Marie Kondo

The best-selling author and acclaimed tidying consultant, Marie Kondo, is dedicated to organizing the world and sparking joy in people’s lives.

With what began as a childhood interest in organizing, Marie Kondo started her organizing consultant business as a 19-year-old university student living in Tokyo to help people transform their cluttered homes into spaces of serenity and inspiration.

Marie’s KonMari Method™ of decluttering and organizing is now an international phenomenon. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is a bestseller in the United States, Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom, with more than eight million copies sold in over 40 countries.

The KonMari Method™

The KonMari Method™ is a way of life and a state of mind that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in people’s lives.

Belongings are acknowledged for their service and thanked before being let go of, if they no longer spark joy.

People are drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective, and optimistic.
