I Can’t: Organize My Home hosted by Mac & Cheese Productions

September 20, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Mac and cheese productions KonMari

I Can’t: Organize My Home is part of Mac & Cheese Productions I Can’t series, where adults state they’re unable to do something, they try it with a bunch of other adults who also “can’t,” and everyone proves themselves wrong and not only does the thing, but enjoys it and says, “That wasn’t so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What’s next?!” As in camp, topics and structure are varied but the “be yourself amongst others being themselves, witness the magic that happens when you try with others trying” vibe is pervasive. Past “I Can’ts” have included yoga, improv, drawing, have a dog, financial planning, and buy a home. Future “I Can’ts” include put on makeup and ask for money.

For this edition, Mac & Cheese is partnering with Chicago’s first certified KonMari Tidying Consultant, Kristyn Ivey of For the Love of Tidy. She’ll share home organization tips that focus on what you keep (does it “spark joy?”), rather than what or how much you discard. Learn about the revolutionary Japanese decluttering method made popular by Marie Kondo’s bestseller, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

This workshop will help you lead with gratitude and become an extension of a home that you honor and respect. It includes an overview of KonMari fundamentals and practical decluttering tips that fall under five signature KonMari categories: Clothing, Books, Paper, Miscellaneous items, and Sentimental items. Enjoy a live demonstration of the signature KonMari Folding technique. We’ll also discuss common myths and missteps as we address how to overcome your specific clutter challenges and barriers to success and true abundance. Ask Kristyn your burning tidying question as you walk through exercises that will help you plan your KonMari home tidying event and declutter once and for all.

Each participant will leave with a For the Love of Tidy KonMari Fold Drawer Liner and a copy of The Tidy Map: A Roadmap to Planning Your KonMari Tidying Journey, as well as have a chance to win a copy of The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up or the second installment, Spark Joy!

Feel free to byo-drinks & snacks and enjoy during the workshop. Suggested that you bring something to write on and with.
