Managing a household can be a daunting task, especially when you throw kids into the mix. Toys strewn across the living room, clothes piled high in the laundry basket, and a never-ending stream of artwork cluttering the countertops – it’s enough to make any parent feel overwhelmed. But fear not! With the KonMari method, organizing your home with children in tow can  help you feel less overwhelmed.

Here are some practical strategies that I have implemented in my own home with kids.

  1. Lead by Example: Children learn by example, so it’s essential to model the behavior you want to see. Take the lead in decluttering and organizing your own belongings, and your kids will be more likely to follow suit.
  2. Involve Them in the Process: Make organizing a family affair by involving your children in the decluttering process. Encourage them to choose which toys, clothes, and belongings spark joy for them, and which ones they can let go of.
  3. Set Clear Expectations: Establish clear guidelines and expectations for tidying up. Create designated spaces for toys, clothes, and other belongings, and teach your children to put things back where they belong after use.
  4. Make it Fun: Turn organizing into a game to make it more enjoyable for your children. Set a timer and challenge them to see how quickly they can tidy up their rooms, or turn decluttering into a scavenger hunt by searching for items that no longer spark joy.
  5. Celebrate Progress: Acknowledge and celebrate the progress you and your children make along the way. Whether it’s decluttering a small corner, a  closet or organizing a bookshelf, take time to celebrate each small victory together.

Now that you have some practical strategies for implementing the KonMari method with your family, you may be wondering how to get started. That’s where I come in.
