Episode 22: Questioning The KonMari Decluttering Method

iTunes Soundcloud | Stitcher | RSS


Marie Kondo’s “Japanese decluttering book” has taken the world by storm. The book details the author’s philosophy about organizing and decluttering, and gives step-by-step instructions for decluttering one’s home. She calls her specific steps the “KonMari Method,” and promises that it will change the lives of those who follow it. Thousands of people say it has, but plenty have voiced skepticism. In Episode 22 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha touch on different aspects of Marie Kondo’s approach, and share their reactions — both positive and negative — to the KonMari Method.
