I never imagined that I’d be on the cover of a magazine like @fastcompany! Following your joy will take you places beyond your wildest dreams.✨ Thank you @fastcompany for sharing how my partner @takumi.kwhr and I built @konmari.co and how tidying is more than a trend – it’s a movement to choose joy!

Founder of the KonMari method, Marie Kondo has been interested in organizing since childhood
When she was in school, Kondo would rush to tidy up the bookshelf instead of playing with her classmates. According to her, she was obsessed with organizing and tidying up. However, it took a toll on her health and led to a nervous breakdown. While talking about it, she said:
“I was obsessed with what I could throw away. One day, I had a kind of nervous breakdown and fainted. I was unconscious for two hours. When I came to, I heard a mysterious voice, like some god of tidying telling me to look at my things more closely. And I realized my mistake: I was only looking for things to throw out. What I should be doing is finding the things I want to keep. Identifying the things that make you happy: that is the work of tidying.”
Marie Kondo came up with a brilliant method of organizing called KonMari. According to it, one should divide all the house items of the same category and see which one sparks joy. If an item does not spark joy, it should be discarded or given away. In 2019, her TV show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo released on Netflix where she helps families organize their homes with the KonMari method.
Recently, Diane Keaton decided to unclutter her closet, and Kondo offered to help
In an Instagram video, Diane Keaton talks us through all the items she wants to give away. She said:
“I got to tell you something, I have a lot of clothing and its time for me to let it go. And I’m gonna give it to Goodwill because this is ridiculous.”
After that, she picks up one item another and starts making a pile of the floor. While doing this she reminisces how, where, and why she got the said item. After emptying half of her closet, she heads to the nearby Goodwill store. Upon arrival, Keaton sees the sign that the store is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While she did not succeed in her mission, Keaton did get an approval from Marie Kondo. On her video, Marie Kondo commented:
Way to go – here if you need me!
While Diane Keaton has not yet replied to her offer, we would love to see Marie Kondo go through her closet. It would be a sight to see Keaton trying to find which of her dark ensemble sparks joy. Maybe someone should pitch this idea to Netflix.
