Your Treasures In the Trash and the Myth of Tidying

Last week my husband shared this funny tweet with me about the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Either there’s a @netflix glitch or @MarieKondo’s methods have escalated. pic.twitter.com/yzfR1bbC69 — William Hanson (@williamhanson) January 20, 2019 Hilarious right?
