Does the disorganization in your home or in your office cause your mind to be confused? You want everywhere to be immaculate, but don’t you know where to start? Do you feel as if you are disappeared between the odds and ends which are uselessness but which you do not have the heart to throw to? If so, you still have not met Marie Kondo.
Marie Kondo is Japanese organizing consultant and author who aims to teach the world how to be organized. She has written four books on organizing which have been translated from Japanese into many languages and which have been sold millions of copies. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, published in 2011, has been published in more than 30 countries and became best seller in Japan and in Europe.
It is really amazing that just by explaining how to be organized, Kondo was listed as one of the “100 most influential people” in the list of Time in 2015. She has been interested in tidying and organizing since her childhood. She was the girl arranging the bookshelves during the school. Nowadays, she teaches how to arrange their lives by just organizing their houses not only to Japanese but also to most of the nations in the world. In modern life, habit of consumption has captured our lives. We everyday buy the things which are never used and mostly forgotten in the wardrobes. She reminds us to take the properties which give us happiness to our life, to leave the goods which have no meaning for us. By just cleaning the backlog of the goods in our life, we may be able to have a more arranged mind. In fact, Kondo is not just an organizing consultant; she is some kind of a psychologist.
Marie Kondo developed a method of organizing, known as the KonMari method. KonMari method consists of gathering together all of one’s belongings, one category at a time, and then keeping only those things that gives joy, in her words spark joy to you.
