Productivity & time management by tidying up: 10 tips for minimalism

Marie Kondo is very popular: “Only keep what you enjoy. Only have what you need ”is her cleaning philosophy. But apart from this radical clearing method, there are also good tips for cleaning up. 10 of them at a glance.

Marie Kondo meets the nerve of the time

No doubt about it: the Japanese lifestyle expert Marie Kondo, who ZEIT likes to refer to as a clean-up celebrity, has hit the nerve with her Konmarie method. Purism, as empty, bright rooms as possible are very popular and are considered a sign of wealth and education.

It is not helpful to sort the same amount of things over and over again: if you really want to create order, you should have as few things as possible. But that is easier said than done. Deflitting can also be hard work, also emotionally. And Marie Kondo's method is really radical.

A radical life relief

I am speaking from my own experience: I have separated myself from the majority of my books in recent years by several moves. I feel now really relieved.

In doing so, I realized: Consistent “bouncers” who can quickly separate themselves from superfluous things, it is generally easier. And another unbeatable advantage: Rooms that are tidied clean up faster - not only when spring cleaning is imminent.

What tidying up fails

A typical situation with it: The Aufjäumfieber breaks out and full of enthusiasm you go with the sorting. Despite good intentions, however, one repeatedly falls into the same trap: frustration and abandonment, because things do not go as planned.

For first, the first minutes of cleansing seem promising and the chaos seems to be clearing up. Then, however, you stick to individual things, sorts them after long hesitation roughly, but you can ultimately not decide for disposal. Often also a call comes in between or the pleasure lets go again. The sad result: everything is pushed together again and the chaos is bigger than before.

10 concrete cleanup tips

Only to keep what makes you happy, sounds good. In reality, however, we often face different constraints. Therefore, 10 More Concrete Cleanup Tips:

  1. objectives set: Each clean-up action should begin with specific goals. How should your home look like? Develop an idea, a vision, as concrete and realistic as possible. An inventory and the appropriate clean-up strategy are decisive for the successful removal action.
  2. The right strategy: Think critically: What was I really going to take away for a long time? What do I really need? Just look around in your four walls at first, but immediately and without compromise, you will be disconnected from things in which you see no other benefits.
  3. Be brave! Objections like "Maybe I can use it again someday" no longer count. Another prerequisite for successful mucking out: the right tactics. The so-called "jerk-jerk action" is concentrated, but has the advantage that it is sorted out in one go. The alternative: muck out something every now and then, need more time. But be careful - in this case you have to stay on the ball.
  4. Things to let go: Separate the important from the unimportant. However, if you can't decide to throw something away, just lay out a “flea market box” that you can store later in the store or basement. All things come in here that are no longer needed but are not yet ready for the trash.
  5. One after another: Who wants to clear out, should always follow the order. And that means: you start with the unimportant, the utensils without emotional value, such as dishes, and slowly work your way to the more emotional objects. And then, for example, it has to be decided: Are the old letters really still important for the feeling of happiness?
  6. First sort, then decide: First it is sorted. Later you can still decide whether you want to donate the things for charity, give them away or for little money sell want. Objects that are no longer useful go straight to the bin. You can dispose of excess household items and bulky waste at the materials yard. If you don't want to go to the bulky waste yourself, you can have the old stuff picked up. Get active, deal with it immediately, make an appointment. Do not postpone your project to an uncertain later point in time.
  7. One reason why we are struggling with clearing out: For some things, we have paid really money or think we could use you somehow. That is why we want to sell them at least.
  8. Resell: Sell ​​worn clothing in the second hand shop, at the flea market or use internet marketplaces. You can sell used books, CDs and much more by means of an online auction. Often, however, the effort is not worthwhile.
  9. Where to go with the rest? If selling is too much for you, then simply advertise in free advertising sheets that you have to give flea market boxes or furniture for collection. Ask friends and acquaintances if they can be used for certain things. Apart from that, facilities such as Caritas or youth centers are also well-liked for furniture. Hospitals and kindergartens like toys and stuffed animals. Books, in particular, are hollowed out like boxes.
  10. treasures: Then there are also treasures that simply contain too many memories to be able to separate from one another overnight. Pack things of importance in labeled boxes and first store them in the basement. As soon as you feel like “indulging in old memories”, you can go back to the old stuff. So for the time being, they have not finally separated, but they have provided more space in the living area.
