Marie Kondo has once again inspired people to go through their closets and kitchens, assessing what brings joy and what should go into the donation box. Kondo, who became known to American audiences in 2014, when her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” was published in the U.S., now has a Netflix show. The series, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” has spurred more purging and self-reflection in people who hope following her method can bring order and joy to their lives.
