Was happy to read Susan Branch's post on "Tidying Up" via the KonMari Method!
Susan's Books On Amazon.com
Susan has a lovely way of expressing herself in her books and on her blog, and she even made the act of decluttering seem easy and beautifully done. You can read her post on her Marie-Kondo-inspired decluttering HERE.
I know I'll never have perfectly pressed dinner napkins like Susan, but still I love to read about hers as I dream of my "perfectly done" house on Someday Isle...as in "someday I'll..."
Whenever I visit Susan's blog, I'm always inspired to decorate with the things I have, putting out the everyday things we use and love rather than hiding them away in the cabinets.
The other thing I want to share has to do with Marie Kondo too!
Middle Daughter has "Kondo-ized" her house so much her children (Livvie 6 and Ben 9) have done (and re-done) the playroom so many times they've become experts at purging and organizing too.
Last weekend, the kids stayed Saturday night with their other grandma..."Nana"...and when Nana brought them home on Sunday she shared the following story:
Livvie noticed Nana's bottom kitchen cabinets were somewhat messy, so both kids got to work removing all the pots and pans.
After Nana chose the things that "sparked joy" for her, the kids organized the bottom cabinets and left everything clean and tidy.
Livvie Not Always Clean And Tidy!
Nana was (to say the least) very impressed with the job they did in her kitchen.
Nana laughed when she told Middle Daughter that Livvie even gave her a warning that she would be checking the cabinets next time she visits to make sure Nana is able to keep everything in its place!
The thing I love about Marie Kondo's book is that it inspires people to buy less, store less, and enjoy life more.
Thanks for dropping by!
