Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that really isn’t you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

Professional Organizing & Decluttering 

Using the world renowned Japanese method known as The KonMari Method™. In this method, the focus is on keeping only those items which bring joy to your life rather than what needs to be eliminated. If it brings joy to you, then it must have a “home” to reside in eliminating clutter and disarray.

The KonMari Method™

The “Tidying Festival” is a total transformation of your home and is comprised of six lessons. A complimentary phone consultation will be conducted prior to our first lesson so that we can discuss your vision of your home and the lifestyle goals you are hoping to achieve through this tidying process. The lessons must be completed in the order that is listed below.

Lesson 1: Clothing
At our first meeting, I will assess all storage areas and together we will create a plan of action. This includes ALL articles of clothing belonging to the Client I am working with that day and does not cover any other family members. Together, we will go through each item with the “joy check” process. After choosing what to keep, the proper folding technique and storage space will be determined to best support your remaining articles of clothing.
Lesson 2: Books
At our second meeting, we will go through all the books and magazines throughout your home. This includes general titles, cookbooks, educational school books, and magazines.
Lesson 3: Papers
At our third meeting, we will assess the paperwork throughout your home. This includes sorting through manuals, warranties, financial statements, and personal paperwork. We will discuss which papers are necessary to keep and how to best store them for your records.
Lesson 4 and 5: Komono
At our fourth and fifth meetings, we will look at the day-to-day items stored throughout the home. These lessons are dedicated to what Marie Kondo calls “KOMONO”. It includes all the items we store in our bathroom and kitchen closets, drawers, cabinets, and/or pantry. Also included are hobby items and seasonal decorations.
Lesson 6: Sentimental Items
At our sixth meeting, we will examine what to do with sentimental items. These include personal treasures, photos, and memorabilia. The process saves this category for last because once we arrive at this lesson, your ability to hone in on what brings you joy is that much greater. By this point, you will have discovered the ability to let go of the things that no longer serve your highest good.

The above is a general outline of a true “tidying festival”. This is based on the average size home with 2-3 bedrooms and 2-4 family members. At the end of each tidying lesson, you will be left with homework assignments to help finish up or start preparing for the next lesson. It’s important that you understand the key elements that makes this method attainable and long lasting. This imparts confidence and enables you to maintain your new lifestyle and help others within the home spark their joy as well. Disclaimer: Any additional hours required will be dependent upon your ability to move through each category efficiently while working diligently on homework assignments between our lessons. #organizetheworld

These are truly lessons because they are meant to help you change the way you think about your possessions and how to display and “house” them with joy.
