Netflix has a new hit on its hands, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, that Americans simply can’t get enough of.
“Her tips are so great – especially the one about clearing out musty old books and relatives that are cluttering up your home.”
Kondo, the Japanese organizing consultant behind the KonMari method of keeping things neat and tidy, is proving hugely popular, especially with those prone to hoarding old newspapers and other junk like cantankerous family members.
“Just throw them out – it may hurt at first but you’ll get over it in no time!”
Kondo also has sage advice geared towards newlyweds, who may be inexperienced in managing a home.
“Just go with your gut when designing a layout. If you don’t like it after a few months, simply throw out your furniture and spouse and start again!”
