Home sweet home

I wrote briefly about danshari a few years ago. Since then, a Japanese woman has made a name for herself — and the idea of decluttering — around the world. (Just google “KonMari” and you’ll see what I mean.)

This article from Aeon talks about this woman’s influence and why we all feel the need to declutter:

“The reason we like the tidy feelings of home is evolutionary”

I liked the part about how it’s not just the product that’s important but the process:

“…the power of Kondo’s approach comes not so much from the final outcome (a tidy house) but from the process of tidying itself, which, as the title of her book suggests, has the potential to provide ‘life-changing magic’.”
