The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

Apr 28, 2015

Clear the clutter from your home—and your mind—with help from Japan’s “queen of clean” Marie Kondo. Japanese organizational consultant and lifestyle phenomenon Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. With a practical yet philosophical approach, Marie explains her patented KonMari Method, a category-by-category approach to efficient tidying. Learn to tackle decluttering head on and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire. Does an item “spark joy?”—if it does, keep it; if it doesn’t, throw it away. “When we really delve into the reasons for why we can’t let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or fear for the future.” Moderated by Wendy Goodman, design editor at New York magazine, with translator Lisle Wilkerson.
