Marie Kondo: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up


The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and New York Magazine’s Wendy Goodman.

Clear the clutter from your home—and your mind—with help from Japan’s “queen of clean” Marie Kondo. Japanese organizational consultant and lifestyle phenomenon Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly declutter your home once, you’ll never have to do it again.

With a practical yet philosophical approach, Marie explains her patented KonMari Method, a category-by-category approach to efficient tidying. Learn to tackle decluttering head on and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire. Does an item “spark joy?”—if it does, keep it; if it doesn’t, throw it away.

“When we really delve into the reasons for why we can’t let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or fear for the future.”

    Hey There! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I hear lots of people keep on talking about Rocelangue Method (search on google), but I'm not sure if it is really good. Have you tried this how to speak practical foreign language tutorial called Rocelangue Method? I've heard many awesome things about it.

    The interpreter is former Tokyo resident and passing acquaintance Lisle Wilkerson. She does an amazing job here! Miles beyond the woman who interpreted for Konmari at Google. That said, she does approach this gig with a noticeably casual demeanor, and her paraphrasing does get a little loose in places, which MIGHT be why Konmari seems to take an interest in the question cards. お疲れ様、リーソル!

    Hi, I am throwing this one in, I hope it gets answered… Thank you. … Does anyone know if it is OK to put stuff into boxes? Things are alive, so how do they feel if they are in the boxes and left in the attic? Or how do we feel? Is it not the medial solution and so not the solution? So is it best to immediately throw them into trash/donate them or rather keep them in the boxes for some more time?

    wow i agree like when i clean its more about what i want to keep because if i want something it means i like it and makes me happy…and iagree that columns are bad not just that it squishes the things that are in the bottom but when i také some of the bottom things out it always messes the whole pile ..
