Yes, yes, you read that right: for Help them tidy up their homes. And for Kondo putting order at home is the first stone for something more important: putting it in your life.

1. Organize only once and do it well. Nothing to do a little every day. That would make us slaves of our chaos and we would never end. For Kondo, "if you organize everything at once and not slowly, you can change your mindset drastically."
2. Get rid of everything that doesn't make you happy. It's that simple. Cleanings in space will make you see things much clearer. Also your chaotic bedroom.
3. Those that store are accumulators. And according to the author, "a chaotic room is the reflection of a chaotic mind." Nothing to keep things "just in case." Life is much simpler.
