Sacramento expert gives tips on how to KonMari your home

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Millions of people who have watched the Netflix show "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" are now testing the waters with her KonMari method of organizing.

Sacramento local Geneva Lewis is a certified KonMari consultant who lends her expertise to her company "Tidy by Geneva."

Here are some of Geneva's tips for organizing your home the KonMari way:

  1. Visualize your ideal lifestyle and imagine the way you want your home to support you.
  2. Tackle your clothing first. It's usually the item people have the most of.
  3. Touch everything you own in order to determine which items "spark joy" for you. Those are the ones you want to  keep.
  4. Use boxes and containers to organize kitchen drawers and paperwork.
  5. This shouldn't be a stressful process. Go at your own pace to create a space that works for you.

For more tips on KonMari or to book a consultation, head to the Tidy by Geneva website.
