I read this article via Cup of Jo about Marie Kondo and her approach to cleaning and organization. I always feel better when things are organized, clean and uncluttered. I’d like to say my house, my life is always this way, but that would only be me wishing out loud.

Marie Kondo’s approach is to take out each item and assign value to it. If it doesn’t bring you joy, throw it out. A couple years ago when I was obsessed with reading articles on minimalism, I read a post of someone who called the police after they were robbed. The police came and thought the couple had been wiped out, but only a broken window and laptop were evidence of the robbery. I’ve never pared my stuff down that much nor do I really want to, but I like the idea of assigning value to the things I love and getting rid of the things I don’t.
