The KM method HELPS at TIMES for me, like with this PILE of jewelry I just worked through! I don't love it? then why keep it, was it a gift? it did the job, I DON'T have to keep it if I don't wear it! it is freeing on SOME areas.... However it is when I get to kitchen that we fight. And Komono is nearly EVERYTHING in my home LOL. YES, I really DO need the 4 sets of measuring cups... because I bake, and holidays are a thing, and no one wants water in the flour measure, they are not clutter to me HAHA. Seasonal pans and such are things I like to have.
Emptying my purse every night is a recipe for me forgetting an important thing that is supposed to live in my purse
my shampoo enjoys living in my shower hahaha
even though I had much yelling over the folding I still fold my clothes this way. I like the file not pile BUT I don't like how it is to put them away unless the drawer is empty. I've been debating letting that folding thing GO! Because, I've been doing it QUITE a while and that folds have not got any easier, but my old fold seems sloppy now, and they don't fit in the drawers as well
I wonder how much got lost in translation, and I wonder how much is like... "eccentric" "quirks" that might have been/could be helped with Therapy. Simply because she shares that she felt lonely, and basically worked to make herself useful in the home. She has made a great business out of it so more power to her. (speculation I am not a therapist)
I feel like most the BO who end up with kids who "just help because they are used to it" really just got blessed with BO kids! Because we are familiar with a story about kids who's mom DID the right things... and they still had a pigpen!
There are good tools there, but I also really don't like the "once and done" thinking, that is not how life works In my experience! I'm pretty sure she means that it is the same level of the declutter but STILL you do have to maintain!
TO ME most of the TIDY steps are things that you do when you have loads of time on your hands... and I say this after trying to do some of them for years HAHAHA
Ive gained a lot from trying to KM but some things just don't spark joy
