Thanksgiving is over, so most people are at least thinking about decorating their houses, if they haven’t started already. Personally, I’ve been impatiently waiting for Thanksgiving to come and go since late summer because I have boxes of holiday decorations that I want to put through the KonMari method of tidying.
I didn’t want to drag down the boxes in September, then put them away and haul them back out two months later. So I’ve been waiting to go through the boxes and handle each and every holiday item we own while asking myself, “Does this spark joy?”
By the time I’m done, I suspect my holiday decorations will take up half the space they do right now, and that’s going to be great. I’m open to adding to my collection, but only when the new item sparks joy.
