When Japanese author and minimalist organizer Marie Kondo released her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, she instantly attracted a niche of minimal-living followers everywhere.\nMarie Kondo was way ahead of her time with this book released in 2012, long before the minimalist trend surfaced. Although we all realized our culture places way too much emphasis on buying and hanging onto useless crap, as show through TV shows like Hoarders first released in 2009 demonstrated. But we didn't - and still don't- fully understand the extent of the profound psychological and emotional impact that mess and clutter can have on our mind, body, and soul.\nREAD ALSO: Netflix Is Now Warning Viewers To Stop Hurting Themselves With The Dangerous "Bird Box Challenge"\nQueue Marie Kondo to save the day with her new show and Netflix Original all about decluttering and tidying your way to a stress-free life. Her method is simple: toss anything and everything that doesn't "spark joy."\nIt's unlikely that a show that is literally about cleaning would trigger such widespread attention and craze. But it seems like the theme of Marie Kondo's reality show - we buy too much stuff - has really struck a chord. Because even if our mess isn't the nightmare-levels as the people featured on the show, we all have some mess we could get rid of.\nThe internet is starting to explode with Tweets of people who are applying the Kondo method to their own home and attempting to "spark joy" in their lives through the art of tidying up.\nThrew out all the clothes I own that don't 'spark joy' (a la #MarieKondo). Got 3 pairs of pyjamas and my wedding dress left. 😂😂😂\n— welshlucy (@welshlucy) January 9, 2019\nmarie kondo just pointed a gun at me and told me to give her one good reason as to why i need two crock pots. idk how she even got in my apartment\n— Trey Smith (@SlimiHendrix) January 8, 2019\nSome people think we should apply this philosophy to all parts of life\nMarie Kondo: “does this spark joy” Me: “no” *throws men in the trash*\n— #DearNonNatives (@dearnonnatives) January 10, 2019\nToo funny not to share 😂#TidyingUp #MarieKondo pic.twitter.com/jH7g1IcPJf\n— Van Callejo (@vanmcallejo) January 10, 2019\nMarie Kondo herself is so perfect she must be an alien\nMarie Kondo is so pure\n— Wasabi 🐝 (@cleanyoungmess) January 10, 2019\nThey cut before you can see but the black van that picks up Marie Kondo actually lifts off the ground and flies her back to her planet\n— natalie tran (@natalietran) January 6, 2019\nSome people are already skeptical of her methods...\nDO NOT watch Marie Kondo’s Tidying up series on Netflix.
