13 Mar KonMari Method and Spring Celebration
Kick-off your weekend with an energizing talk by Amanda Jefferson, one of the world’s first professional organizers certified in the KonMari Method™. KonMari is the revolutionary process of de-cluttering featured on Netflix’s new smash hit and cultural sensation, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. This organizational method was first-introduced in the international best-seller The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up.
If you’ve been watching the new Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, you might have the sudden urge to purge. Luckily, you can easily get in on the action and can achieve your very own reality TV show “before and after” results in your closet, and it only takes 5 hours!
|4 pm||Fundamentals of the KonMari Method™|
A one-hour lecture in which Amanda will share the fundamentals of the KonMari Method™ in the hopes of inspiring participants to begin their own life-changing KonMari journey.
|5 pm||Meet and Greet Reception|
SATURDAY, MARCH 16
In this interactive workshop, Amanda will teach us the step-by-step process for creating a closet that sparks joy. She will discuss common stumbling blocks, including what to do with clothes that don’t fit and how to choose donation sites. She will also discuss how to become a more mindful and intentional consumer by buying fewer, longer-lasting, higher quality items. Amanda will also teach us the signature KonMari folding method. Feel free to bring an item of clothing that sparks joy so that you can practice along!
|9 am – 10:20 am|
10:30 am – 11:50 am
(Two duplicate sessions)
|How to Create a Closet That Sparks Joy|
This will be a 1.5 hour workshop with a hands-on folding activity, pop-up shop, and coffee and tea. SUNDAY, MARCH 17 The KonMari Method™ is meant to be implemented as a one-time, major event in your life. In the KonMari community, it’s often called a “tidying festival” or a “tidying journey”. It is not meant to be a process that drags on for years to come. Having gained knowledge of the KonMari fundamentals over the weekend, this culminating session will develop a personalized step-by-step plan to start and complete your own KonMari journey. Using the aid of Amanda’s planning tools, you will map out your journey, set goals, while anticipating pitfalls and prepare for resources needed.
