If you’re a parent to very young children (or you remember what it’s like), then you’ll be familiar with the astounding regularity with which everything needs to get washed over, and over, and over again.
As things cycle in and out of drawers and cupboards, sizes get mixed up and things get confused. Eventually, one morning, you’re standing, bleary-eyed, in front of the cupboard. What looks like thousands of pieces of clothing are overflowing drawers and shelves, and you yet you can’t identify any two items that would both fit and not clash. In frustration, you finally dress your daughter in fancy dress, because you’re too tired to think.
Then, one day, you stumble across the Marie Kondo (or is it Konmarie?) method, and you think, “Wouldn’t it be nice if my cupboards looked like an exercise in zen gardening?“
I tried the Marie Kondo method once before, with decent results, but maintaining it and applying it all the kids clothes is a different challenge.
