If you haven’t jumped on the Marie Kondo bandwagon, what have you even been doing?
The Japanese organising consultant and author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, has taken the internet by storm with her new Netflix show, Tidying Up with Mari Kondo. And, as always, there are mixed opinions. Nothing sums up the whole spectacle better than these tweets, so prepare to be entertained.
These tweets show that tidying up gets… complicated when it comes to kids and families.
Hugged my toddler + said thank you then considered donating him since he did not bring me joy last night. Am I taking this #MarieKondo thing too far?

I’ve watched the first episode of the Marie Kondo show — the one where the guy angrily demands that his part-time working wife, who raises their two toddlers alone, do more laundry — and clearly, KonMari doesn’t work, because by the end of the episode he’s still there

Even pets aren’t safe from Marie Kondo’s methods…

Some people clearly can’t live up to Marie’s methods
There’s a fundamental flaw in the #MarieKondo “Does it bring you joy?” test.
Sometimes it’s not HAVING the actual things that bring you the joy, it’s watching people who come over look at the things and struggle to contain their intense jealously that brings you the joy.

If you find yourself short a few friends this year, Marie Kondo may be to blame.
how to tidy up your friendships with the Marie Kondo method:
1. hold your friend up
2. check if your friend sparks joy
3. if no, thank your friend and put them in the trash

As you can see from these tweets, folding is a big issue that came out of the show
I’m at a laundromat and this one woman keeps trying to fold things like #MarieKondo, muttering “This brings me joy… this brings me joy…” as she does it. You go, laundry lady! Feel that joy!

Sorry I had to cancel, I had a personal emergency. It turns out I’ve been folding my clothes the wrong way. #MarieKondo

[slowly lowering myself into a trashcan as marie kondo watches] this no longer brings me joy

And if there are any guns in your episode, it’s a sign you are watching the wrong thing
