Surprise! This housekeeping nemesis turns friend in our konmari.

It is a foe in every other housekeeping context. It never stops layering and slathering anything we have not touched. It points to our housekeeping abilities or more specifically our lack thereof. It is our nemesis. We wonder what IKEA must do at night to keep it so under control in their furniture showrooms when it is so plentifully and generously applied in our homes.

One year after konmari

Yes, my home truly is tidy. There is no hidden mess. Nothing is stashed anywhere “until company leaves”. My attic and garage are almost empty. There is also no mess in my master closet, hall closet, coat closet, all drawers, and all cabinets. Pre-konmari, these areas were stuffed to capacity and I had no idea what was in them.
