Having the perfect home isn’t just about building an extension at your Liverpool property and sitting back to let it look after yourself – you’ve really got to make an ongoing effort to ensure that your home remains your castle. And because we lead such busy lives these days, this can sometimes become a little bit overwhelming and be a little on the tricky side to fit everything in.
Which is why you might want to check out Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix, a series of inspiring home makeovers by the tidying expert herself which aims to help you ditch the clutter at home and embrace joy at the same time. Best-selling author Ms Kondo actually launched her tidying consultancy when she was just a 19-year-old university student living in Tokyo. And now she’s world renowned, helping people all over the globe transform their cluttered little houses to create spaces of inspiration and serenity.
You might also find her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, of interest as it will apparently help teach you that if you simplify and organise your house just once, you’ll actually never have to do it again… and, as we all know far too well, that’s the dream! Imagine never having to tidy up ever again – what will you do with all that free time? The world is your oyster, as they say!
The first episode of the Netflix series focuses on a couple with two young children who are struggling to find peace at home with all the clutter that comes with having kids. They’re shown how to keep this mess to a minimum, keep their kitchen organised and sort clothes properly so they can enjoy home life a lot more.
If that’s not applicable to you and your living situation, what about checking out episode two, where Ms Kondo helps a retired couple take control of their spaces by cutting back on clothing, display family photographs effectively and store their Christmas decorations.
And then there’s episode three, where Ms Kondo helps a family living in a small apartment set up their own temporary storage solutions and make more effective use of cabinet space that’s difficult to reach.
Episode seven, meanwhile, will likely be of interest to anyone out there planning on having a baby soon, since it tracks the progress of an expecting couple getting organised where their shoes are concerned, as well as enjoying help with folding socks and dealing with a huge mountain of accumulated paper.
We’d love to hear if you have any tips of your own for keeping your living spaces properly organised – or if you’ve already watched the show and found it really has helped revolutionise your life. Get in touch with us today!
