'Tidying Up' Star Marie Kondo Debuts Online Store

Kondo gained famed for advising people to throw items away that don't bring them "joy.". Kondo's store is called KonMari.com and offers a wide variety of products. The items are placed into seven categories, which include kitchen d├ęcor, aromatherapy and books. The store has received some criticism on social media due to Kondo's decluttering views. @MarieKondo tricked everyone into getting rid of their stuff so they can buy her stuff. #mariekondo, @mckramer, via Twitter. So now #mariekondo wants you to buy as much of her stuff as possible?#ironic, @SamLaskaris, via Twitter. Kondo says she knows some may see the store as a contradiction. I'm not trying to encourage over-purchasing anything. What's most important to me is that you surround yourself with items that spark joy, Marie Kondo, via 'The Wall Street Journal'
