Organizing Papers in Your Home

Marie Kondo, host of the Neflix show, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” inspired many to say ‘thank you’ to unwanted items and think hard about what ‘sparks joy’ in their lives.

Closer to home, Michele Vig is the first Minnesotan to be certified in Marie Kondo’s KonMari method of organizing. Vig is the owner of Neat Little Nest, and helps clients take control of the clutter in their homes. She stopped by the studio with a simple process for organizing kids’ accomplishments.

Vig recommends a three-step process:

1. Display. Dedicate a place in your home where kids’ artwork and accomplishments are placed when they first enter the home.

2. Decide. When that area gets full, work with your kids to sort through the treasures and select the ones they want to keep for good.

3. Keep it safe. Set up a hanging file system for kids when they are babies. This will make it easy for you to prepare something special for big achievements, like graduation.
