{Konmari} Ugly blue takkies

Here’s just one of the reasons I love the Konmari method. I’ve been telling myself I need to get rid of these old takkies (sneakers) for years.

I’ve probably had them for 8-9 years and they’ve been all over the world so they’re not the very prettiest takkies I have at the moment.

I kept taking them out to donate them and I end up putting them right back with my shoes.

But then I read that book and I realised why I don’t seem able to get rid of these shoes.

They spark JOY!

Once I realised that, I happily wear these not-so-pretty shoes on my photowalks and they bring me much, much joy.

Is there an item of clothing/ houseware, etc. you think you should get rid of but you really love for no good reason?

  1. I have a kaftan my friend gave me in 2002 or was it 2000 🙂 and no matter what I just can’t get rid of it! And I still wear it at least 2-3 evenings a week just the most comfortable dress. My siblings think I’m crazy and Y has given up. I think my friend would probably be shocked I still have it. In my defence it went “missing” for about 3 years
