#1 Tidy in one shot, as quickly, and completely, as possible.
The first important thing is to set the deadline of organizing. Don’t think tidying is an everyday event, it’s a special event just like a festival.
#2 Sort by category, not by location.
It will never end if you try to tidy up in just one portion of the closet. The right way to do is to organize by category.If you decided to organize books, take out of all of books from shelves and pile them up in one location in your house. You’ll realize how many books you have. So you can decide which one you wanna keep, which one you get rid of.
#3 Does it “Spark Joy”?
This is the key word!! Many people always think first which one to get rid of, but much more important is which one you want to keep and live together from now on. And imagine how your body reacts to that moment, how you feel when you touch the items. So “SPARK JOY”, this is the reaction from your body when you touch the items you should keep.
#4 Right order of tidying
