I Thought This Show Would Inspire Me to Clean
I saw so many of my friends discover "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" during the pandemic, so naturally, I had to watch it again.
I was hoping for some inspiration, because last time, I started to throw things away and then I left a huge mess behind. Surely I would learn from my past mistakes right?
Basically, the show made me bring out things I never use and put them on display all over my home. This process takes time, but, my boyfriend has drawn the line. "How can you walk past this and not go crazy?
I thought that watching this show would make me clean my house out, instead, I have once again pulled everything out, and my house is a wreck.
"Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" follows the KonMari method is a system of simplifying and organizing your home. You do this by throwing out or donating items that don't bring you joy. KonMari teaches you to ask a simple question when you go about tidying up your house. "Does this item bring you joy?" If the answer is "No" you put it in a bag or box and thank the item.
The clothes, I can throw out, however, the art of sorting paperwork is what is really stressing me out. The Netflix show will tell you that a good thorough cleaning will help you find peace. I am here to tell you it has only caused tension with my boyfriend. The process takes forever.
Heed my warning if you want your relationship to be a smooth sail during a pandemic.
