On . . . Tidying?

I'm reading a LOT of non-fiction this year. I'm actually working my way through Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

I'm loving the idea that we should only keep things that "spark joy," and that, once an item serves its purpose (even if that purpose was to show you that you didn't like/want/need it after all), it's good to let it go. It wants to be let go.

Sounds crazy to our Western ears, but it's making perfect sense.

And I actually organized our underwear and t-shirt drawers yesterday, so . . . progress. And then the 10yo saw and wanted to organize HER socks and underwear, and now she wants to read the book behind me (I'm halfway through).

This just might be the best eleven bucks I've ever spent. 

*fingers crossed*

Five stars, and it's not even over.
