“We had an initial phone consult, and I immediately felt connected to Kristyn and was excited about the prospect of working with her. I felt a major shift after each tidying lesson and could not wait for the next one. Everything in my home brings me joy, and I now have the time and energy for hobbies, pet projects, and quality time with friends and family. I found the virtual lessons to be budget-friendly and as equally effective as in-person lessons.”
“When I had my virtual tidying session with Kristyn Ivey, she was so easy to talk to. She did a wonderful job listening and giving me suggestions based on my personal situation. She started out big picture and gave me action steps at the end. The session was very motivating. I highly recommend it!”
“Kristyn was super receptive and kind and answered all my silly questions and concerns about the process of tidying up. I felt like we had plenty of time to go over everything she had planned plus go over things that were meaningful and personal to me that might not apply to others, so it was a very personalized thing which was really the most valuable aspect to me.”
I just completed my first virtual tidying session with Kristyn and it was SPECTACULAR. Kristyn is open, warm, and non-judgmental. Our virtual session unlocked so many understandings for me that I didn’t get from the Netflix version of KonMari…I’m 1000% more motivated because of my session with Kristyn.
“I would look up at my bookcase and Kristyn did some of what I like to call “wizardry” and all of a sudden the things that I was deciding to keep in my home were beautifully displayed in a very thoughtful manner using exactly what I had as my vision. So, I really was able to concentrate my time on sorting and thanking items and releasing them from my life.”
“I have lived a cluttered, messy life since I was a teen. I am now the one fussing about cleaning up and having things tidy (where all the rest of my life I’ve been the one being fussed AT). I feel so much more settled and at peace when my space is clean and tidy, and I am so grateful for the process she took me through!”
“One of the best decisions I’ve made in my life was bringing Kristyn into my home.”
“This has helped me be more ready for school…because I will be way less stressed studying for my classes…I have noticed that my mind can relax more after a difficult day. I wish everyone could do this to help make a new phase in their life.”
“It’s like tidying with an old friend. This has been an incredible experience. This isn’t just organizing, it’s coaching. It’s sitting down…goals…values…how do you want to live your life…let’s do it.”
“The process of tidying with your cleared out a relationship with someone of 20 months and quickly filled it with my heart’s desire. I met someone who is every I ever wanted and hoped for in a man, partner, lover and friend.”
“After being introduced to digital tidy, I was able to declutter my computer, move everything to cloud, and prepare to transition from my job smoothly. Tidying helped me to feel secure that all of my necessary files were accounted for.”
“Tidying my 3K Sq Ft home is something I started and stopped several times over the past two years … then I contacted Kristyn! I see that glorious finish line, and it’s all thanks to her expertise!”
“I had a virtual lesson/session with “For the Love of Tidy” months ago and I am still applying its principles! I feel as though Kristyn truly embodies “order.” ; still in a very flexible and friendly way as I was looking for.”
“This service is a combination of home organization, priority setting and stress relief therapy. I felt supported and encouraged throughout the entire experience!”
“I never thought I could have my home in any order. I am about halfway through and the transformation is amazing. Kristyn is professional, kind, competent, and effective!”
“Kristyn Ivey knows what she’s doing + she’s wonderful to work with from a logistical standpoint + she’s got the empathy and understanding that’s often required when organizing and cleaning the home; it can be emotional.”
“Kristyn is so insightful – gentle when needed, and also capable of having a firm hand. Very important when guiding folks through what can be an emotional experience.”
“I bow to you, Kristyn Ivey! You made the impossible of making my closet and drawers look presentable, and saved me from the doom of constantly wrinkly clothes. She’s worth every penny and then some for the peace of mind that her sense of organization brings. I couldn’t be more pleased and happy with her work. She makes “tidy” an art form.”
“After downsizing and never making time to dig through papers and boxes – the office had become very stressful.. Applying the KonMari method is NOT something I would do alone – but Kristyn made it possible and not so difficult!”
“Kristyn is a master at breaking down the konmari method so that it’s a manageable process. She is a great communicator, and is both patient and firm when guiding others. Hire her!!!”
“When I first reached out to Kristyn, I was struggling to decide what my next step should be in setting myself up for success as a KonMari consultant. She gave direct answers to my actual questions, but also took the time to give deeper, more impactful advice. She also offered great insight…and a glance into the types of decisions I may need to make as I grow my potential business.”
“Our conversation left me more confident as I prepared to meet with my first practice client just a few days after our call. She was very encouraging and helped me hone in on the skills I already possess and that I can use when working with clients.”
“The benefits of just a few sessions have been fantastic in helping me streamline my house and gain clarity in creating the vision I want for myself and my family.”
“I’ve always respected people who are super tidy and organized, but I didn’t understand how their home stayed that way. Now I understand.”
“My mom reported that she was thrilled with the progress she made in just one day, and that Kristyn was kind, supportive, and supper understanding throughout the whole process.”
“We went into lesson one thinking KonMari was just a fun exercise, but it turned out to be a life changing practice. As we move towards our goals of to buying our first home and expanding our family, we are maintaining our focus on what makes us happy!”
“I am thankful to my awesome coach K and For the Love of Tidy. Every lesson is a joy and I cannot wait for the next lesson. Since I met her and started tidying I got a BBC interview, I’m one step closer to my dream job and I found my dream home!”
“Kristyn’s energy is really cool and I know I want to complete the process. Although I still feel I have a long way to go, overall I feel terrific!” I’ve shared the KonMari Method of tidying up with a few of my friends and they have plans to try it as well.”
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.
Based on fundamental principles of respect, gratitude, and joy, the unconventional KonMari organization process is rooted in Japanese values:
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.
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.
