How to Give Your Inbox the Marie Kondo Treatment ...

At this point in 2019, it is safe to assume that you have heard of the cleaning and decluttering wonders of one Marie Kondo. Her lifestyle show on Netflix has taken the world by storm, and her no-nonsense ‘does this spark joy’ approach to keeping and throwing away has revolutionized many people’s lives!
