Today, Marie is a renowned tidying expert helping people around the world to transform their cluttered homes into spaces of serenity and inspiration. Her KonMari Method™, introduced in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (a global phenomenon that has sold more than ten million copies in over forty countries), is a way of life inspired by a single question: Does this item spark joy? The answer points the way to a life filled only with the items we truly cherish.

Does It Spark Joy?
The KonMari Method™ is a state of mind – and a way of life – that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in one’s life. Belongings are acknowledged for their service – and thanked before being let go, should they no longer spark joy. People around the world are drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and optimistic.
