I’m a tidy person.
Almost an ‘anal retentive tidy’ kind of person.
|I like a simple, warm and NON cluttered home.|
So, this past Saturday the Coach was away….and there were no good movies to watch, so I settled in to watch a few episodes of Tidying Up on Netflix.
I’d heard of Marie Kondo; she did the talk show circuit a while ago promoting her latest book.
I recall her catchphrase: Spark Joy. Only have items that spark joy.
I kind of thought that catchphrase was bs.
Nothing in my closet really sparks joy….aside from my non-yoga doing yoga pants.
But, as I watched her assist people with tidying/organizing their closets, kitchens, their lives…..I must say, that kind of sparked something into me.
So, I did what she suggested. Kind of.
For your closet, she said to take out EVERYTHING and put it on your bed.
I modified this by taking one hanging rack and putting it on my bed. I went through all the items and really cleaned house.
Then I went through each drawer doing the same and then using her folding methods when putting items back in.
|My tank top drawer is phenomenal|
I realized something.
That little Marie Kondo sparked some joy into me. Especially the folding part.
|Even my workout pant, gym shorts, yoga pants drawer is a thing of beauty|
You can check her out on Youtube for the folding parts….ya know, if you are into that kind of thing.
I was really most impressed with my underwear drawer, but I’ll keep that one to myself.
Am I the only one who gets giddy from an organized nest?
