Are you the type of person who can’t see the floor of their bedroom due to extreme mess? If so, then we’ve got the perfect show on Netflix for you to binge. Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up is legit a must-watch if organization doesn’t come easily to you.
Netflix announced the series on Dec. 12, writing: “Tidy guru Marie Kondo comes to the rescue by helping people tackle the clutter that’s holding them back. It all comes down to one question: does it spark joy?” No shade to whoever wrote that excerpt, but it hardly encompasses just how impressive Marie’s skills are.
So much so, that after the show aired on Jan. 1, viewers flocked to social media to gush over how impactful the 34-year-old’s tips have been to them. “My wife watches Tidying Up with Marie Kondo once,” one person wrote on Twitter, along with a picture of some seriously organized blue jeans.
“Watched Tidying Up with Marie Kondo [and] was inspired to clean out a closet and fold our three messiest drawers… and let me tell you, it was therapeutic and those drawers can now close,” added another.

As positive as the reaction to Marie’s show has been, some viewers feel that her methods are a bit, er, extreme. Basically, she asks people on the show whether or not the items in their homes “spark joy.” If the answer is no, it’s immediately thrown in the trash/donated.
With that, hundreds of trolls have essentially tweeted about throwing themselves out. LOL. “After a heated discussion with Marie Kondo I’ve decided to throw myself in the trash,” someone quipped. TBH, that’s not exactly the point of the show, but, hey! Who are we to judge?
Applying Marie’s “does it spark joy?” concept to other areas of your life is actually a pretty solid idea. For example, “does your boyfriend spark joy?” No? Throw him in the trash.
