Our clothes are our way to express our personality. Pile all your clothes from your cabinet to your bed. Touch them one by one and determine if they spark you joy. If you haven't worn some of your clothes for a year or so, it would be better to put it away, thank it for serving you, and donate it to charity or people in need.

Sentimental items are what bring us memories and remind us of the special people in our lives. These things are best organized in a box so you can easily find them and reminisce the moments you had with the people who gave them. If they are pictures, put them in a picture frame and place them in an area where you can see them most of the time.

Books are our source of knowledge and creativity. When you are about to organize them, wake their spirits up by gently tapping them with your fingers. Hold each book one by one and decide if it still gives you any kind of interest. If a book hasn't been read for a year, it would be best to thank it and give it away to someone who would appreciate it.
