All About Organizing? Then This New Netflix Show Is for You
It just might give you a few ideas for a tidier home.
With the advent of a new year comes the inevitable urge to clean up, clean out, and get our homes in tip-top shape. Enter a new Netflix show that's about just this endeavor: It's Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, and it's here to prompt you to get your home organized once and for all.
The new show is hosted by Marie Kondo, who explains, "My mission is to spark joy in the world through tidying." Kondo is author of the bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which made a splash when it was published in 2012. In it, Kondo explains her organization practice, which she calls the KonMari Method. A facet of this process involves taking everything out of its drawer, closet, or box, holding it in your hands, and deciding whether or not it "sparks joy." If it doesn't, you're encouraged to get rid of the item. Simple, right?
Not always. In the trailer for the show, Kondo assists people whose homes have been overrun with clutter, people who need a lesson in tidying—and some help summoning the motivation to get organized. It's not an easy endeavor, but it's an important one. Netflix describes the show as "a series of inspiring home makeovers [in which] world-renowned tidying expert Marie Kondo helps clients clear out the clutter—and choose joy." Watch the trailer below for a glimpse into the world of the show, the sometimes emotional processes of tidying, and the eventual triumphs of Kondo's brand of home organization.
