18. We Were Wrong About Marie Kondo
This is the story of the secret shame we all carry about our houses. And the one thing that can free you from it.
This is a story about Christie's house Maplehurst being adrift in a sea of mud and construction and the pungent smell of mushroom farms nearby. And what Lisa-Jo's daughter said to change how Christie sees/smells her house.
There is nothing like the power of seeing your home and your life through someone else's eyes. For better or for worse. This week Christie admits her own secret house shame. Lisa-Jo admits all her judgy thoughts about Marie Kondo and they are both surprised by what they learn from this diminutive Japanese woman who is taking us all by storm in her new Netflix show.
