Synopsis: Today, we are covering the Netflix series, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo”.  Marie Kondo, a Japanese organizing consultant and author has taken the world by storm. Named one of Time’s most influential people in 2015, Marie wrote the book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying-Up”. Which has been a best seller in Japan and Europe, as well as being published in the United States. 
Marie teaches the KonMari method of organizing, a method of gathering all belongings together by category and lumping them in a pile to get a full view of what you really have. She does not emphasize throwing items away, instead she encourages to keep that which sparks joy in your life, and to get rid of the things that do not.
Now, with Marie in the United States, going to family homes that are bogged down by clutter, we start to connect with the families she is helping. we might find ourselves understanding where their clutter came from, and why it’s so hard to let go. What’s framed as a series to simply show people how to tidy up, ends up being a documentation of the families, their homes, their lives, and their motivation to hold on.
