Austin's Only Certified KonMari Consultant
The KonMari Method of organizing was introduced by Japanese Tidying Consultant Marie Kondo in her best-selling book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Marie Kondo ("KonMari")'s holistic approach to home organizing gets to the source of clutter and helps identify what sparks joy in your life. The result is a total lifestyle transformation that is no less than magic!
As Austin's only Certified KonMari Green Consultant, I can help you achieve transformative results. The main principles of the KonMari Method are:
- Finish discarding first.
We have too much stuff. We can only create order once we've decided what we want to keep.
- Tidy by category, not location, and do it all in one go.
Categories include clothing, books, paper, komono (miscellaneous), & sentimental. Download the complete checklist here.
- Keep only what SPARKS JOY!
Through this process, you'll heighten your sensitivity to joy and increase your mindfulness about what you buy and how you take care of it. This mental shift is what ensures you keep your home organized for good.
- Store items standing up.
Save space by stacking side-by-side rather than vertically to quickly and easily access what you need.

The KonMari Method is a long-term approach that requires significant commitment, as we tackle one category at a time during our weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly sessions (6 hours each).
KonMari Consultant Training consisted of a three-day seminar in New York City, followed by a 50-hour practicum working with clients and obtaining feedback from the KonMari team. A final exam was required and included essay-style responses involving personal reflection and case study scenarios. Through the training I learned more about the truly transformative magic of tidying up.
