Marie Kondo is the Japanese guru of order and cleanliness who sold us through books, courses and Netflix programs that, To be happy, our home must be organized and free of clutter.. And if, in addition, it is applying its own method of organization called “KonMari”, even better. However, in a recent interview with The Washington Post It seems that her life experience in recent years has led her to back down.
Although anyone who has cleaned and tidied up their house after being a lion den for a while will know the pleasure of living in a clear environment, the fast and hectic lifestyle that we are forced to lead today does not always allow to have the magazine house. This is something that even Marie Kondo herself has had no choice but to admit.
Above all, like when she is the mother of three children. “my house is messybut the way I spend my time is the right one for me at this moment and at this stage of my life”, has confessed the most famous organizer of the 21st century.
Kondo and her husband have three children: two girls and a boy. The latter was born in 2021 so, with three young children at home, having everything impeccable is no longer the first thing on her list. Something we are not happy about because order cannot always be a priority without ending up becoming an obsession.
Along these lines, the creator of the KonMari method has confessed that aspiring for a home to always be in perfect condition is utopian, at least when there are children involved: “I did everything possible to keep my house tidy at all times. But I ended up giving up. Now I realize that what is important to me is to enjoy time with my children at home”.
Of course, we will be able to learn more about this update in his philosophy in his latest book, from which the interview about the statements in question came out. Is named The kurashi method: how to organize your space to create your ideal lifestyle and in its pages shells how can we create our style of ideal life.
