About this Episode

Today’s KonMari Quick Tips episode is about having Safe Summer Fun in 2020.

Summer means fun outdoor activities, events, markets, vacations and an easier, more relaxed way of life. At least-that’s what summer usually is all about. But, this is a summer like no other for most of us. No matter where you are in the world, it’s likely that you’ll be much more mindful about where you’re going and how you’re spending your time. If you are looking for ideas, this episode is for you!
