Frequently Asked Questions
How long is each KonMari tidying lesson?
Each session takes 3-5 hours as we will use this time to go through the method thoroughly . Minimum is 3 hours and maximum 5 hours for categories with more volumes. You might be surprised how much time is needed to sort out and joy check each item you have in the categories.
How much does it cost?
3-hour Session: $300 ( Introductory Discount: $150 )
5-hour Session: $500 ( Introductory Discount: $250 )
Do you have packages?
Through our consultations and discussions, if you are truly serious in completing all 5 categories, a bespoke package can be arranged with limited time validity.
How many lessons will I need?
The number of lessons depends on your preference, organisational goals, budgets , how much things you own , how fast you make decisions as we work and the size of your home. Homework is given in between sessions so that is a factor on how much you can get done in between sessions. It can typically take 5-10 tidying lessons to go through all 5 categories in an entire house or 3 lessons if you stay with family and would only like to tidy your own things within the 5 categories.
Will my information be confidential?
Yes! Absolutely! All your information, location and personal sharings will not be divulge to other parties. I value privacy and confidentiality and it will not be compromised at all times. If you have agreed to have your progress photos taken, they will only be shared on the platforms stated on the terms and conditions form which you will sign before we start our sessions. Other than that, everything is kept highly confidential.
I'm not really comfortable with people going through my private things especially undergarments, private momentos etc.. So will this be ok?
Yes of course! What I'll do is to still verbally walk you through the method & process while giving some examples of what can be done with them and those will be your personal homework in between sessions.
I live with my family, is it still ok to do that?
Yes. I suggest to tidy Your own items only. Shared items can be put aside and you may double check with them if they might want them or to mutually agree to store it in the manner that is agreeable by both parties.
Can i also Konmari my family’s things while I am at it?
No. It is advisable to have separate sessions with your family member/s as tidying through this method is a highly personal process and to an extent, an emotional journey. 1-1 format of the session ensures privacy for each individual to allow each of their own efforts to touch and impact their own relationship with their own things and the connection to their mental/emotional state in life.
Can you work with my children or my other family members ?
Yes. As above, seperate 1-1 sessions can be arranged with them to go through their own items in the same way.
Do I need to read Marie Kondo’s books?
It is not necessary to read the books prior, but I do recommend to read them in your own leisure time to fully understand the concepts, philosophy and practical applications to this method. It can be an inspirational read to understand how it can be transformational to someones life.
Do I need to buy any organisational storage items?
I suggest to leave buying extra storage at the end of completing all 5 categories. IN the KonMari Method, we try our best to repurpose existing storage boxes eg Laptop and electronic boxes, jewelry boxes, product, choco tins and boxes for use . Through decluttering of each category, you might find extra storage being created . You will have a better idea how much storage is needed once you have decluttered and tidied and make the necessary purchase then
What to do with my discarded items?
You may choose to give some away for donation, to recycle or dispose of them appropriately in your own discretion of time.
If I am interested, how do I become a Konmari Consultant?
The very first step to becoming a KonMari Consultant is to have read all of Marie Kondo’s books and completed tidying up your own home in all 5 categories before attending a Consultant Training Seminar. You can find more details about the process on konmari.com
