Hi! I just watched the Marie Kondo series on Netflix (like apparently half the world did) and it got me started on my second round of KonMari-ing my house. A lot of people have talked about how clearing out the clutter in their houses has helped them feel better emotionally, but one of the things I was surprised to discover was that it actually helped my financial situation too. It really made me become intentional about the things I bought, especially when it came to clothes. Like, if I was looking at an item of clothing and I was on the fence about it, I would usually end up not buying it.
I've heard some people talk about how they sold their stuff on Poshmark, Mercari, etc., and I've done that too, but probably the most profound effect it's had on me is inspiring me to spend way less money, which has meant more money for my savings and less debt.
Has anyone else tried out the KonMari method and found it helped their finances in some way? If so I'd be curious to hear what your experiences have been with this!
