Keeping select items within your living space and placing any other items, which may be of less significance to you, in our Exeter storage units could be the key to sustained happiness. At least, that’s the mantra of highly acclaimed lifestyle expert Marie Kondo.

That’s where we can be of assistance with our flexible, low cost self storage in Exeter! Read on to explore more ways in which you can find essential storage solutions using the most comprehensive and modern technique on the market!


Who is Self Storage Expert Marie Kondo?

Marie Kondo is a tidying extrordonaire, bestselling author, founder of Konmari Media and the star of Netflix’s triumphant show ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’. The show was launched at the start of January 2019 and has propelled Kondo and her space saving methods in front of the eyes of millions.

She established a tidying consultancy organisation when she was just 19 and attending university in her native Japan. Fast forward to today, and there are now 227 Marie Kondo consultants around the globe. In 2015, she was listed as one of Time’s top 100 most influential people, alongside celebrities such as Kanye West and Emma Watson.


What is the Konmari Method?

Many are adhering to Marie Kondo’s ‘Konmari Method’, a notion that encourages the eulogising of nostalgic, sentimental items and the discarding of items that bring little meaning to one’s life. In part, Marie has developed her tidying techniques from the teachings of Shintoism – the traditional religion of Japan that concentrates on the diligent and frequent undertaking of ritual practices.


An Excerpt From the Bestselling Author’s Book

When considering what to put away and what to keep in your home, Marie Kondo poses the question to readers of her book ‘The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up’, “Does this spark joy?”. She notes that having the correct mindset when interpreting if a possession really promotes added meaning in your life is central to the successful implementation of her method.

“When you come across something that you cannot part with, think carefully about its true purpose in your life. You’ll be surprised at how many of the things you possess have already fulfilled their role. By acknowledging their contribution and letting them go with gratitude, you will be able to truly put the things you own, and your life in order.

“In the end, all that will remain are the things that you really treasure. To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose.”
