We set goals first and identify a desired completion date. This will set the pace and create a vision for your future life.
We address your belongings by category, not by room. There are five categories: Clothing, Books, Paper, Komono (miscellaneous) and Sentimental.
We learn what sparks joy for you. By handling each item you own you refine your joy sparking process and decide what you want to keep in your new future life. We do not look for things to throw away, we look for things to keep.
We declutter first and decide later if you need to purchase storage or organizational supplies. We will often use temporary containers that you already have until the completion of all the categories, only then will it be apparent what your needs really are. Then you can choose to upgrade or keep the temporary storage solutions.
