Warm up your label makers

It’s been four years since Marie Kondo first appeared on our screens in her hit Netflix series Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, and quite frankly, our hoarding habits have been non-existent ever since.

But now, the Japanese sorting savant is back with a new three-part TV show, titled Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo, focusing on eliminating clutter, but with a different focus.

The unscripted series follows Kondo’s mission to help three small businesses and their employees to find joy within their incredibly busy and taxing lives. Shifting the focus from how to tidy to why we should tidy, Kondo aims to transform mentalities toward the time-consuming task and demonstrate finding joy in the mundane.

What Is The Plot Of Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo?

The brand new unscripted, three-episode series follows Kondo’s experience while helping the employees of three small businesses in the United States to transform their mindset and approach to life.

Kondo’s new unscripted series follows her experience helping three small businesses and their employees. “Tidying up is a powerful, tender act that can completely transform someone’s mindset and approach to life,” Kondo told People. “That’s why I am thrilled about my new series, which shifts the focus from how to tidy to why you should tidy — and the emotional benefits that resonate in relationships, businesses and communities.  I am so excited to finally share it with the world!”

As per Netflix’s official synopsis, the show also aims to “help people transform their homes while transforming their lives in surprising and emotional ways.”

“Marie takes her life-changing method a step further to help three deserving businesses organise their workplace along with an emotional tidy up of one employee’s life whether it’s in the home, work, personal life and/or relationships.”
