Happy home, happy mind

Organising your home provides peace of mind, according to Marie Kondo (KonMari) from Japan. Kondo suggests you should discard anything in your home that does not produce joy and then acquire new items with care. Discarding items can make even small spaces functional and pleasant!


Savings: Your old items may be a treasure for someone else, and you can earn a lot of money by selling things. You also save a lot by buying fewer objects and clothes.

Remember this: It may be difficult to discard an item that has sentimental value even if you no longer use it. Donating items to charity for people who really need them may make it easier to throw things out.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Buying only items that you really need reduces your carbon footprint by 9% per year, equivalent to the emissions resulting from 4,900 kilometres of driving. Energy is saved when fewer items are produced.
