So I have a little secret. Wait! Nothing like my Sneaky B secret (although she was a secret to us all) this is minor compared to that moment in life. This is a hidden secret.
99 percent of the time our home is picked up and relatively clean. Should you eat off my floors?- No. Could you pop in and I not be mortified? – YES! However if you open a closet I just might die of embarrassment. No really – it’s bad. See-
Did I just post these pictures? Wow. I mean really… the holiday closet if off the charts of crazy. (OMG I really can’t believe I just shared this)
Pause – side note- this is the only closet you can open. Our bar. We turned the random coat closet in the living room into a bar. Fun right!
Back to crazy.
I think about these disaster closets often; thinking “today during sneaky b’s nap I will clean out the office closet.” I get mental prepared, gather garbage bags and boxes. Then I open the door and think of 500 other things that I need to do more, close the door and walk away.
A few days ago I found this book “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: the Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo. Okay maybe I should find time to read this and maybe it will work. Maybe this is yet another form of procrastination? Of course it is. But maybe it will be “magic.”
After reading the book let’s just says it’s a little on the crazy side. A lot on the crazy side. I’m not so sure about thanking every item in my closet for the work they have done for me. I already feel I need a straight jacket somedays, this might just put me over the top. Then after thinking about it- maybe it will work. Truly Marie Kondo is famous in Japan. And her clients have had life changing experiences from her method of tidying up. And I do like a new “gimmick” Okay it’s on.
Tomorrow morning I start. NO this is not yet another procrastination. The books says it’s best to start working early in the morning when your energy and your things energy have been rested. So I take on my closet. I will share. We will see how life changing this is… fingers crossed
