What is Konmari?
It makes organizing and decluttering positive. No longer feel shameful about what you keep or consider departing with. No one knows better than yourself what will support you! I won't tell you what to get rid of - how could I possibly know what sparks joy for you? Instead you will focus on what to keep and I will help you keep it well cared for.
- happiness: a joyful client centered focus
- individuality: your home will reflect your unique personality
- respect: kind treatment of your belongings
- confidentiality: discreetness and non-judgemental atmosphere
- completeness: this is a once and for all declutter!
- intention: your clear space creates room for the long term focus on your life
My Family's Story
In an effort to sell our first home, we packed up and stored toys, wall art, clothes, and who knows what else. I was very willing to store our stuff so our home would sell. I started realizing that was actually the way I'd prefer to live in the space as well! I was fine to pack it all away and not use it, so why wasn't I willing to get rid of it once and for all? I wanted our family to respect space, have less chores, and more freedom of movement and time. I just didn't know how.
When we put our second home on the market, I found Marie Kondo's The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up on audio from the library. It was energizing, motivating, and fun! When that home sold, my husband and I decided to make a positive change. First with some of the house sale funds we decided to move into our Airstream trailer and take a very long trip (5 months) with our growing boys. We visited Key West, FL, all the way to Sonoma CA. It was a great family experience. Then we decided to build a small home, deleting 1000 square feet of our former living space, reducing our furniture and belongings and most importantly swelling our time and care for the things we love! Using Marie Kondo's inspiring book, we learned how to focus on what we love and reevaluate what we need.
I love to sort, match and organize things. Even back in grade school I alphabetized my school books in my desk. As a homeschooling mother I know the value of an organized home!
Don't worry, though. Even though I love and appreciate order, I am not obsessed with it. I also love painting with my boys, sewing, knitting, reading, hiking, and traveling. My tidy home gives me time to enjoy my family and the hobbies I adore.
