How to Organize Your Blender Files, Marie Kondo Style [promoted]

If your are disorganized (as is 99.8% of humanity), your .blend projects may be getting out of hand. Now is the time to get inspired by Marie Kondo and use her famous tidying method!

Here are a few tips by the CG Cookie crew based on #konmari tricks to ensure your folders stay neat, organized and spark joy for years to come.


  1. Is not using the $ sign a new thing for the site? I mean it's clearly a paid course but I always felt the $ was a very open and transparent way of communicating that. Then maybe #ad at the bottom of the article if the site was paid to post. Promoted doesn't quite sell it as clearly IMO.

    (Though I'm a regular reader and love the site, just my 2 cents)

    • I do try to pay as much attention to the [$] as possible, but this is a freely accessible article, not a paid course.

      I'm using the [promoted] for posts that are made sticky for one or 2 days for extra exposure. Earlier this week I had a [promoted,$] for a sticky post that WAS for content that was pay-to-access. Do you think that's confusing?

      Such feedback is always appreciated, thanks!

      • Ah! My apologies! Sorry no, what you're doing makes total sense. That's my bad.

        I will say my knee jerk was that this was a paid course so I hadn't read the cg cookie article previously (though I have now) but to be honest that is more on me than the making convention. Perhaps "stickied" is another option for featured posts, or featured, however I take back the above. Apologies, and thanks for the information.
