Marie Kondo became the queen of all things organized when her Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, caused an organization revolution. Sharing advice on how to fold clothing to save space, clear out your closet and how to get rid of things you no longer want or need, Marie Kondo has since released books as well as announcing she is returning to Netflix with a new show - this time tidying up whole towns instead of one home.

Now, the tidying guru is offering people the chance to become an official KonMari Consultant, with a new series of virtual and in-person consultation course, where participants will leave as a certified KonMari Method Consultant. 

What are KonMari Consultants?

Founded by Marie Kondo herself, the KonMari Method follows the concept that if you declutter, tidy and organize your home once, you won’t have to do it again. The method also implies that you should get rid of items in your home that don’t ‘spark joy’, thank them, and then let them go. 

While it’s always handy to have the right equipment for a good clean, including the likes of the best steam mops and for tougher fabrics, the best carpet cleaners, the KonMari Consultancy training takes it to a whole new level. 

Costing over $2,000 for the course, it’s not cheap either! Participants are expected to read Marie Kondo’s books, tidy their own home and take photos of it, and finally, they will need to take a short quiz before they can attend the course to become a KonMari Consultant. 

Once attending the course, there are also certification levels depending on the number of houses the participant has tidied, along with the total hours they’ve spent tidying. 

If that all sounds a little bit like too much work, catch up with Marie Kondo’s Netflix series on one of the best TV streaming services instead.
