Valentine’s Day surprise! I am very excited to announce that I will be bringing the life-changing magic of tidying to a show on Netflix, where I will be guiding individuals who are at a crossroads to spark joy in their homes and lives ⠀ ⠀ I am thrilled for this opportunity to inspire mindful organization and share the KonMari Method of tidying. So far in my path, as I grew older and my passion for tidying deepened, my mission developed from tidying my room, to my clients’ homes, to Japan, and now to the world. Helping individuals undergo life-transformations and sharing the process through this partnership with Netflix is an exciting way to share the magic of tidying with more people. I’ll keep you updated on more details to come! ⠀ ⠀ It was a beautiful coincidence that this announcement fell on Valentines Day – I believe that tidying allows you to rediscover what truly matters to you, whether in your homes, lives, or relationships. Have a wonderful day filled with love and joy  ⠀ Photo by Drew Kelly.

The reality series features people looking to declutter their lives as they face a variety of real-life situations – from a wife’s difficulty in letting go of her late husband’s belongings, to a couple preparing for a new baby – and how Marie Kondo helps transform their lives by teaching them the art of tidying up.

Her book’s famous KonMari method will also be utilized, which is a lifestyle that starts with the simple question, “Does this item spark joy?”

Aside from instructional tips and tricks that viewers from around the world can easily learn from and apply, the show will not only tackle the removal of material possessions, but the unburdening of one’s mental and emotional baggage as well.
