Are You Tidying Up This Spring?

Written By: Chrissy Jarvie, Communications Lead

From trending on Twitter to being mentioned in TV shows and the news, even if Netflix isn’t your streaming platform of choice, you’ve likely heard the buzz about “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.”

The show launched January 1st, 2019 and stars Japanese organization expert Marie Kondo. The series is inspired by her 2014 best seller, “The Life- Changing Magic of Tidying Up.”

The show follows Kondo as she visits homes, sharing the “KonMari” method of tidying up and tackling clutter.

The method is simple to understand: divide your belongings into categories, then examine each item individually. If the item brings you joy, you keep it and if it does not, you give thanks and donate or discard it.

The concept, book and show have inspired individuals across the globe including some celebrities, to revisit their closets, homes and garages in hope of achieving a simpler life, or at least a tidier home.

As the seasons begin to change and we look forward to relief from the bitter cold, many of us will begin the process of spring cleaning.

The sometimes dreaded task of deciding what to keep and what has to go is made better at the thought of bringing out the shorts and sandals, and packing away the parkas and boots.

Regardless of the method you choose to tackle your next big clean, in Caledon, there is a special place to bring your gently-used and previously loved items: Evolve Clothing and Evolve Lifestyle stores.
