Marie says that once you tidy up using her KonMari Method, you really don't have to do it again. And that's pretty much been true for me. My clothes and other categories I followed through on have never gotten out of control since using her method! That's a huge accomplishment for me.
Now, nearly a year and a half later though, I felt like it was time to go through my closet again. I was ready to experience a little more magic and let go of even more things. And who knows--- maybe this time around, I'll get through all the categories of items in my life.
While going through my clothes this time, I wasn't quite as thorough as I was the first time around because honestly, I didn't feel it was necessary. (If you strictly follow the KonMari Method, you take EVERYTHING out of your closet, drawers, etc by category put them in one central spot, and go through it all piece by piece, purging anything and everything that doesn't "spark joy". I did this the first time.) This time, I went through my closet and drawers piece by piece, but without putting everything out on my bed first. Instead of taking half of a day to "KonMarie Method " my clothes, this follow up session only took 30-45 minutes of my afternoon.
But look at all I was able to let go of today!...

|These clothes are ready to find a new person to love them!|
Ahh... Magic! It feels great.
