Netflix’s reality show, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” started out with a bang; its first season premiered in the online streaming platform exactly on January 1, and it has sent netizens into a cleaning frenzy.
The series, which stars “the cleanest person in the world” in Marie Kondo, features the same elements as many other home makeover series. What sets the show apart from others is Kondo’s comforting, compassionate nature which helps boost others with enthusiasm to clean their homes.
“In a series of inspiring home makeovers, world-renowned tidying expert Marie Kondo helps clients clear out the clutter – and choose joy,” Netflix wrote in the description.

After watching the series, some people couldn’t help but give out her KonMari Method a try, Mashable reported. This method, as said in her official website, helps people decide which items to throw out judging by its significance in one’s life.
“The KonMari Method™ encourages tidying by category – not by location – beginning with clothes, then moving on to books, papers, komono (miscellaneous items), and, finally, sentimental items,” Kondo writes in her official site. “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.”
So inspired to do the Mari Kondo method this New Year #Netflix
