Tidying Up

Now you can experience the journey that others have taken to learn the importance of “sparking joy” in the Netflix original show, Tidying Up. Watch now on Netflix.

Tidying up is based on the KonMari Method which was introduced to the world in Marie Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

Throughout the show, you follow individuals as Marie helps them tackle their cluttered homes and lives using the KonMari Method and find new joy and purpose in their lives.

Check out my review of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and my KonMari Reading with Purpose Challenge

Season 1

Season 1 was released in January 2019. It consists of eight episodes. Each episode introduces new clients struggling with different situations that have caused the clutter in their lives. Marie assists them to address these issues and take the steps necessary to put their homes and lives in order. You quickly learn that The KonMari Method isn’t just about

de-cluttering homes but it is about experiencing a change in life and perspective.

Marie has a soothing and calming effect on her clients. She is non-judgmental of them and their situations. She genuinely wants to help and actually gets excited about the clutter. At one time she opens up some drawers to find them stuffed full and says she loves clutter.

What is the Difference?

What is different in this show than other home improvement shows? It is the clients doing the work not a group of workers who take over. Marie visits on occasion to see how her clients are doing, introduces a new step in the tidying up process, gives them assignments, and then leaves. The rest of the time the show focuses on the individual clients as they work toward accomplishing their homework and putting everything in order.

It also doesn’t cost clients thousands of dollars to put their house in order. It cost them time, effort, reflection, and a little bit of sweat. This process helps to instill gratitude for home and possess, which in turn helps with healing, which is the ultimate message of the KonMari Method. I enjoyed watching each episode and was sad when the last episode ended.

My Favorite Episodes

Tidying with Toddlers

I could relate to this episode because I struggle to keep my house clean with my two little ones. It can be very overwhelming. I love how this couple was able to not only spark joy in their lives by de-cluttering their house but re-spark the joy in their marriage.

Sparking Joy after a Loss

This episode was heart-wrenching to watch. It was about a widow who was trying to move on with her life after the loss of her husband but was struggling to do so. Marie Kondo was able to help her say goodbye to her deceased husband’s belongings and make space in her life to do the things she loves.

Making Room for Baby.

Any expectant parents can relate to the overwhelming desire to have your life in order before your baby arrives. I love how Marie was able to help this couple each address varying issues for holding onto things, and be able to let go.

Tidying Up's Nominations and Awards

Tidying Up was so popular that is was nominated for two Emmy's for 2019: Outstanding Structured Reality Program and Outstanding Host for A Reality or Competition Program. It was beat by Queer Eye and RuPaul, respectively.

Will There be a Season 2?

Season two has yet to be announced. Fans are holding their breath in anticipation of the next seasons. Right now Marie Kondo has been focusing on writing two new books.

One is a children's book, Kiki & Jax: The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship, released on November 4, 2019.

The other book, Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life, will be released on April 7, 2020.
