Does the state of your home stress you out? 

Do you feel suffocated by clutter?

Do you want to create a home that sparks joy?

You are not alone!

After years of struggling to keep a tidy and clutter-free home, I feared I would never be able to find a system that worked for me. I just didn’t have the time to constantly tidy, let alone eat healthy and pursue activities that I love. 

That's when I discovered the KonMari Method.  This home organizing system was developed by Marie Kondo, the author of the New York Times Best Seller, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.  I was instantly hooked. In the months that followed I completely transformed my home into a space of tranquility and inspiration.

After seeing this incredible result, I started helping friends and colleagues to do the same.  When Marie Kondo offered the opportunity to learn to teach the method to others I immediately pounced! I became Canada’s first certified KonMari Consultant and the 2nd ever certified outside of Japan.  I have the amazing privilege of helping people from around the world to realize their dreams through the Tidy-Up Challenge.

I will teach you how to change your home and it will change your life!

I am loving the webinars, reading the first book (and have taken the second book out of the library) and am enjoying the journey.

This course is tailor-made for me. I always wanted a course like this and could never find one. This one is perfect.

Like hiring a personal fitness trainer to get into shape, working with Marina provided an ideal combination of motivation, guidance and encouragement to reach my goals. No pain no gain!

By the time we are done, I feel as transformed as my closet looks, and more than ready to escort the difficult, the worn-out and the useless parts of my wardrobe, and my life, out the door.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who is this program for?

I designed this program for people that may not have the budget for one-on-one consulting, or do not live near me (Vancouver, Canada), but still desire guidance and support. 

2. Does it matter what country I am in? 

People from around the world are invited to join and the Squarespace Commerce Platform works for almost all major currencies. We also accept Paypal.  

3. What happens if I miss a webinar?

The webinars will be recorded and participants can access the video anytime during the 12 week challenge. 

4. Why 90 Days?

In my experience, 12 weeks is enough time to complete the process if you are seriously committed. But this will take some work!  If you want to complete the challenge, you should be prepared to devote at least 4 hours every week to the process. Of course, this will depend on the size of your house or apartment.

5. What if I can't finish my home in 90 days?

Those with larger homes, lots of items in storage or many difficult sentimental possessions may find it difficult to complete the whole process in 12 weeks.  Don't worry. The Tidy-Up Challenge provides the framework to be successful no matter how long it takes you.
