The kitchen junk drawer, do you have one? I open mine daily, but if I'm honest, it's usually just to grab a rubber band or a clip. The other things I use once a month, maybe, and should probably be stored elsewhere. There are keys (for the padlock?), finger covers (I cut my finger a year ago), a pencil, a corkscrew (we have two others in another drawer), a tape measure (that's handy), scissors (I use those a lot), matches (almost never), and nail clippers. Hmmmm, time to rethink the junk drawer. Marie Kondo says we don't need a junk drawer. I think she's right.
Marie Kondo is the author of the wildly popular book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It's a little book with a big message: less is more. And her technique for deciding what to keep and what to toss (or donate or give away) is inspiring. Ask yourself one simple question: does it spark joy?
If less clutter and less stuff leave space for more joy, I'm in.
