Marie Kondo has made an art form (and a business—and arguably, a cult) out of home organization. Through her KonMari Method, she encourages you to only keep items in your home that spark joy, and to purge the rest. She brings her concept to life in her now famous Netflix series, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” While details on a second season have yet to emerge, she’s been keeping busy, with a new book out next month.
Marie Kondo’s second book, “Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life” focuses, as the title suggests, on decluttering your desk and getting your workspace together—which should still prove handy if you’re working from home right now.
Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life, $13.99 on Amazon
Available for pre-order; releases April 7.
But if you’re more in the mood to organize your kitchen—or have plenty of time to do both (same)—we have you covered, and so does KonMari.
In December, Marie Kondo’s online shop debuted to highlight items she loves. It’s well worth a look; this $89 rabbit-ear storage box, for instance, is definitely adorable—and useful for stashing odds and ends. But if you’re on a budget, you can find sleek and super useful organizing items on Amazon too. We rounded up our favorite picks to de-clutter your kitchen, because it’s officially spring cleaning season, and we’ve got plenty of time at home to spare these days besides.
