World-renowned organizational expert Marie Kondo is now appearing on an original Netflix series of inspiring home makeovers titled Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.
Released on January 1, 2019, the eight new shows in Season 1 run between 35 and 50 minutes each and show Marie Kondo helping American families get rid of clutter to reorganize their lives through her now-famous KonMari Method. The show demonstrates the positive impact the act of tidying up can have on a family’s happiness when they keep only objects that inspire joy.
The 8 Netflix episodes are titled:
Marie Kondo became known following the release of her #1 New York Times best-selling book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” released in 2014. In it, she demonstrates the KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing and storing items you own.
The book’s overview promises, “If you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results.”
There are six rules to Kondo’s KonMari Method:
Marie Kondo is also the author of “Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up”. This book features an illustrated guide to the KonMari Method, with step-by-step folding illustrations and drawings of organized drawers and closets.
In 2017, Marie Kondo released her third book: “The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story.” This is a graphic novel that tells a quirky story of Chiaki, a young woman in Tokyo who transforms her home, work and love life using Kondo’s advice and inspiration. Through a series of entertaining and insightful lessons, Kondo helps Chiaki get her home and life in order. Illustrations by award-winning manga artist Yuko Uramoto.
Marie Kondo’s method of simplifying and organizing calls for you to dump everything into one pile, then sort it according to whether it “sparks joy” in your life or not. If it doesn’t, it goes into the discard pile. The items that do spark joy are organized in the KonMari Method in your drawers, closets and life.
People who do the KonMari Method generally end up with a large pile of stuff that they wonder why they were keeping in the first place! But not to worry, because 123JUNK is nearby to take that discard pile off your hands. We are the next logical step in the organizing process!
You don’t need to sort items in your discard pile. And you don’t need to make just one pile. All you need to do is point the professional, uniformed team members from 123JUNK to the piles you want to disappear. And poof, they’re gone!
We’ll do the job of sorting through your items ourselves and donate household goods and furniture to our local charity partners (and send you a receipt for your donation). We’ll also recycle items to the area recycling center. You’ll not only be helping your own state of life by tidying up, you’ll be helping other families and the environment through our green initiatives.
When you’re ready to tidy up and clean out, and are located in Northern Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C., call 123JUNK. We’ll give you our all-inclusive pricing and schedule a convenient time for pickup. Contact us today.
