Twitter Has A Lot Of Thoughts After Watching 'Tidying Up' On Netflix

If you haven't had a chance to watch Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix, it's a must.

The show has sparked a lot of emotions for people on Twitter and after watching the show, you'll totally understand why.

There's something both calming, relatable, and subtly hilarious about it, and we're obsessed.

The show has been described as the next "Queer Eye".

And anyone who has watched Queer Eye knows what a bold statement that is — but it's true!

What's great about this show is that Marie Kondo doesn't actually do any cleaning.

She's not a maid brought in to make your house tidy. She gives helpful direction, and then the homeowners do the actual work — as they should.

Throughout the show, Marie teaches you how to love and respect the home that you're in, and the items you have.

At first, it seemed kind of silly. Eventually, however, it has lead a lot of us to really appreciate the things we have.

When sorting through your clothes, Marie encourages you to only keep the items that "spark joy."

And if you donate something, you're supposed to say "thank you" to it for allowing you wear it.

Again, kind of weird at first, but I'm also into it.

I definitely went into my closet and started this process of thanking my clothes, and getting rid of the ones that no longer spark joy.

That's why this show is so great — it motivates you to start living a more organized lifestyle, and it doesn't feel like work.

We need to talk about the family in the first episode.


It was awkward! Describing it as the 'Dinner Party' episode in The Office is actually wildly accurate.

At first they seem really nice.

But they start to call each other "babe" a lot, and most of the time it's not in an endearing fashion.

There was a lot of attitude just seething out of television.

Anyway, people on Twitter were quick to take notice of this couple.

But if you only got through the first episode, don't worry. There are a lot of other great couples on the show that make it well worth watching.

A lot of people shared their tidying accomplishments.

It's actually quite impressive. I'm willing to bet that a lot of people's shirts will be stacked like this from now on.

Kitchens and pantries have never looked better!

When you have kids in the family, the kitchen is one area of the home that's tricky to keep organized. Of course, Marie has all the tips to help with that.

Hint: it's all about organizational compartments.

Everyone started throwing their entire closet onto their bed.

If you're like the woman in the first episode, you might cry and be overwhelmed with how much you own, seeing it piled up so high.

Or you might be like me and cry because now you have to put it all back — neatly.

Marie is honestly one of the kindest souls I've ever seen grace my television screen.

But if this wasn't the spiciest shade of 2019, I don't know what is.

When tidying up, Marie categorizes everything first.

And yes, books get their own category, meanwhile, the kitchen, bathroom and garage all fall under one grouping.


And it's clear that Marie practices what she preaches.

Several times throughout the episodes, she mentions that she has clutter, and she lets things get messy from time to time.

Seeing both her and her translator repeat outfits just confirms that she's legit.

Overall, she's a positive light, and can literally do no wrong.

If keeping a tidy home leads to being this happy all the time, then bring on the tiny organizational bins.

Of course, some people just want to watch a good show without having to actually worry about their own mess.

Which is fine! Whatever sparks joy, right?
