“Make tidying a special event.” ~ Marie Kondo

In her bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, author Marie Kondo introduced a style of tidying that focuses on decluttering and organizing your space by keeping only those items you love. In this live virtual presentation, Shannon Huneycutt, a certified Silver Level KonMari consultant and the founder of Spark Joy Charlotte, will share the philosophy of Kondo's KonMari Method™ and the guiding principles needed to tidy once and for all so you will feel motivated to Spark Joy in your home, office, and life!

Registrants will receive:
* A custom viewing page you will have access to for 48 hours. You can visit the page and view the presentation and perks on your own time.

* A 60-minute recorded presentation in which participants will learn the philosophy behind the KonMari Method and discover what it means to live a life that Sparks Joy. 

* A folding demonstration in which attendees will practice the famous KonMari vertical folding technique. 

* A Spark Joy Charlotte tidying checklist that breaks apart the KonMari categories, making it easier to apply the method in their homes. An explanation of the given categories and helpful tips for executing the Joy check. (Plus a few of Shannon's favorite storage solutions!)

* Entree for a giveaway. One attendee will win the Jumpstart Your Journey virtual guide to help them get started on their journey.

* A Frequently asked questions section will share Shannon's insight into some of the most common pitfalls when tidying.
