Get ready to binge-watch the show that will (finally) inspire you to tidy up.
In case you’re not familiar, Marie Kondo’s KonMari Method is all about sparking joy in your home by tidying things up in the most magical way possible. The Japanese organizing consultant's decluttering technique has swept the world, not only because it's made people's homes more orderly, but also calmer and happier. Basically, it’s a method for rethinking the meaning of everything you own.
Once Kondo’s first book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up gained popularity, she quickly became a household name. In the self-help book, she demystifies the fear that comes along with organizing and can make the process downright overwhelming. For example, she says that you should sort through items before starting to organize. In a nutshell, the KonMari method is holding something in your hand and asking yourself, “Does this item spark joy in my life?” If not, it’s time to toss it out.
Now, you’ll be able to see her methods in action, thanks to her new Netflix show. In her post announcing the show, Kondo wrote, "Valentine’s Day surprise! I will be bringing the life-changing magic of tidying to a show on Netflix, where I’ll be guiding individuals to spark joy in their homes and lives." Although Kondo calls it a surprise, rumors about the show have been circulating for a while now. The organizing guru herself tipped us off when she posted a casting call on Instagram back in December for those in the L.A. area. At that point, we didn't know which network had picked up the series, but we now know it will be available for us to binge-watch on Netflix. The original casting call said that the makeovers would be shot between March and June of 2018, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that it will air soon afterwards.
Until then, keep an eye on Marie Kondo's social media channels (both Instagram and Twitter) to get all of the surprise details as they pop up.
