One Sunday afternoon, Rory and I both decided to do a major clean-up of our closets. I dumped a lot of stuff from a big trunk onto the floor of my closet and sorted through it. Then, I went through my dresser drawers and purged while also reorganizing their contents using the Konmari folding method. People...that junk works! I thought that my dresser was too small and that I needed to get rid of more things (which I did...) but I also found so much more space when I folded my clothes in neat little rectangles. I love opening my drawers now and seeing all the bright and beautiful colors jump out at me.
The next stop on our tidying marathon will be our books and papers. Lord help us, because I love to read, and I really, really, like paper. :) Have you ever tried to tidy specific areas of your home? What worked for you?
