* Marie Kondo’s hit series Tidying Up With Marie Kondo is now on Netflix
* It focuses on the positive impact de-cluttering can have on your life
* These ten items below can help assist in your clean-up efforts
With the release of her new Netflix series Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, many people were introduced to the life-changing impact organization and de-cluttering can have on you. Before the release of her new show, Kondo also penned four books, including The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, which became a #1 New York Times Bestseller, and broke down the revolutionary KonMari Method, a category system that will change the way you clean. The KonMari method also has wider spiritual implications, as it asks you to keep only those things which “spark joy.” So whether it was your New Years’ Resolution to finally clean out your closet, or you’re just looking to change up your tried and tested decor, we’ve found ten organizational tools we’re sure Kondo would approve of.
