I understand it might seem different, but I have never watched an episode of Mari Kondo on Netflix in my whole life. I haven´t even read her book, although I have considered gifting it to certain people I share a roof with several times.
The impulse to declutter my surroundings hasn´t been triggered externally, I have always had it. Not that I am a minimalist, but I prefer organized places and space around me.
My mother might now think back at me growing up and strongly disagree, so I will rephrase to: Ever since I moved out, I had the desire to have a clutter free surrounding.
With two kids though clutter just seems to manifest out of thin air, and that is not limited to kids stuff. No, quite the opposite! I feel like I spend so much time decluttering kids toys and picking up after them that my own stuff grows rapidly.

So, that low buy thing… How has it been going so far?
Well, thank you for asking! Pretty good, actually.
I admit I feel a little envious about all of you that finished a No Buy January and now are back in the game, credit card in hand, but if I am completely honest, I don´t really need anything. (Read about my Low Buy 2019 rules here)
Which is actually not entirely true: I DO need a new concealer. I only have one left, the Sephora High Coverage Concealer Natural Finish in Porcelain Rosé, and the reason I still have it is because it doesn´t really work for me. It is NOT high coverage, despite the name, and only lasts three to four hours when used to conceal spots.
