I’m in full Maria Kondo swing. This is funny because I have never, not once, watched her show or seen what she does in action. But I have heard about her so I do know she’s an organizer. And maybe I’ve just insulted all Kondo-ites with that over simplification.
But nothing she’s doing is news to me. We all have too much crap. Too much. Every time I throw some out or give some away more pops up like bad weeds. I’m determined this time to go full minimalist. Steve Jobs uniforms. Kanye West monk chic. Drive my car until it falls apart (which I already do).
It’s not easy in our society committing to this kind of think but then again it is. I’m so happy when I look out over counter space and see wide open expanses. I love it when there isn’t crap everywhere and I wish to Kondo people would stop giving me ‘free’ crap. Free crap is just that crap. Certainly cheap. Completely useless. And designed to clutter my life, home and mind. I wish instead of swag bags or party favors people would give to a charity. Any charity they are compelled toward…outside of the Human Fund.
All I ask is for the love of organizers everywhere – please don’t give me any more stuff!
