The Kondo Phenomenon

I can’t help but laugh at the phenomenon that Marie Kondo has become. I can’t scroll through my feed without seeing someone sharing pictures of them tackling their messy closets or some truly laugh-out-loud funny Kondoing memes. She has ignited a fire in our culture to declutter and reap the rewards of a happier life. What is it about this that is so magnetic to us?

I agree wholeheartedly with how good a purging of my junk can feel, with the removal of each ill-fitting garment and unused gadget I am freer. All this brings light to two things that are suffocating our lives - the idol of materialism and the necessity of removing our junk to rediscover joy.
