10 Marie Kondo Organization Tips That Will Change Your Life in Minutes!

Marie Kondo is a tidying expert, bestselling author, star of Netflix’s hit show, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, and founder of KonMari Media Inc. Her novel, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, is jam-packed with tips that will turn your messy room into a neat, minimalist oasis. Read along for 10 genius pointers from Kondo that will change your life in minutes.

  1. Keep only what brings you joy: Would you have seconds of that buffalo shrimp macaroni and cheese if you didn’t love it? Would you continue to watch a bad movie? Um, no. So why should you treat your belongings any different? Marie Kondo’s advice is simple: Keep what brings you joy and get rid of everything else.
  2. Tackle categories, not rooms: Decluttering your home is a huge undertaking, so it’s important you have a plan before you get down to business. Organizing room by room seems efficient, but Kondo urges you to focus on categories. Think about it this way: You probably have a lot of towels scattered throughout your house. By taking stock of all your bathroom, kitchen and powder room towels at once, you can get rid of any duplicates or towels that have overstayed their welcome.
  3. Don’t let nostalgia cloud your judgment: A movie ticket stub from your favorite film or a program from your kid’s school play may tug at your heartstrings, but these mementos aren’t doing your space any favors. So why keep them around? We know what you’re thinking: What if yesteryear’s trinkets bring you joy? Find a way to consolidate. Instead of having a box with old birthday cards from Grandma Sue, place them in a scrapbook that can fit on your newly organized bookshelf.
  4. Respect your belongings: Look at your closet. Are dresses slipping off intertwined hangers? Are expensive shoes scattered all over the floor? It’s OK, you’re not alone. We’re not sure what we think of Marie Kondo personifying clothes—she asks her readers to consider their clothes’ feelings—but we do see the importance of taking care of them. Regardless of how much their clothes cost, nobody wants to face the world in wrinkled, stained or scuffed pieces!
  5. Learn the art of folding: If you don’t have a dresser, we recommend you get one, stat. According to Kondo, your clothes will be “happier” if you fold them. After you fold your scarves, dresses, and pants, Kondo recommends stacking them vertically in your closet—she claims you can fit 20 to 40 folded piece where you’d normally be able to hang ten.
  6. Get rid of the paperwork: Speaking of superfluous systems, your filing cabinet needs to go. It’s the digital age, after all! You can find copies of almost every paper in your home office online. As for those important documents—like your birth certificate and recent W2s—Kondo advises whittling down your paperwork into two piles: “Papers to Save” and “Papers to Deal With.”
  7. Ditch the fancy storage systems: Before you whip out your credit card to buy that fancy spice rack, Kondo recommends detoxing your home first. She argues the only reason we think we need those pricey filing systems is that we have too much stuff. Go ahead, donate what you don’t need. You and your space will feel infinitely better.
  8. Store everything standing upright: If you’ve spent the majority of your life stacking your socks, bras, and underwear on top of each other, you’re in for a surprise. The organization queen recommends you store items side by side, so they look more like a row of book spines. Why? “This will allow you to see what’s inside at a glance and take inventory of what you own,” Kondo said told Architectural Digest. “If you store your clothes in a drawer standing upright, you will be able to survey how many articles you own that are the same color. This will prevent you from unknowingly buying more of the same type of clothing.”
  9. Start from square one: We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you want to give your wardrobe a complete overhaul, you’ll need to remove all your clothes from your closet. Sure, it sounds time-consuming, but Kondo argues it’ll be easier to spot duplicates and items that don’t bring you joy. Once you donate the clothes you don’t want, you can replenish your closet with your favorite pieces.
  10. Dig deep: Saying goodbye is never easy, but there are some items we can’t bring ourselves to discard. Before you start your organizational awakening, Kondo urges you to ask yourself why. She explains most items fall into one of three categories: an attachment to the past, fear of the future or a combination of both. The better you understand why you can’t part ways with those old kitchen gadgets from Grandma, the easier it’ll be to conquer that obstacle and have a brighter (and indisputably cleaner) future.

Do You Know Your H2O?: Taste Testing Alkaline Waters.

What’s in your water?

You may have heard various health claims about alkaline water. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

Alkaline refers to a water’s pH level, a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.

Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body.

Does it work?

Alkaline water is a little controversial. Some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body because it has a higher pH level than regular drinking water.

However, several health professionals say there isn’t enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. Differences in research findings may be related to the types of alkaline water studies.

According to the Mayo Clinic, regular tap water is best for most people. They state that there is no major scientific evidence that fully verifies the claims made by supporters of alkaline water.

However, there are a few studies that suggest alkaline water might be helpful for certain conditions.

For example, a 2012 study found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.

Another study suggested drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people who have high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. However, more research is needed beyond these small studies.

Our Taste Test

We gathered a small group of people and had them blindly taste test our chosen waters. We wanted to see if they could guess which water was clearer and higher in pH based on taste alone. We compared various bottled brands like Penta, smartwater, Crystal Geyser, Fiji, JUST Water, and essentia.

Penta Ultra-Purified: Penta Ultra-Purified water ranked high on the groups’ list as one of the testers top two favorites. Tasters commonly described the water as crisp and smooth. Many said the water also had a slight mineral taste to it that nicely balanced out the crispness.

Fiji Artisan Water: Not a fan favorite but not getting a downvote from anyone, Fiji water was largely described as lacking any particular taste and bland. Two tasters even said that it left their mouth feeling dry, chalky, or powdery after drinking it.

Crystal Geyser: Crystal Geyser marginally beat out Penta water for the group’s top choice. All of the testers agreed that Crystal Geyser was freshest tasting and had the most weight to it, making it the most filling water out of the selection.

smartwater: Almost all of the testers described smartwater as tasting like tap water. The tasters who frequently drink tap water described it as smooth and light, while taste testers who frequently drink bottled water said it had a slight mineral taste to it.

JUST Water: Ranking the lowest on the list, JUST Water was often described as feeling dirty, murky, chalky, and grainy by several testers. After all the waters were revealed, many attributed the poor taste to the brands carton-like, paper container.

essentia: Unlike the rest of the waters, where most testers agreed on the taste, essentia was split down the middle. Those who liked it described the water as smooth or clean tasting. Those who didn’t thought it had an acidic bite to it and even described it as salty in taste.

Pets of the Month

Say hello to this month’s featured furry friends!

Munch: This is Munch, and he is absolutely the best dog there ever was! I recently went though a very hard time that caused me to move from Idaho to Omaha. I really had nothing with me, except Munch. He went through a huge move with me, and hasn’t complained (that much) about it! Every time I walk with him outside all of the neighbors come running up to see him. Everyone seems to totally adore him, and he adores everyone too. He has made lots of new friends and is so happy to live at Alpine Village in La Vista, NE. Munch made this move so much easier on me, and I could never thank him enough. He is my family, and I am so lucky to have him.

Ginger: Meet Ginger, a 14-year-old tortoiseshell. I have had her since I was a little girl, and she has always been the greatest companion. She spends most of her time in boxes, laundry baskets, or hunting down pieces of paper/receipts. What she loves best about living at Claremont in Minnetonka, MN, is that she can safely go out on the balcony without me being afraid of her running off! She loves that she gets to see all kinds of birds and squirrels from our balcony window, something she did not always get at our last residence. You might even see her around the community as we occasionally bring her for walks with her harness!

Ideas to Spend Quality Time with Mom This Mother’s Day

 

Mothers; generous, devoted, supportive, annoying, chiding, nagging, but always caring. Like everyone else, mothers are made up of myriad emotions and personalities. But unlike everyone else, mothers have a limitless trove of love. In addition to gifting indulgences so they can pamper themselves, here are some ideas you can draw from to spend quality time with mom.

Take-out and Movie Night: Moms know your taste in fashion, food, and everything in between. They take great joy in making sure you have your favorite meals. Why not take a page out of her book and order in or, if you trust yourself, cook her a meal she will love? Pair it with a movie best watched with mom. If she is more inclined towards contemporary films, pick from this list here, or go vintage with this list of gems. Sit back, laugh, cry, and later argue over nuances of films and food.

Go on a Road Trip with Mom: Plan a trip where mom is the most important person. Pick her favorite songs to play in the car. If you are short on time, try this fun Mother’s Day playlist. Pick a destination that you know she will enjoy. If she likes shopping, head to a place known for its unique stores. If she is a wine connoisseur, drive to the wine country. Fill the journey with stories of mom’s growing up years, or secrets you may have never shared. The idea is to let mom know how much you value her for being her.

Make a Mom-Board: Who was mom before she was a mom? Dig through albums, speak to her childhood friends, ask dad, reach out to the extended family. Find out what mom was like, what she dreamed of becoming, how she impacted others around her. Create a wall with pictures of mom from her days of carefree fun, chart her journey, show her what she looks like as a social worker, a lawyer, an executive, a doctor, a teacher, a scientist, or anyone that she dreamed of becoming. Show mom that you believe in her the way she has always believed in you.

Pick a Class Mom Would Love & Attend it Together: In their constant pursuit to encourage and support us, moms often let their own hobbies fall to the side. This Mother’s Day sign up for a class she will love. From photography to painting to book clubs to craft, there are myriad options to choose from. Create something together and display it at home forever.

Volunteer for a Community Project Together: Moms are givers and families that give together, thrive together. Pick a cause mom is passionate about and donate your time together. Not only will mom love hanging out with you, but also draw satisfaction from contributing to the community.

Play a Board Game Together: Remember all the times mom entertained you by playing kiddie games, encouraging your make-believe and absurd tales, reading you story books? It’s time to relive those memories. Pick a board game to play at home, take to the park, or even bring to a coffee shop. Indulge in friendly competition and watch out, because mom is going to beat you at the game!

Le Palais Apartments: Spreading Light With the Candlelighters of Houston

The sun was shining and the day was crisp. The line of people waiting to get into Kirby Ice House was so long that it wound around the building. Volunteers speedily checked people in, but this was no easy task. More than 200 people had shown up to participate in Candlelighters’ fundraising event for children battling and living with cancer.

The Margarita Taste-Off was a combination of high energy, deep conversations, exciting contests and prizes, lively music, and delectable treats, but most importantly, it was an event that brought the community together.

<img src="backyard.jpg" alt="Backyard full of people talking and eating">

An afternoon of flowing conversation, margaritas, and hope.

Richdale Apartments’ newest luxury apartment community in the heart of River Oaks, Le Palais was a proud sponsor of the event. Not only did we have the opportunity to contribute dollars, but Le Palais’ associates and residents also spent time speaking with attendees and participants. While food, music, conversations, and stories were a huge part of this event, it was the power of community that reverberated through the venue.

Co-sponsor, Le Palais’ associates ready to participate at the Candlelighters of Houston’s fundraiser.

Ms. Kelsey Tarpinian, Development Director at Candlighters Houston, took a moment to talk with us. She beamed as she spoke of the support the organization received from businesses like Le Palais Apartments. A young father then stopped by Le Palais’ table and spoke with us about his two-year-old daughter who was battling cancer. He shared that while he worked full-time, his wife and the little girl’s mother stayed home as the primary caregiver. He spoke about the emotional and financial difficulties the family faced and strongly shared his gratitude for the support he was receiving from Candlelighters.

We then walked around the tables set up in the backyard and noticed memorials to children who had fought cancer not only in the United States but around the world. While everyone spoke openly, they also drew immense support and strength from each other. The result of which was an event pulsating with determination, hope, and the power of community … not to mention, great margaritas.

Erin Kenneavy, Leasing Consultant at Le Palais expressed it best when she said, ‘As a new member of the Houston community, Le Palais, located in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston at 1916 West Gray St., is honored to have played a strong supporting role at this event.’

Here’s the Scoop on Some of the Best Low Calorie Ice Creams

With so many brands, and even more flavor choices, it can be a cold and difficult task choosing the tastiest low calorie ice creams. We brought together a panel of taste testers to try some of the best low-calorie ice creams on the market today. You’ll find out the good and the bad so you can spend less time in the frozen food section wondering which ones are worth spending your money on!

Pros: Testers found the cookie shake flavor to be perfectly sweetened, with just the right amount of chocolate flavor.

Breyers Delights: This legendary ice cream brand prides itself on offering something for every type of ice cream eater, including people looking for a healthy treat. Breyers new Delights line of light ice cream offers 260 to 330 calories and 20 grams of protein per pint, thanks to added milk protein and stevia.
Pros: Testers said it had lots of flavor with the tart, fruity raspberry and plenty of fudge swirls throughout.
Cons: One tester said the flavor would be even better with which chocolate mixed in! Another thought it tasted too much like sherbert.
