Do I need to do anything to prepare for my first session?
Nope! You don't need to clean or do any organizing beforehand. On our first session, we'll do a walk through of your home or office, define your goals, create a vision of your ideal living or workspace and then get started!
Do you make me get rid of everything?
Absolutely not! But through the process, you’ll hopefully find that there are many items just taking up space that you can live without and will never miss.
Who is Marie Kondo and what is The KonMari Method™?
Marie Kondo is the best selling author and lifestyle expert who developed The KonMari Method™. Her method is widely regarded as a new approach to decluttering based on Japanese values of surrounding yourself with items that spark joy. (taken from official KonMari.com website).
The tidying marathon consists of going through your home, touching each object you own, deciding whether or not it "sparks joy" and then keeping or discarding. After you've narrowed down your belongings to those you truly love, we find a home for everything so it will be easier to maintain a clutter-free home.
How long does this process take?
Sessions are normally around 5 hours. This is enough time to really do some work, but not too long so that we don't run out of steam. The KonMari Method™ recommends you tidy your house in one tidying festival to keep the momentum going. The goal is to have each session as close to each other as possible.
Can I pick just one area?
Of course! The KonMari Method™ works best if you go category by category in the order intended, but if you're feeling overwhelmed by a specific area or room, we can concentrate there first.
What service area do you cover?
If I can get to your house by public transportation from NYC, I'm there! If you're outside the area, let's talk.
