle your old textiles in furoshiki. Once sorted, gather the clothes you have left in a heap in the middle of the room and roll up your sleeves ... Let's go for the folding session!

Keeping only the essentials is Marie Kondo's secret for a tidy wardrobe.

Fold your clothes in a rectangle, vertically

The secret to a square dressing? Transform your clothes… into a rectangle! The storage guru shows us that it is better to store your clothes upright, rather than stacking or hanging them, except for the dresses, suits and coats that will find their place on a hanger. Folding clothes according to the KonMari method allows you to: - Identify all of your clothes at a glance, - Find this sweater which you had forgotten existed, - Save space, - Abolish the suffering of the crushed t-shirt at the very bottom of the stack, - Stop threatening the balance of the stack as soon as you try to grab the crushed T-shirt at the bottom. If you decide to follow the KonMari method to the letter, you may suddenly start talking to your clothes to show your gratitude and love. And there you say to yourself: they fell in love with the editorial staff dé! No, read on…

The case of tops and pants according to the KonMari method

We first spread our clothes on a flat surface, then we fold each side towards the middle to meticulously transform each piece into a compact rectangle that we make stand upright. To fold your clothes like Marie Kondo, a few workouts will not be too much. T-shirts with short or long sleeves are the simplest pieces to fold. We fold each side towards the middle before folding in three. And oh magic: it stands up (yes, well, maybe not the first time). For sweaters and sweatshirts, the logic is the same except that depending on the size of the mesh, we will adapt in two or three plies. The sleeves must not protrude. For the pants, we take care to superimpose the two legs in a straight line then to fold between the two legs before performing a folding in half then in three.

Folded in a square and placed vertically, the t-shirts take up less space!

Put away the underwear and organize the dressing room

The underwear is not to be outdone. The bras are stapled and then placed one behind the other, straps inserted inside the shells. Ball socks? Don't even think about it. Marie Kondo recommends folding tights, socks, socks and scarves using a very specific folding method. Of course, tidying up your Marie Kondo wardrobe inevitably comes up against a lack of drawers. To remedy this, the shoebox is the ultimate storage of the KonMari method. All you have to do is fill your shoe boxes with your clothes folded with four pins before placing them on the shelves of your new dressing room worthy of Carrie Bradshow in the American series Sex and the City.

If you lack drawers or shoe boxes, opt for storage baskets.
