How to KonMari Your Spending
Declutter Your Finances Using the KonMari Method
I love Marie Kondo's book "The Life Changing Method of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing." I'll be honest, my home is still a little cluttered but I do periodically go through and try to pare down my belongings. I just went through my old work clothes this week. Wow. There were a lot of items I felt I "needed" to hold on to "just in case" that in reality, I never wear anyways!
Did you know that you can use the same KonMari method to "declutter" your spending? We all spend money on things, food, and experiences that really don't bring us lasting joy. In fact, sometimes our spending is in direct conflict with the things that we say are most important to us. How can we use KonMari to pare down our budget? Start by reviewing your credit card and bank account statements while asking yourself the simple question "does this spark joy?"
Find out how this simple process can be applied to your finances to help you get a handle on your budget!
