I’ve been hearing about Marie Kondo lately. She’s a guru of tidying up and has a show on Netflix (along with several books) that is all the rage these days. So I thought I’d give it a try.
Forgive me for being a bit snarky on this but, isn’t what she does just basic common sense? One of her tips is to use boxes to organize some of your stuff. BRILLIANT! I would have never thought that we could use boxes to organize shit. Granted, I usually don’t take a moment to thank the house before cleaning. I watched about three episodes before giving up (they were basically the same show, different people) and maybe it’s because the people she is helping out are borderline hoarders who need somebody to tell them that they have too much shit. I dunno. The idea to only keep things around you that spark joy is a lovely sentiment but stupid in practice. A can opener really doesn’t spark joy for me, yet, I kinda need it.
I can’t believe we need a Netflix show now to teach us how to tidy up a room. I need more coffee.
