    3. Everything except for dogs and vodka

    Please. If I got rid of all the shit that doesn’t “spark joy” I would be left holding my dog and a bottle of vodka. On the side of the road. The end. #MarieKondo #SparkJoy

    4. Their husbands and kids

    I tried the Marie Kondo method for decluttering my home and got rid of anything that didn’t spark joy. I feel really good about it but my husband and kids are ruining the moment by trying to get back inside the house.

    8. Everything but wine and coffee

    Decided to jump on the @MarieKondo bandwagon and only keep things in my house that "spark joy." Honestly, I don't know what all the fuss is about. Seemed pretty straightforward to me.
