Most of you probably already know who Marie Kondo is and her revolutionary way of decluttering not just your home but your life. The petite Japanese organizing consultant gained popularity after she released her tutorial book on tidying up a few years back. However, worldwide recognition happened when Netflix released a series called Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. After the show has been released, thousands of households all around the world took notice and followed the KonMari method.

Here are some of the most important things to take away from Marie Kondo:

Category Organizing

You might lean on the idea of decluttering by room, but as per Marie Kondo, do it by category. She almost always encourages people to start with clothing because this likely has the less emotional baggage. Take ALL clothes out of the closet. Do not leave one box or one drawer left untouched.

Only What Sparks Joy

You probably heard about this catch phrase several times now. KEEP (or buy) ONLY WHAT SPARKS JOY. A lot of people think going by this rule is a bit on the cheesy side, but it actually does work for the most part. When organizing everything at home, hold items with both hands and ask yourself, does this spark joy? Whether it be an old sweater you've been clinging on to since College, or a blender you've not used for ages. Question if the item brings joy and usefulness in your life. If it does, keep it. If it doesn't - place on a throw/ donate pile!

Don't Let Nostalgia Rule Your Home

There is a reason why Kondo wants you to do it by category. To not distract you from reaching your goal. Which is to declutter your home and experience peace after. BUT if you get sidetracked by opening up an old box filled with memories, the decluttering might get suspended and you end up remeniscing about the past, in turn making it difficult to let go of what needs to be let go. So FOCUS. Start with clothes. Then purses. Then shoes. From there you can move on to the room decorations. Then books. Then maybe lastly, pictures and letters. Make the sentimental part of it all, the last part to tackle.

Envision the Home You Want to Have

Doing the decluttering is all well and good but there should be an end goal to what you're trying to accomplish. What kind of home would you like to have? Do you want a practical one? A minimalist one? At the end of the day, you need to be able to say to yourself - I am happy I get to go home to this place. Organizing and decluttering is what needs to be done to accomplish that.

Don't know where to start? Don't worry. Though the KonMari method is only getting big in the Metro Manila, our cleaning company aspires to help home owners breathe comfortably in their space and not feel like there so much going on here and there. You can customize a deep cleaning session with our team of friendly cleaners. We can help you declutter, throw and then organize your entire home.

__HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! __

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal clients who continue to entrust their cleaning service to our friendly cleaners. We started with a few cleaners in 2014 and have grown to a bigger group of lovely, hardworking and trust worthy cleaners. We aim to be able to clean more homes, offices and commercial spaces this 2019!

Now on to the real order of business: Post-holiday cleaning. We know it's no easy feat. Putting up the decors was exciting for sure, but the process of taking it down sucks. However, if you have a solid plan on how to do it, then it won't be so bad. Here are some of the things you need to remember when cleaning up after the holidays.

  1. Prepare boxes, plastic containers or resealable bags. When taking the tree down or the countless decors at home, you need to have a storage. This way, you can easily slide them under the bed or put back in cabinets.
  2. Prepare label. After storing decords on boxes, make sure to put a label on them so you don't confuse it with other things at home.
  3. Take a good look at all of the stuff you've used and throw away decors you are positive you won't want to use the following year. It's great to re-use stuff to save money but realistically speaking, if something doesn't look good anymore then it's time to bid them goodbye!
  4. When everything has been taken down, then that's when you begin cleaning the house. Tackle all areas especially under tables and sofas.

Sound easy? Sure. But what if you don't have the time to do any of these? Not to worry, Manila Maid is here to the rescue. Our friendly home cleaners will not just take down your Christmas decors and store it away neatly, they will also clean your home for you!

Living in Makati, BGC or Taguig? Great! We provide service in those areas without transportation fee.

Living elsewhere like Mandaluyong, Manila, Pasig, Parañaque, Eastwood? Don't fret, we provide a cleaning service in that area too! However, expect to be charged a minimal transportation fee on top of the cleaning fee.

xmas

Since holiday season has already started, well, at least in the Philippines where the longest Christmas holiday is being celebrated, we assembled 7 gift ideas you can give your messy friends that can get them a new year's resolution with a cleaner house on the checklist.

Organizers

For starters, there are many types of organizer like shoe organizer, accessories organizer, bags organizers, etc. that you can choose from. This can get your friend started in being a little less messy by put things into their place.

Tips before buying: it would be better to look for a space saver organizer for your friend who does not have enough space in their home and avoid gifting them with an organizer that is hard to assemble.

__Set of kitchen towels __

Gifting a friend with a set of kitchen towels is a good idea. Named as one of the most powerful kitchen tools with many uses aside from drying the dishes, and use in cooking, it can be used all around the kitchen for general clean up. A truly versatile one.

Tip before buying: see to it that the kitchen towel is durable and absorbent. And avoid buying one with the linen fabric and go for the one with a cotton fabric which is more absorbent and durable. Make sure to look for one which does not leave lint on surfaces.

__Key Holder __

This might be considered a type of organizer but just want to specify this item for a certain reason. It is not solely for a messy person but also for the forgetful ones. Just remind your friend to not forget where the key holder is located. What's great about this as a gift is that you can have it customized at a low-cost.

Tips before buying: If you are looking for someone who does customize key holder, you can try Artisan Mom. Their products are high quality but certainly cheaper than others.

__Portable vacuüm cleaner __

You may think this gift could be quite costly, hence giving it to a special friend or loved ones can be worth it if it can make their environment cleaner. The advantages of gifting cordless vacuum cleaner are that you will not be restricted by the cord while cleaning and have no cable clutter to worry about.

Tips before buying: There are many affordable cordless hand vacuums in the market today. Don’t fall for cheap ones especially if it is too good to be true. It easily breaks or has short battery usage.

__Microfiber Rags __

You might think that giving this type of gift is nothing extraordinary. But most of us do not know the power of microfiber rags, which contains millions of microfiber (acts like a big toothbrush) that helps, dislodge dust dirt and bacteria more effectively than the regular rags we buy thus making it easier for us to make our houses squeaky clean without using strong detergents that is costly and pollutes our environment.

Tips before buying: most of microfiber rags/cloth are sold in a bundle so you can buy them in different colors and your friend can assign colors for different usage.

__Spin mop/ automatic 360 mop __

One of the best gift Ideas for messy friends is a spin mop because they don't have to get their hands dirty while cleaning the house. What's great about this is that they can use it not only on floors but on tiles, walls, and ceilings too and after using it, they can just throw the head of the mop into the washing machine and voila, it's clean again and ready to use. You can also give your friend a tip like placing a quarter in the bottom of the bucket. When they can no longer see the quarter, it's time to change the water.

Tips before buying: choose the one with microfiber fabric for efficient cleaning and less detergent use.

__Book a Home Cleaning Service for your friend __

This could be one of the best gifts you can give your friend this Christmas. Since holiday season also means busy season with many parties to attend to, your friend may not have time to clean the house at all so being the best friend, you can book them a one-time cleaning service to get them started to have a clean home this holiday season.
