Netflix’s new hit show is kicking off a decluttering craze.
‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’ started streaming on January 1st.
The series teaches people how to better organize their homes.

Its host Marie Kondo is a best selling author with a simple method for clearing out clutter.
She says if an item does not ‘spark joy,’ then get rid of it.
Kondo also shares expert advice for storing the stuff you decide to keep.
She says if you organize your house the right way once, you will never have to do it again.

The show seems to be inspiring a lot of people to clean house.
Charity groups and thrift stores are now reporting a huge increase in donations.

And here’s another good reason to get on board: psychologists say clutter can weigh on you mentally, affecting your sleep and ability to focus.
