Marie Kondo – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

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!

Is Marie Kondo an organizing genius or just really good at self-promotion? It depends who you ask.Click To Tweet

Professional Organizers Blog Carnival - Marie Kondo edition

A former professional organizer, I’m now a Web Designer and Care Plan Specialist. I love helping others succeed by sharing the knowledge and insight I’ve gained through marketing my own business for over 15 years! When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
