The KonMari method inspired a myriad of people how to “spark joy” by tidying up clutter. But did you know that this process can also be practiced on money? Here’s how to use the KonMari method on your finances:

Commit yourself and set a clear image of your goal
Before anything else, envision what your goals are. If you are planning to have a new car or house, or perhaps a clear balance on your credit card, you should start by visualizing them. By creating a mental image of what you really need, attaining it will be effortless.

Proper sorting
Sorting through categories such as books and clothing is the core of Kondo’s tidying system. Use the same concept on how you spend your money and divide it into three main sections: wants, needs, and savings.

Establish money management
Deduct paperwork and try automating payments for bills. This saves you from missing a payment by mistake. Going digital also means old financial statements are no longer necessary, so it’s fine to get rid of them.

Following these tips is great, but focusing on your objectives is paramount. Begin organizing your funds and it will surely spark joy!
