The Magic Art Of Tidying Up Fold Cheat Sheet

By GOOP 

Here in the states, minimalism isn’t exactly a point of pride (we like stuff, and lots of it), so it’s especially remarkable that Japanese tidying expert Marie Kondo’s brutally strict approach to de-cluttering took off here. The no-excuses elimination method, has spawned legions of Konverts who devote vast amounts of time to kondo-ing their lives top to bottom. The best-selling book that started it all is easy to digest (and infectious…you will literally start itching to toss stuff), though its central thesis is kind of hard to stomach at first: Unless you truly, deeply love an item, it has no business in your home. This means the first purging session can be rough, but the euphoria that comes with unloading a single bag of unnecessary clutter makes going H.A.M. on the rest of your space easy. We’ve laid out the basics below—along with an illustrated guide to her folding technique, which we found impossible to figure out based on the text alone. (Meanwhile, we gave it to some friends to spur donations for our annual goop closet sale.)
