The KonMari Method, from Marie Kondo's eponymous Netflix show and book, has seemingly taken over the world. Everyone from your dentist to your great aunt Sylvia is clearing out the clutter using Ms. Kondo's rules. It can be pretty liberating getting rid of all the hodgepodge littering your living space (Confession: I needed a word that wasn't clutter, so I used the thesaurus, and hodgepodge made me giggle).  Maybe it's time for you to stop binge watching her...
