Konmari Declutter: Clothes & Makeup | Get Your Life Together

Hi loves. In this week’s Get Your Life Together challenge, I’m decluttering my clothes and personal
items the KonMari way, based off the book:
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I love to declutter every few months – but at the end of the year I always find time to do
a major declutter so I can create space for new energy for the new year. By the way, there’s a giveaway at the end of this video, so make sure you stay until the end to find out more! First, I found this Konmari checklist
that I made years ago. if you want a copy of this checklist, I’ll leave a link in the description to
the blog post with the PDF. It’s still super helpful, to this day. For clothes, we start with tops! For those of you who don’t know,
the first step of the KonMari method is to remove all of the items from their usual storage and place them in a pile to sort through. Then you pick up each item one by one and ask yourself:
Does this spark joy? If it does, then you keep it.
if it doesn’t, then you discard it. It’s a bit tedious, but that’s how you make sure every item you own is valuable to you. At this point, I decided to put on a playlist, just some chill music so it doesn’t distract me
but I’m also not bored. Next we move on to bottoms,
which include pants, shorts & skirts. One of my dilemmas is when I find an item
that is brand new – I got it recently, haven’t worn it, or maybe
worn it once or twice – and yet I find that it doesn’t spark that much joy. It’s hard to let it go because I felt like
I haven’t worn it enough, and it’s a waste if I let it go. I usually decide to keep it so I can give it another chance and see if it can fit into a new outfit
that maybe I haven’t discovered yet. I’m curious: Do you guys experience this? If so, what do you do in this situation? Let me know in the comments below! After that: we tidy dresses, jackets & coats. Then, I’ll quickly tackle my socks & underwear
which I keep in these drawers. Then, my bras & swimsuits. Lastly I went through my hats. You’re also supposed to do accessories at this point, but I think I felt tired and I just wanted to move on to the next category. Here is the final discard pile for all the clothes I decluttered today. The next category in KonMari is books, but I don’t have many books at my apartment
since I read only ebooks now. The only ones I have are my favorite ones and those that have been gifted to me
by my podcast guests, so I want to keep all of them. Now I’m going to bag up my clothes
that I want to donate. I already had another bag of clothes I set aside from my last declutter, so here I’m just putting it all together. Next, I’m going to move onto makeup
and skincare products. I feel like people would be surprised to see my
makeup collection. As an influencer, I do get sent a lot of makeup
& skincare products – I know I’m very blessed. I feel very lucky all the time. But it does force me to go through
a lot of stuff on the regular. I always declutter right when I get a package – I keep the ones I like and set aside the rest
for donations. Still, I end up having a lot of stuff. I do love playing with colors so it does make me happy to have a lot of options for makeup. So here’s my discard pile for makeup. Next moving onto skincare. I use a lot of skincare products, skincare
is a major necessity for me. It’s one of my top priorities. Here I’m just going through everything that I have and seeing if anything is expired, or I just
won’t use it anymore. I found a few things to discard, but to be honest, most of my skincare products are brand new & unopened, I keep them in boxes in the cabinets. Here I’m just organizing all of the products I keep in my cabinets so that it’s less of a mess. So here is my discard pile of skincare items. Alright, so here’s the stuff that I’m gonna donate, We have the clothes from earlier, then these are new makeup that I’ve set
aside to donate. There’s foundation in literally all colors,
and an assortment of makeup in this box. I’m planning to donate all of this to women’s
shelter in downtown LA. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about you guys, here’s the giveaway of beauty & skincare
goodies that I’ve set aside just for you. I’ll pick one winner to win this entire
beauty & skincare bundle. We have some natural skincare products, a
selfie light, primer spray, a moisturizer, mask, eyeshadows, lipsticks, blush. Basically a lot of great stuff.
