Anyone else here dying to feel joy and clean out that box of papers you’re afraid to throw away? Perhaps simultaneously? Marie Kondo, inventor of the KonMari cleaning method outlined in her organization book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, is shooting two half-hour docu-specials in New York City this month. The specials, shot by Japanese public broadcaster NHK World TV and slated to air later this spring, will feature Kondo helping messy residents with “the decluttering of local homes.” These should be excellent. If any populace needs KonMari more while simultaneously being able to take advice from a stranger less, you’d sure like to know where they live.
