So many of you are watching or have watched “Tidying Up” on Netflix. For those of you who haven’t yet… it is a show about organizing and purging and organizing some more. What I really love about Marie Kondo’s style of organization is her patience and method of realizing what items in your home truly bring you joy. It is especially important to remember that those things that don’t bring you joy or aren’t truly sentimental, can leave your home.
I have always been a bit extreme when it comes to cleaning and organization… I like for things to have a place or purpose and if they don’t, they can go. I often purge and re-organize spaces in our home. I love to keep our home clean and organized because that is what brings me joy. I also think it is so important to love your space and enjoy it!
