There couldn’t have been a more appropriate Netflix premier date for
Tidying up with Marie Kondo, than Jan 1st. If your new years resolution this year was to leave the mess behind, then I highly recommend this series. It is sure to give you the motivation that you are looking for. It is an eight-episode self-help reality show on spotlighting the Japanese decluttering guru and her vaunted “KonMari” method.
The Netflix series is based on Kondo’s best-selling book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.” Rather than cleaning out room by room, the KonMari Method promotes sorting by category, and assigning a sentimentality to each item. As Kondo writes on her website, “Keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy. Thank them for their service — then let them go.”
