There is not a right or wrong answer to this key question. Responses will vary by how each individual finds joy through different objects. In our KonMari Consultant Certification Courses, we teach the participants the importance of not feeling like you need to make “the right choice,” but rather, the choice that sparks joy for the individual. To determine this when tidying, pick up each object one at a time, and ask yourself quietly, “Does this spark joy?” Pay attention to how your body responds. Joy is personal, so everyone will experience it differently. I like to describe it as a little thrill, as if the cells in your body are slowly rising. In the KonMari Method™, your feelings are the standard for decision-making, which is what sets this methodology apart from other tidying techniques that rely on strict guidelines instead of personal criteria.
