Happy New Year! If, like me, you have already watched all 8 episodes of the new Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, or if you have even watched one of them, you might already have questions. Do people really store their tupperware that way? Why do most of the episodes skip from clothes to komono — shouldn’t books and papers come in between? When does an item belong in the sentimental category rather than clothes, books, papers, or komono? Does the process of working with a certfied KonMari consultant differ at all from what is depicted in the show? Is the amount of time depicted in the show to declutter a full home realistic for most people?
If you have had any questions after viewing one or more episodes, please post them here. I will do a series of blog posts about the episodes and will answer common questions as I go along.
In the show I couldnt tell how long it took the families to go through the entire process. There was one episode that showed the time stamp and it looked like they were working for months! Does it really take that long? Do you have to work every day?
Great question! I will include an answer in my upcoming Q&A post. Thanks!
