Marie Kondo - Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Marie Kondo first caught our attention in 2014 with her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Now she’s at the forefront again with her Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

Everybody’s talking about her – including other organizing professionals, who have widely differing opinions about her methods. And since there’s no better way to see what you’re all saying than the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, that’s our topic for May!

Read these fabulous entries and share your own thoughts in the comment section.

I’m truly thankful for everyone who took the time to participate in this edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival. Please show them your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their posts (or this one) on social media, using the hashtags #POBC #mariekondo

Next month will mark the 10th anniversary of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival! How crazy is that, eh? In honor of this momentous occasion, the monthly theme will be 10. Do whatever you like with it, but the number “10” (or the word “ten”) must appear in your post title. Go ahead and submit your post now if you’re ready! It’s fine if you need a bit more time, but the deadline is 7 PM EDT on Tuesday, June 18.

If you’d like to sponsor the 10th anniversary or another edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, please let me know.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

      Thanks for submitting it, Neena! I try not to jump on bandwagons but when I saw how many people were blogging about Marie Kondo, I realized it would make a great Blog Carnival.
