Marie “KonMari” Kondo is a self-described tidying obsessive. Her lifelong passion for organization led her to start an organizing business as a 19-year-old university student in Tokyo. When her waitlist reached six months long, a not-so-patient waitlisted client suggested she write a book so more people could implement her technique.
Marie’s first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is an international bestseller, with more than eight million copies sold in over 40 countries. She has gone on to write two more books, Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up and The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story. On New Year’s Day 2019, Netflix dropped their latest hit, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Marie’s first children’s book, Kiki & Jax: The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship, will be available Fall of 2019. Readers all over the world are “kondoing”, using The KonMari Method™ to tidy up their homes and spark joy in their lives!
