“channel your inner captain of woo-woo bullsh*t”

I’d never even heard of the life changing magic of tidying up: the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing.  Probably because no one in my life thought for a single second that this book would be an appropriate gift for me.  But reading this woman’s post detailing its insanity methodology had me rolling on the floor, so I thought I’d share.

“When I picked up Marie Kondo’s book, it was mostly out of curiosity.  What was this magic?  Did it involve an army of tiny elves who might follow my children around putting away discarded toys and nagging them about grinding bits of snack into the carpet?…

At first Kondo made some kind of sense.  According to the KonMari Method, everything in your house should have a place.  We all need less stuff.  Throw shit away.  Yep.  Got it.  I started dreaming of garbage bags full of old birthday party favors and stuffed animals, parading to the curb.  But then it got weird, like that one relative who believes in the sanctity of crystals and just won’t shut the hell up about it.”

    • Hey, at least you’re still trying. We’ve got two decades of trying to work it out here — just entered a renewed phase of “sure, we can keep this cleaned up!” Wonder how long this one will last…..
