Do you tidy like Marie Kondo? If you fell for the KonMari method back when she first hit our TV screens, you’ll be familiar with the rules for tidying. But just in case your focus has slipped a little since your first Marie Kondo-style decluttering and organising efforts, here’s a little reminder.
First, you need to discard before you tidy. Keep only the items that spark joy. You should also tidy by category, and within your category items of similar uses and similar sizes should go together.
All of which brings us to: your undies. Marie has shared on Insta the approved method of storing bras and pants, and we can see its total adherence to the tidying rules. Undies are a category, the bras (similar size) go together, the pants (similar size) go together... As for the joy part, Marie explains, ‘Undergarments may be invisible from the outside, but should be stored in a joy-sparking display because they come in direct contact with your body.’
Your mission? Sling out the washed-too-many-times, greying or fraying in your underwear collection, as we can guarantee they won’t create a display like Marie’s and nor will they be sparking joy. Then, once the discarding is over, keep your remaining bras and pants in the Marie Kondo-approved fashion shown just below. We’ve found some brilliant organiser dupes to get you started, then head to our storage hub for more tidy ideas.
