Ever since Tidying Up with Marie Kondo dropped on Neflix Jan 1st, I have tried to KonMari everything. I emptied out my closet only to feel like Marie Kondo organizing a Caboodle when I tried to fit everything back. Desperate, I did what any self-respecting adult would do: I googled how to hire Marie Kondo to help me fix this mess.
The organizing queen, who sold over 5 million copies of her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, has created a global phenomenon based on donating anything that doesn't "spark joy". Her ethos of cherishing your items and the commitment to clean has spawned a community out of what was once a mile-long waitlist.
Yes, the waitlist is now gone and you can't hire Marie Kondo personally. She's too busy building her empire of joyful Hikidashi boxes. But you can hire a one of her KonMari consultants. They are trained at her conferences worldwide and are ranked based on how many homes they have successfully sparked joy in. Kondo speaks at the three day event that includes hours of tidying tips and client services.
One platinum ranking member charges $100 per hour and an additional $50 travel fee. Areas with higher demand will command higher fees, but you can hire lower ranking members to save money. All consultants must have properly KonMari'd their own house to even apply for training, so you can trust you're in good hands.
