I read a book about tidying up. And I liked it! Konmari

I recently read a book about tidying up.

That must sound incredibly boring, but it was just the opposite. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo was recommended to me by a friend. It's also a New York Times best-seller.

Tidying up isn't just about the physical act. It clears your mind and lifts weight off your shoulders. It's spiritual.

There's more to it than you might first realize. Some of the main points are to only keep things that you love and to store things either in boxes or vertically like books on a shelf.

That's an oversimplification, but I love the idea of storing clothes vertically in your drawer. The reason is that you can visually see each item and it's still reasonably space-efficient.

One day I'll tell you guys more about Marie Kondo's method for tidying up (she calls it the "Konmari" method). For now, check out this video of how Marie folds clothes. This is how I do it now.
