Drew Barrymore Attempting to Spring Clean Is Too Relatable
Drew Barrymore is trying to get a head start on her spring cleaning, and honestly, good for her. The actress posted a video from her first-to-clean location — a catchall closet somewhere in her home — and it looks like she’s already pretty overwhelmed. But while sitting amongst the mess in her sweatpants, Barrymore sets a positive tone for the spring cleaning season ahead.
“Happy #SpringCleaning !!” Barrymore captioned her March 2 Instagram video. “I started mine yesterday… is anyone with me??? #mariekondo.” The hashtag makes this post all the more better.
“It’s March 1st. I am a woman on the edge,” Barrymore reports from her black-and-white tile floor. “I am going to Marie Kondo my life. I am going to do spring cleaning and hope that it gives me a sense of control because this is the only thing I can control, and everything feels out of control, and control is bumper rails and hopefully leads to boundaries and safety.”
She continued, “If I can get that out of cleaning the main closet, then how exciting is that? Happy spring cleaning. May it bring whatever you are looking for.”
It looks like Barrymore is setting herself up for success by using uniform cloth storage drawers similar to these ones sold on Amazon.
Judging by the little boots in the background, and kiddie coats in the foreground, Barrymore is likely tackling a kids’ storage closet first. And a closer look reveals that she’s also tasked herself with organizing a plethora of masks — perhaps one of the hardest things to try to organize. But separating kid accessories and masks using small boxes keeps everything in its place and gives little objects a home. Marie Kondo would be proud.
Good luck to both Drew Barrymore and the rest of you who are trying to get a head start on your spring cleaning. Channel Barrymore’s positive vibes, and Kondo’s knack for organizing, and hopefully, you’ll go pro in cleaning in no time.
