Earlier this month Netflix released a new show appropriately called “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” A program in which a tiny Japanese woman, who speaks very little English, visit families all across the country to help declutter their living arrangments. The results are staggering as her methods really change the perspectives of all the families in need.
Kondo is a huge success in Japan, preaching her tidy lifestyle by having [messy] people ask themselves if an item “sparks joy” and saying “thank you” to items they give away. The results are a decluttered environment and happier lifestyle. Kondo has since rubbed off on many Netflix streamers as they are now tweeting their own experiences Kondo method.
If you’re thinking about giving it a go, just a heads up that results may vary. That is unless you have kids, which seem to all be pretty consistent.
