Tidy Your Space, Transform Your Life
Tidy Your Space, Transform Your Life with Marie Kondo.
Unless you've been living under a rock recently you will have heard about the Netflix show 'Tidying Up with Marie Kondo'. Marie Kondo is a Japanese organizing consultant who is taking the world of messy shelves, sock drawers and dressers to task, asking us to declutter and only allow the things that 'Bring us Joy' to remain in our homes.
Ireland's first certified Konmari consultant Vera Keohane was interviewed on Sundays' Alison Curtis Radio Show on TodayFM and spoke of how she had become so inspired by the method that she 'needed to know more' and so flew out to the US to attend a Maria Kondo seminar and get trained up in this mindful art.
So what's it all about?
"The KonMari Method™ encourages tidying by category – not by location – beginning with clothes, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally, sentimental items. Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy. Thank them for their service – then let them go".
With a global following of people who have transformed not only their homes but also their emotions and personal lives this is one trend set to continue in 2019.
We're gonna give it a go and share our pics with you. Here's to Joy!
