You’re a success at work.
You're creative and talented in your free time.

Do you have trouble letting things go?

Do you feel surrounded by unfinished business and tasks?

Are you feeling like life is pulling you in too many directions?

Has clutter started to accumulate at an alarming rate?

For the Love of Tidy is Chicago’s first professional organizing consultancy specializing in the KonMari Method® as well as being a Black- and woman-owned company.

Founder Kristyn Ivey can help you put your home, mind, and life in order once and for all. By organizing the KonMari® way you are daring to do things differently. You’re inviting the discomfort of real change in the short-term so that you can embrace self-awareness and grow toward true abundance for the long run.

You can holistically and comprehensively transform your home and life by investing in this form of radical self-care.


Once your home is in order, the real transformation begins. No longer agitated by your external environment, your focus shifts to other areas of your life in need of joy: career, health, finances, relationships, hobbies, spirituality, and community.

Surround yourself with joy. Prevent “clutter rebound” once and for all by only keeping items that “spark joy.”

Put your past in order. Honor the things that support the person you’re becoming.

Handle objects with respect. Send them off with a “thank you” once they’ve completed their cycle.

Store clothing upright and on-edge. Relieve tension using the signature KonMari® Fold.

Organize comprehensively. Tidy by category rather than by room.

Greet your home. Express tidying-related intentions while being mindful and present.

Does it spark joy? 
Based on fundamental principles of respect, gratitude, and joy, the unconventional KonMari® organization process is rooted in Japanese values:

The KonMari Method® is a revolutionary organizing technique made popular by Marie Kondo’s bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

The method celebrates what you choose to keep, rather than focusing on what or how much you decide to discard, donate, or sell.

The KonMari® Method

Invite the KonMari® experience into your home with open arms and the help of a certified KonMari® Consultant.

While decluttering and organizing their homes, Graduates of Tidy have found money, paid off debt, gotten engaged/married, released toxic relationships, released bad habits, modeled healthy habits for their children, encouraged their spouses to get organized, switched careers, lost weight, return to their favorite hobbies, and more.

The KonMari® approach helps you see life through a lens of joy and moves you toward true passion, purpose and happiness.

For the Love of Tidy’s founder, Kristyn Ivey, is a Chicago-based professional home organizer who is dedicated to teaching busy families, professionals, and creative entrepreneurs how to let go of “stuff” to attract a truly abundant life.
