I've been waiting for a long time for my husband to help tackle some of these issues. Some of the decorative items, I had been holding on to since we had moved in, waiting for them to be put up. Going through these items I had saved showed me how little things had changed in our house since then and how much more needed to be done. It was immensely frustrating.
So the first thing I did, was go through and choose those items that brought me joy - items that I wanted to display in my home no matter what. After that, I thought carefully about each room and where I wanted to take it. My husband and I made plans for decorating the house throughout this year. We wouldn't finish all of the rooms, but we would finish those that were half done. Four rooms means one every three months. It will take time, especially once we have a newborn, but it will get done this year.

Are you taking part in the KonMari process? How did you find sorting through your decorative items? Did you rediscover something you really loved? Or have you found that the items you have been saving no longer fit in with your vision?
