American Culture: Organizing using the KonMarie method.

Feb 28, 2019

Hi Cafetalk community! Today I wanted to share a little bit about what is trending in American culture! Recently, American housewives like me love to use the KonMarie method when we organize our houses and rooms. Although Americans in general have a reputation of being *lackadaisical about keeping their house clean and focusing on the feeling you get when you enter our homes and we often collect clutter in our homes, recently Japanese culture is influencing the way that Americans keep our living spaces. Watch Marie's interview spoken in Japanese with English subtitles. Did you learn any new English as you listened?

lackadaisical -Being carelessly lazy; lacking focus or determination; not enthusiastic (不注意に怠惰になります。焦点や決意がない。熱心ではない)
