Rumor has it there is a show on Netflix starring Marie Kondo implementing her organizing method on ordinary households. Now I don’t know how you feel about her but I’m ready to binge-watch that show! Marie Kondo on an HGTV-Type program solving ordinary people’s organizing dilemmas is my kind of entertainment! I have her book, “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up”, have read it several times and given many copies as gifts. My daughter-in-law loved it, my daughter, not so much. It is life-changing if you take it to heart.
The overall theme of the book is if you have things from clothes to home décor that don’t bring you joy, then you should let them go! Give, sell, consign and toss until all that is left are things that bring you joy, or make you feel positive. Get rid of things that bring negative energy at your first pass, then work your way up to ridding your life of everything that doesn’t “spark joy”. She started as an organizing sensation in Japan and now she is renowned world-wide and has her own show. She’s quite successful because people get overwhelmed by their stuff and need help.
If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by your stuff, we have help for you at Finders Keepers Furnishings! January is National Get-Organized month, did you know that? We
have certified professional organizers lined up for workshops every Saturday in January to help you get motivated to clean out and organize your stuff! Each Saturday a different organizer and topic will be presented by a NAPO-Ga organizer (the National Associate of Professional Organizers of Ga.) @ 9:30 a.m. @ Finders Keepers Furnishings 2853 E. College Ave. Decatur. More information is on our website www.fkconsign.com and their website https://napogeorgia.com/ and click here for a copy of the line up.
Surround yourself with the things that bring you joy and bring us the things that don’t. They may spark joy for someone else and you’ll end up with some cash in your pocket. We hope to see you on Saturdays, seating is limited, standing in back is allowed. Cost is one canned good or $1 for the Atlanta Food Bank.
