Tara biz profile for web-26When I read the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo I immediately fell in love with the tidying principles and method described in the book. Once I applied the method to my own “things” I understood the life changing effects of this tidying method and it transformed my life. I was one of those people who always had tidying tasks on my ‘to do’ list and I loved the idea of tidying up completely once and for all. Also, I loved how the KonMari Method™ focuses on what you choose to keep by asking yourself does this item “spark joy?”, rather than what or how much you discard.

In March 2017, I traveled to Chicago to begin my KonMari journey professionally and attended the Marie Kondo consulting seminar. Since then I have been giving clients lessons on tidying applying the KonMari Method™ while working towards my KonMari Consultant Certification. It’s been so rewarding supporting others through their own tidying experience and seeing the life-changing effects in their lives and homes.

What My Clients Are Saying

Before Tara taught me about The KonMari Method I was like most people in terms of hanging onto items that never get used.  As well the process showed me things that I forgot I had because they were hidden in a closet or bookshelf.  Once I decided what clothes I wanted to keep and which ones to donate Tara showed me how to fold and store my clothes which is fantastic.  The way my clothes are folded and stored shows me all of my items in a drawer, nothing is stacked so you can see everything.  Getting dressed is much more time efficient now.  Furthermore I’m not wearing the same item over and over again because its at the top of a pile.  The same holds true for physical items such as books, puzzles, kitchen accessories and old pictures etc.  Once I decided what to keep and donate the rest my shelves became manageable.  Ultimately due to working with Tara my spaces are no longer cluttered, kept only what I want, my house is much more tidy and best of all it gives me a good feeling.  My advice is to not rush and go slow.


I used to waste so much time looking for things around the house.  Now that I have decided what to keep and discarded the rest my storage areas are not overflowing anymore and I can see what’s there and everything has a special spot.  The biggest change is now it takes me minutes to get dressed in the morning rather than my previous 15-20 minute ritual that included trying on several outfits that I didn’t like and looking for misplaced clothes.  After tidying my home with Tara I have more time to spend playing with my kids, trying new recipes and reading that I wasted tidying and looking for things.



“Thank you Tara for sharing the KonMari method with me! I have spent many years moving clutter from one room to the next without successfully tidying up my home! The time you spent helping me to declutter has changed how I manage my home! I am amazed at how much easier it is to find what I’m looking for! The folding method changes everything!”
