Netflix rang in the new year by dropping “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” and I am obsessed.
The show is informative, soothing, and has already made me cry ~15 times, just three episodes in! It’s difficult to point to just one reason it’s so addictive and tearjerking. Marie’s endless optimism and positive attitude is certainly a factor, as is her ability to genuinely help couples tidy their homes—and their relationships, at the same damn time!
Yes, it’s a makeover show. But Kondo’s unique methodology, calming personality, and “spark joy” philosophy make it so, so much more. If you know, you know.

I need a Marie Kondo whodunit where a bunch of dinner guests are bumped off one by one for not bringing joy.

Marie Kondo thinks she can get me to give up objects I have no attachment to, but joke's on her! I've seen Pixar's complete filmography, and I can form attachments to EV ER Y THING!!
