Your tidy home

You’re super successful when it comes to your career.

You’re creative and talented when it comes to your hobbies.

But… you’re busy and overwhelmed when it comes to your home.

If this rings true for you, you’re in the right place.

Old habits die hard.

If you’re like any of the 12-million people who’ve purchased Marie Kondo’s bestseller The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, you might be feeling like enough is enough.

Let’s check in:

Has clutter started to accumulate at an alarming rate?

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

Do you feel surrounded by unfinished business and tasks?

Do you have trouble letting things go?

Is clutter a regular source of conflict in your home?

Your clutter is trying to tell you something. Are you listening?

If you’re struggling to get organized and stay organized, let us reassure you that you’re not alone! Everyone has clutter somewhere in their life, and the skill of organizing a home is not something we’re taught or trained to enjoy.

Real talk, real tools, real results.

Learn to view your home and your life with respect, gratitude, joy…and love.

It’s not too late to learn.

“You have the choice to design your home and your life to be as simple or as complex as you want them to be.”

Tidy Tales of Success

The KonMari MethodTM

The KonMari MethodTM 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.

Does it spark joy?

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

  • Greet your home. Express tidying-related intentions while being mindful and present.
  • Handle objects with respect. Send them off with a “thank you” once they’ve completed their cycle.
  • Organize comprehensively. Tidy by category rather than by room.
  • Put your past in order. Honor the things that support the person you’re becoming.
  • Store clothing upright and on-edge. Relieve tension using the signature KonMari Fold.
  • Surround yourself with joy. Prevent “clutter rebound” once and for all by only keeping items that “spark joy.”

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.

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

After getting their home organized, Graduates of Tidy have found money in their home, paid off debt, gotten engaged/married, released toxic relationships, released a bad habit, modeled a healthy habit for their children, encouraged their spouse to get organized, switched careers, lost weight, return to their favorite hobbies, and more.
