Feeling overwhelmed by the never-ending pile of clothes accumulating on that chair in your bedroom? Are your cabinets exploding every time you open them? Can’t find the matching top to your Tupperware?
If you’re anything like me, the answers to the questions above are yes, yes, and 100% yes. But, thanks to a new series on Netflix, you can become the organizational master you have always dreamed of being.
Tidying Up with Marie Kondo follows organization guru Marie Kondo as she visits the homes of everyday people who, like you and me, struggle to keep their homes neat and clean. She introduces them to the KonMari Method, which first made waves in the United States with the publication of Kondo’s first bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. The KonMari method teaches an approachable and methodical way to organize all your belongings: you decide what to keep, donate, and throw away all based on your emotional attachment to the item. Picking up a t-shirt and wondering if the item “brings you joy” seems like a strange concept at first, but it gets easier with practice.
Watch one episode of this inspirational show and I guarantee you will be assessing the joy each of your belongings brings you in no time. Perfect for the new year!
