April 1 – Ferndale Library Hosting KonMari Method Presentation

April 1 – Ferndale Library Hosting KonMari Method Presentation

Spring cleaning is an annual event for so many of us, but an upcoming virtual event hosted by the Ferndale Library can help folks take things to the next level. There can be an organization to our organizing–especially when we follow the KonMari Method. Anyone who wants to streamline their domestic surroundings can attend a Zoom presentation with Kate Sood, a certified KonMari organizer, on Thursday, April 1 at 7 pm. Sood will introduce the principles of this popular and revolutionary method known as KonMari, popularized by Marie Kondo, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.

Kate Sood will show us how leading a tidy life is good for our surroundings and good for our health. Her presentation will detail the KonMari Method and its curriculum. She’ll share the secrets to leading a tidy life, explaining the many benefits (both physical and mental) of using this method to declutter and how to fold just like Marie Kondo!

Kate Sood is a former elementary school teacher turned current organizing professional and is now a certified KonMari Method consultant. “I have always had a passion for organizing,” said Sood. “But after reading about and using the KonMari Method, I knew I wanted to spread the magic. In April 2018, I attended the training in New York City to become the first KonMari consultant in Michigan. I am passionate about creating spaces that people love and helping them find joy in everyday things. I love serving the world by helping people of all ages envision and achieve their ideal lifestyle.”

The KonMari Method™ encourages those who practice it to tidy things by category – not by location – for example, clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous items, and, finally, the hard part: sentimental items. The impetus is only to keep things that “speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy.”

It’s one thing to have heard the expression, “does this spark joy?” It’s quite another to learn how to practice the actual method. Adults eager to start organizing their spaces can learn all about it on Thursday, April 1st, with Kate Sood–hosted by the Ferndale Library via Zoom.
