Decluttering expert Marie Kondo has added an online shop to her site, which sells self-care and household items that give her joy – but fans have complained about the irony of her message.
The expert, originally from Tokoyo, but now living in Los Angeles, became known worldwide in 2011 with her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which encourages us to get rid of anything that doesn't & # 39; joy & # 39; causes.
The store, admits Marie, sells 125 products that & # 39; joy & # 39; for her excitement – including a cement live edge bowl that costs $ 145 (£ 112) and a copper tool holder that costs $ 275 (£ 213).
However, fans criticize the expert and went to Twitter to share their surprise about the irony of her message – complaining that the guru, who originally preached to us about getting rid of junk, is now trying to sell us more.

Some of the 125 products have generated anger among its fans, who went to Twitter to claim that & # 39; you should respect the scam & # 39;
An irritated fan said: & would you believe it? Marie Kondo, the lady who insisted that we lose most of our things, now has an online store where we can buy more MATERIAL! & # 39;
While another joke was made: & # 39; Marie Kondo has started a store where, once you've cleared up all your expensive, trendy stuff, you can replace it with new, too expensive, trendy stuff … you have to take the scam to respect!
& # 39; All those years, Marie Kondo wanted us to throw things away. And now she wants us to buy things – from her new e-commerce store, & another fan joked.
Another criticized her message: & # 39; Recall that the # minimalism movement is not inherently anti-consumerism. Marie Kondo launching an online store and encouraging her audience to decide to leave room for her products is disappointing. & # 39;
The store, Marie acknowledges, sells 125 products that & # 39; joy & # 39; create for her – including this copper tool holder for $ 275.00 (£ 213)
Fans have criticized the expert and went to Twitter to share their surprise that the women who originally told us to get rid of junk are now trying to sell us more
The online shop, which is currently only sent to the US, was launched on Monday, with Marie to the website to write that the collection is & # 39; my favorite things and items that inspire joy for me & # 39 ;.
While the expert, who also had her own Netflix show last year, also stated: & My cleaning method is not about getting rid of things – it's about increasing your sensitivity to what gives you joy.
& # 39; When you finish cleaning up, there is room to welcome meaningful objects, people, and experiences into your life. & # 39;
The store, which also sells a tuning fork and rose quartz crystal – for $ 75 (£ 58) and a large serving dish (photo) for $ 220 (£ 170) bought joy for some fans
The news from the store, which also sells a tuning fork and rose quartz crystal for $ 75 (£ 58) and a large serving dish for $ 220 (£ 170), bought joy for some fans.
With one tweeting: & # 39; I know Marie Kondo's new online store will get a lot of hatred, but I'm personally all the way here for my guru who gives me permission to buy a tuning fork. & # 39;
While another excited tweeted: & # 39; Marie Kondo has her own store! I feel it will cause me a lot of joy & # 39 ;.
Marie, who announced the launch of the online shop on the website Wall Street Journal, said she had made the site after friends kept asking where she had bought things – which were in her own house. Although she also said that we should not buy things if we already have a similar item that generates joy.
& # 39; The most important thing for me is that you surround yourself with items that inspire joy. If the bowl you are currently using arouses joy for you, I do not encourage it at all, & she said.
