I first saw the new series on Netflix Tidying Up with Marie Kondo as another nanny type show. But I gave in and decided to check out an episode. Now I am inspired to organize my life.

I've been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix. It seemed like a silly show to watch at first. Why would I waste my time on watching other people reorganize their homes? But curious, I checked it out and discovered some great ideas to reorganize my own life. 

First of all I must tell you that my cabinets and I have never gotten along. I organized them somewhat when I first moved into my home, but they never stayed organized for very long, especially my bathroom and my Tupperware cabinets. I can describe them as toothbrush toothpaste makeup mess and my Tupperware cabinets as a mess of lids. I have had a really hard time finding the right lid for the right bottom. 

On the first episode Marie Kondo, organizer extraordinaire, helps a young couple with 2 young children organize their stuff. In this episode she brings over a box full of small boxes and containers telling the parents to use them to organize their kitchen cabinets. What a great idea and one I had never thought of doing myself. 

So, off to the Dollar Store I went and discovered my own treasure of really cheap plastic containers. Some as cheap as $0.25. I can tell you my cabinets look much better. One thing Kondo says about keeping organized is making sure everything has its own place. My problem is my stuff has always had an almost place but never a set place. 

Using containers has helped me define what place each item in my life has. I know where it goes so I can put it where it goes with complete certainly. It sounds a bit trivial, but I promise it has helped my life of keeping a house of 8 people more organized. Now the trick will be teaching my children how to do this. Guess I will have to watch more Tidying Up episodes to figure out how to do this, and tell my children they need to watch and learn.
