My biggest goals for the summer revolve around my home this year. I recently read Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and so I am KonMari-ing the house this summer. I had no idea the book was an international sensation when I bought it on Audible. I really just happened upon it, and given the fact that my bedroom has become the stash-and-dash "junk drawer" of the house, I knew it was time to try something completely new.
This may surprise you---I guess people generally assume librarians are completely organized-by-nature folks--but I have a REALLY difficult time organizing my space. Books? No problem. My home? Different story altogether.
I tend towards sentimental and I like "stuff." I have many interests (crafting, photography, reading, cooking, genealogy, writing) and I have stuff hanging around in each of these categories. The time has come for a thorough cleaning up. Okay, the time came a while back---but it is so HUGELY overwhelming to me...much easier to procrastinate!
Until now...Marie Kondo gives us a very detailed order on how to do this thing, and this summer I am ON IT, baby.
I'll keep you posted...but I'll tell you this. I already feel lighter, and my drawers are already more lovely.
