A New Show On Netflix is Inspiring People To Clean Up

If your New Year’s resolution was to make your bedroom look less like the bottom of a hamper of dirty clothes, you’re in luck.

On New Year’s Day, Netflix premiered Tidying Up with Marie Kondo — a reality show in which the world-famous Japanese organization consultant helps people transform their lives through the simple act of tidying up.

Kondo first introduced Americans to the joys of decluttering with her bestseller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which was published in the U.S. in 2014.

Her mantra is simple: look at your belongings and think, “Does this bring me joy?” If the answer is yes, you keep them. If the answer is no, then off to the Salvation Army they go.

The eight-episode show only just debuted, but by all accounts it seems to be the first binge-worthy hit of 2019.
