  • How is the KonMari Method® different?
    Most traditional home organizing methods advocate tidying on a room-by-room approach as well as on a little-at-a-time-basis. This causes us to feel as if we are in a constant cycle of never-ending home organization projects. The KonMari Method® is a unique method that encourages tidying by category – not by location- beginning with clothes, then books, papers, komono (miscellaneous), and finally, sentimental items. Keep only those items that speak to the heart. What no longer brings joy or serves a purpose can be let go with gratitude. The method places great importance on being mindful and intentional. It hones your skills to let go of past attachments and fear of the future. It’s an exercise in being present and confronting yourself, with the result of a joyful space that reflects the life you envisioned and deserve.
  • Why does the method encourage tidying by category?
    It might seem logical to tackle one shelf, closet or room at a time. When we do that, it's difficult to see the whole picture since we often store items of the same category in different places. We don’t realize the number of duplicates we own and end up buying more because we can’t keep track of them. Tidying by category means taking an inventory of what you have, and it’s much easier to compare and decide which item you want to keep and which to discard.

  • Do I have to be present during a session?
    Yes, tidying is a very personal journey and only you can determine what sparks joy. It is also important that you learn the techniques of the KonMari Method® to ensure the changes you make are lasting.
  • What if others in my family/home are unwilling to tidy up?
    As a consultant, I work with individuals one-on-one. Those individuals make decisions about items that they have control over. With shared items or shared living areas, the person I am tidying with should discuss with other adults to agree on decision making rights. You might be surprised how much of a difference it makes for you to get started, to put your own oxygen mask on before assisting others. As a parent this is an opportunity to lead by example. As a spouse/partner, it’s an opportunity to take care of yourself. This process can be quite infectious!
  • How many sessions will I need?
    That depends on a few things: · the size of your space · how much you have · how quickly you make decisions · how much homework you are able to do between sessions When you commit to the process, it can be a life-changing experience.
  • Which payment methods do you accept?
    We accept cash, check, PayPal, Venmo, Cash App, Zelle, and credit cards. *Credit card processing fee is 2% per transaction*
