Introducing the Purge, a Rage-Based Cleaning Method

Peer pressure is key


Peer pressure is key

A necessary corrective to the KonMari approach.

I’m not totally sure why we started calling it the Purge. In part, it was because of the hilariously titled Purge franchise (No. 3 is out this weekend), the horror movies about the one day each year on which citizens are allowed to murder each other. Also, we’d all recently become fascinated by Marie Kondo, the Japanese organizing consultant, and yet were skeptical of her premise that you should only keep an item if it “sparks joy.” What if your items didn’t spark joy? What if they sparked rage?

2. Accept that purging is unpleasant. Marie Kondo really likes tidying up. She believes it possesses “life-changing magic.” But for many of us, cleaning is an unpleasant activity, arising out of frustration and a feeling that one has hit a breaking point, that one’s surroundings are untenable, and that a purge is the only way to restore order in a turbulent world. Embrace these negative feelings. Let them be your guide.

5. Air your grievances. Is there a decorative coin dish that has been innocuously sitting on your coffee table for years? Now is the time to tell your roommates that you hate it more than you’ve hated anything in your life and that it must be purged.
