My Facebook feed is full of photos of shipshape garages, orderly closets and neatly stacked undies. Marie Kondo, an organizing consultant, encourages people to sort their belongings. And, if an object does not spark joy, toss it.
Some of my belongings don’t spark joy, yet I’d be loath to part with them. When I started de-cluttering my house, a chair, a magnifying glass and a hammer did not make the Kondo cut.
