Organisational porn that’ll inspire you to get Kondo-ing

It’s official – Marie Kondo has taken over the world and she’s getting it in ship-shape condition, one row of perfectly folded t-shirts at a time.

Look, I’ve watched the show. I got inspired. But then, I took a peek inside my cupboards, thought about how many hours it’d take me organise them and how the likelihood of maintaining them in an orderly fashion was minus 1000 out of 10, so headed to the couch to catch up on last night’s ep of MAFS instead. Side note: WTF Jess?

Anyhoo, just because I’ve resigned myself to a life of dis-order, doesn’t mean I don’t like looking at pretty organisational pics. I LOVE it. Sorta in the same way that I love looking at pics of Jennifer Lopez; that bum is flawless, but I ain’t giving up the carbs in order to get it, you know?

So if you’re keen for a bit of Kondo-esque inspo to feed your brain, then these will get your blood pumping. They might even inspire you to clean out the cutlery drawer… nah, me either.

Let’s start with the heart of the home (‘cos it’s where the snacks are), the KITCHEN, with some pantry and fridge heaven…

Laundries are generally the messiest place in the house I reckon. Not these babies…

Get a load of this pantry. Never seen anything prettier…

If that doesn’t inspire you, then nothing will. Except maybe for this bookcase, which came straight out of my dreams…
