Pros of the KonMari Method

  1. Decluttering in one shot allows for immediate transformation: If you tidy a little at a time, you would tidy forever because you wouldn't see the drastic results.
  2. Sorting by category instead of by room can save you time.
  3. The emphasis is keeping only what "sparks joy": Will help you better decide what to keep, and also give you a greater appreciation for what you have.
  4. You let go of your stuff with gratitude for the usefulness they served

Cons of the KonMari Method

  1. This process may not be realistic for larger spaces or families: This guide is written from the point of view of a single woman in her early 30's who lives in a small flat in Japan.
  2. Category sorting may not be as effective if you have a family.
  3. Untagging clothes and immediately hanging them in your closet doesn't always make sense.
  4. The book doesn't address how to deal with children's toys.

KonMari is not full-proof

If you're single, or a couple with a small pet in a tiny apartment it may work. But if you're a large family in a larger space you'll have to pick and choose what works otherwise outsource some of the work.
