Tidy Your Nest with KonMari at CALS

Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) is hosting a series of workshops focusing on the revolutionary KonMari Method of organizing. Workshops begin Tuesday, January 7, and are free and open to the public.

The KonMari Method uses a category-by-category system instead of a traditional room-by-room approach to organizing. KonMari encourages keeping only those things that speak to the heart. Discard items that have outlived their purpose; thank them for their service – then let them go.

People around the world have been drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective and forward-looking.

CALS workshops will be presented by Sue Fehlberg, owner of Tidy Nest. Fehlberg is Arkansas’ only Certified KonMari Consultant. She helps people transform their home or office from a place of chaos to one of calm, either by assisting them individually in their own homes, or by teaching KonMari Basics workshops for groups. She writes the organizing blog Tidy Friday, which is filled with tips that help people live less cluttered, more intentional lives.

The workshop includes a presentation that covers the most important facets of the KonMari Method with before and after photos, folding demonstration and practice session, worksheet with tidying tips and a folding guide to take home, and a question and answer session.
