Ready for the life-changing magic of tidying up?
If you’re like most of us, you’re probably stressed by too much stuff in your home (and don’t even know where to start in trying to manage it all).
But don’t worry, Marie Kondo can help you tidy all that overwhelming clutter the right way . . . and change your entire life in the process.
Kondo’s KonMari Method is the newest (and hottest) trend in home organization, revolutionizing homes around the world. It is based on her unique, fundamental principles of tidying up –
- Discard/donate excess (instead of trying to organize it).
- Keep only items that ‘spark joy’ when held (thanking and saying goodbye to those that don’t).
- Tidy by category (not by room) and in a very specific order.
We’re here to help too, with the 5 easy steps you need to ‘spark joy’ and organize your home with the KonMari Method.
Get started today. You’ll be so glad you did.

MAKE THE COMMITMENT
Tidying is a special event – not an every day task. Do it the right way once (using the KonMari Method), and you’ll never have to do it again. Commit to tackling this one-time job in a short, designated timeframe and you’ll free yourself from everyday tidying forever.
Tidying is all about decision-making. The key to success is being able to make quick, confident decisions about what to keep (i.e., what sparks joy) and what to discard/donate. Don’t second guess yourself – make a decision, and move on.
Gratitude is essential. You will be happier and more successful (bringing good energy into your home) if you give thanks and appreciate the purpose each object has served before discarding. Let things go, with gratitude.
