I considered doing the whole Marie Kondo thing but it’s useless. “Throw away everything that doesn’t give you joy”?
I grew up in the USSR. We had shortages of shoe laces. And food. And clothes. And toilet paper. And books. And scrunchies. Actually, scrunchies didn’t exist at all.
Everything gives me joy! You should have seen me when I bought a toilet paper roll stand. I was literally going nuts with joy. It was years ago, and I still get a warm and fuzzy feeling about the stand every day. Marie Kondo can’t help me. It will take a couple more generations for us to get ready to be Mariekondoed.
In the photo is my sparkly scrunchie collection. And yes, it gives me joy.
