Her methods have garnered a significant social media following with the hashtag #konmarimethod, and also landed her a spot on Time’s 2015 “Top 100 Influential People” list.

Marie Kondo is a Japanese organizing consultant and author. She has written four books on organizing, which have collectively sold millions of copies and have been translated from Japanese into languages including Korean, Chinese, Spanish, Indonesian, French, German, Swedish and English.

Ever since Netflix released Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on New Year’s Day, Twitter has been awash with Kondo memes.

Marie follows the the Japanese way of living based on minimalism, and she applies to all objects in house.

Marie is growing popularity on the web; however, some of her statements divide the internet.
