The KonMari Method
“The best way to find out what we really need is to get rid of what we don’t.”
— MARIE KONDO
The KonMari Method is widely regarded as a new approach to decluttering based on Japanese values, including the spirit of Zen and Feng Shui.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, the best-seller which introduces the KonMari Method, has received international acclaim and has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Yorker. As of today, the book has sold over six million copies and is available in over 30 countries.
People are drawn to the philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective, and optimistic.
Tidy guru Marie Kondo comes to the rescue by helping people tackle the clutter that’s holding them back. It all comes down to one question: does it spark joy? Tidying Up with Marie Kondo launched globally on Netflix January 1st, 2019.
“Our clients, one of the largest international pharmaceutical firms, wanted a unique and enriching presentation for a key advocacy groups attending a national conference in Chicago.
We worked closely with Karin to develop the format and program that met the vision of the client. She was strategic with creative ideas to present information that was interesting, entertaining and informative.
The talk was reserved to capacity with a waiting list and was very well received. Karin conveyed methods that the attendees could use in their business and personal lives, focusing on managing the paperwork, material and content that was a key challenge for this group.”
“On a whirlwind tour, Karin and our PR team visited media outlets including NBC News, Parents Magazine, and Refinery 29.
With spirited enthusiasm, she swooped in and organized desk tops using efficient space savers and providing guidance on how to manage content more efficiently. Her message was that the workspace could hold fun and joyful moments, even when the work is sometimes tedious.
The editors were delighted and so was the client.”
“I worked with Karin on a project which involved the move of a large medical practice from one office to another expanded space, which was newly gut-renovated. We recognized that there were challenges and opportunities to the move and wanted to ensure that we set up the operations carefully and thoughtfully so that it was fully operational from Day-1.
She listened well and remained positive and enthusiastic throughout the entire project. She approached all endeavors with a tremendous seriousness of purpose. When faced with challenges or problems, her orientation for finding solutions served to accomplish whatever needed to be done. She was able to lead us in getting rid of unneeded, outdated or seldom used items by asking us to consider, What is the future use of this item?“
“Karin’s sincere work efforts (and ethics) keep things moving toward the end goal of a safe living and working environment that is well organized and functional. This makes it so much easier for my 80 year old Mom to maintain her home. Kudos to Karin! We couldn’t have done it without you!”
“I contacted The Serene Home after learning about KonMari and was hoping to get some assistance with organizing my home. Because I live outside the NYC area, I was able to use her virtual tidying plan and work with her via email and FaceTime. This was the perfect solution for me. My week is super busy and my free time very limited, but this program allowed me complete flexibility.”
“I received home organizing from Karin at The Serene Home as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend! Karin came to our apartment and helped me declutter and organize my closets using the KonMari method. She is understanding and informative, which made the process much more enjoyable. Karin had great suggestions and ideas for using our space better and making our day-to-day life easier. I highly recommend The Serene Home!”
“I’m thrilled to have worked with Karin at The Serene Home! I was preparing for a life changing event, and needed some professional input to help me work out storage solutions and new decorating ideas for my apartment.”
“I started working with Karin a few months ago as I was getting ready to renovate my apartment and needed some help with organization. As it turned out, the project has taken longer than expected and has had some complications, but with Karin’s help, I have been able to stay relaxed and calm, while taking care of various organizational issues step by step.”
“Serene Home’s vibe is cooperative and consultative….. she is a great listener and tuned into my challenges and needs quickly and responded with creative yet simple-to-deploy ideas and action. She’s assertive and collaborative, not strident and overbearing. I wholeheartedly recommend. Serene home can pull the thorn from your paw and turn your mess into blessed, too.”
“My session with Karin Socci was extremely helpful. Karin is a tremendous professional. She gave me excellent ideas and many solutions to long standing challenges. I look forward to working with her again.”
“Having someone come into my home to help me pull things together for a sudden overseas move was something I resisted until I was in a panic. Karin was a very calming influence and made all the difference in deciding what to take, what to leave behind and how to get it all packed up. She has great resources who were amazing, but she was quick to jump right in herself to solve problems as they came up. I wish I would have called sooner, because I really needed the help, but she made it happen!”
