Does it Spark Joy? KonMari Method


Founded by Marie Kondo, 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.
