Marie’s KonMari Method™ of decluttering and organizing is now an intentional phenomenon. Her first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up has sold more than eight million copies in over 40 countries and was a New York Times best seller. In 2015, she was named one of The 100 Most Influential People.

The Basic Principles of the KonMari Method:

  • Principle 1: Visualize your ideal life. Before you begin tidying, go inward and ask yourself why do you want to tidy? 
  • Principle 2: Discard first, then organize your space in one go.  
  • Principle 3: Tidy by category and order (clothes, books, papers, komono, and sentimental), NOT by location. 
  • Principle 4: Ask, “Does it spark joy?” If it sparks joy, keep it, if does not, get rid of it. 

How KonMari Has Changed My Life:
