Tidying up with Marie Kondo | Netflix

Tidying up with Marie Kondo.

Watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix has been a bit of a guilty pleasure for the past few weeks.  Eight episodes of this joyful, pint size Japanese lady (and her equally lovely translator) entering people’s home and teaching how to declutter their living spaces which ultimately help them to declutter their lives has been thought provoking at least.
