How did I spend my lunch hour? On The Kojo Nnamdi Show!
Today was probably one of the best Hump Days I’ve had in awhile. I mean, it’s not every Wednesday that I get invited to be a guest on one of my favorite radio shows to talk about one of my favorite things–minimalism! So, spending the afternoon on The Kojo Nnamdi Show was a real treat. Deets below and if you missed the segment, you can listen here.
Scaling Down & Tidying Up: Tips for Spring Cleaning
Produced by Mark Gunnery
Guests: Christine Platt, Author and scholar of African and African American history and culture; minimalist who coined the term “Afrominimalist” and Kay Keyhani, Owner of Tidy Paradise, a KonMari-inspired decluttering business
The end of winter is just two weeks away, and many people plan to take the season change as an opportunity for spring cleaning projects around their home and workspaces. But whether it’s an apartment’s worth of dusty baseboards, a closet overflowing with clothes that no longer fit or a refrigerator full of questionable leftovers, it can be hard to know where to start decluttering and cleaning.
We take a deep dive into spring cleaning with two guests who have embraced scaling down as a means of tidying up. Kay Keyhani is the owner of the decluttering business Tidy Paradise and uses the KonMari process, which was developed by writer and television host Marie Kondo. Christine Platt, an author and academic, coined the term “Afrominimalist” to describe her philosophy and practice of minimalism inspired by the textures, colors and cultures of Africa and the African diaspora. They join us in studio to talk about how they keep their spaces organized and share their recommendations for people looking to clean and declutter this spring.
