If you’ve stepped outside your house in the last month, you know about the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Japanese organizational guru Marie Kondo. The gist (for those of you who live in a cave) is that if a possession doesn’t bring you “joy,” then toss. Reading this book has left all my friends with bare closets, a warm glow and ten pounds thinner. Maybe a mild exaggeration. “So what does this have to do with the graffiti wall, Cara?” Well, the dress I wore (see below) had been lying on my floor in the “No Joy” pile ready to donate. No, I have not read the book but through osmosis- or maybe guilt – have jumped on the Kondo bandwagon. However, Monday morning I picked up the very dress and it suddenly brought joy, lots of joy! What better color to wear? A white dress would be perfect! So, what I’m trying to say, is either read the book and toss your shit or write a blog and start using it.

Glad you kept cause it’s adorable. Book is on my nightstand now. Tons of shit about to be tossed up in here.
Your blog brings me joy! I’m ordering this book today. There is way too much joyless shit in my house. Ps I had no clue about the graffiti wall (and several other things you’ve posted) so thanks for keeping me in the loop!
My pilates instructor was just talking about this – she says it’s a must read and will change your life!! It’s on my list! 🙂
