As we’re all aware, Marie Kondo has been organizing our world one messy closet at a time. Her books and recent Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, have made her a sensation encouraging people to question if their possessions “spark joy.” The KonMari Method focuses on the categories of items rather than the location in which they are stored.
