For years, Marie Kondo’s KonMari method has been the go-to for anyone looking to declutter their space and only keep items that, to quote the expert herself, “spark joy.” And according to insights from Australian moving marketplace Upmove, Kondo is still queen. The company analyzed TikTok hashtag views and found that the KonMari method has more than 94 million combined TikTok views, the most of any other tactic. 

But there are a few other trending ways to declutter that are gaining momentum, so if tidying by category and file-folding your T-shirts isn’t for you, one of these might be the key to corralling your chaos once and for all.

The One-Hour Method

With an impresive 40 million views on TikTok, this organizing process is exactly how it sounds. Instead of spending a whole weekend (or two) tackling your closet or garage, spend just one hour a day on a designated area. That way, you’ll feel less overwhelmed and more likely to keep up with your cleaning.

The Core 4

Coined by organizer Kayleen Kelly and with 23 million views on TikTok, the idea here is that keeping things neat only requires four steps, all beginning with the letter C: clear out, categorize, cut out, and contain. Together, they help you see what you have, edit, and come up with a system to keep things in order.

30 Day Minimalism

If you’re naturally competitive, this challenge is for you. Every day for 30 days, throw away or donate something per day. The catch is, as the days increase, so will the amount of stuff you have to get rid of (so you’ll need to toss one item on day one, two items on day two, and so on). Find a partner—a roommate, romantic partner, or coworker—and place a bet on who can make it the longest into the 30 days. Game on.

The “Move Out” Method

This quick brain trick will help you think of your belongings in a new way. Pretend that you’re moving out of your home on a decided day (in two weeks, for instance) and sort your belongings into “keep,” “donate,” and “toss” piles as if you were actually going to haul your goods across the country. By your deadline, you should have a whole new mind frame on what you actually need in your home.
