We all know January is for fresh starts, organization, planning, goal making, and everything else that comes along with that great feeling that the New Year brings. But this year, everything seems to be in overdrive with the release of Netflix's newest show - Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Each episode, Marie Kondo, a tidying and organization expert, goes into a home and helps them de-clutter their lives and home. It's addicting, to say the least, to watch these extreme transformations. And you get the instant gratification of seeing someone else's whole house organized in about 30 minutes. This show, as well as Marie Kondo's best selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, has influenced people across the world to organize, declutter, and tidy. We've jumped on board and have been stocking our own shelves with plenty of great organization products that will help you "spark joy" in your home!
According to Marie Kondo, the best way to tackle your tidying is in the following order: Clothes, Books, Papers, and then Komono (miscellaneous items). We've picked a few of our favorite Laura of Pembroke products for each of these!
Marie Kondo has a very detailed method when it comes to folding clothes and clothes storage. Once you get the hang of it- it's pretty addicting and very visually pleasing to be able to SEE all of the clothes in your drawers rather than digging through dressers to find something. We gave it a try, and if you ask us, there's nothing prettier than a Laura of Pembroke dresser packed with great Laura of Pembroke sweaters and jeans collected over the years!
If it's not just your drawers that need a makeover but your whole bedroom, you can shop all of our dressers and nightstands including the ones shown in this post!
A bookshelf is a great place to start, but there are always those extra books and magazines that need a place, too. The acrylic trend is still going strong for 2019, and we've fallen in love with this adorable acrylic tool bucket. It can be used for so many different things!
PapersIt's pretty easy to let a few days (weeks... months...) go by and before you know it you can't see the top of your desk because it's piled with papers that need sorted. Having an organization plan in place before you get to this point is key! Having a place for everything will help avoid the "paper mountain". Try a desk organization system like this soft pink Desk Organizer Set!
We've also stocked up on all of our favorite desks for you to get your home office (or office-office!) ready for a productive year!
For all of the "miscellaneous" in your life (and house!) we've got you covered. Sometimes it's not just about the simple task of organizing, it's about making your home aesthetically pleasing.
