Whenever I am feeling lost or in need of direction I do one of three things: call my mom, drink wine with my girlfriends, or go to the library. I needed some insight so a trip to the library was in order! With three kids in tow, we made our rounds through the children's department and finally ended up at the Self-Help shelves for me.
I first heard about the KonMari Method in the spring of 2015. As a person who likes to be organized and try out different methods and techniques to organize my belongings, this was an interesting approach. I bought the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and read it with zest. This book, in a surprising way, teaches you to accept who you are today and to allow your physical possessions to reflect that person, rather than the person you tried, wanted, or even dreamed to be.
