Although it has its emotional moments, this is an upbeat show with a positive message that has already inspired some viewers to start tidying up.

Top Critic

Kondo improves these people's lives by giving them the tools to let go of what they don't want - without, by any stretch, making them get rid of anything (books or otherwise) they feel they love or need.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

The key difference between Tidying Up and most other reality shows: There's no sense of competition, and the ostensible makeover at the heart of every episode simply involves regular people becoming happier and more at ease in their own home.

Jan 4, 2019 | Full Review…

If you're not already a KonMari convert, there's a chance the series won't spark anything at all.

Jan 2, 2019 | Full Review…

It can sometimes feel as if Kondo and her producers settle for small victories without addressing some of the homeowners' personal issues that still simmer just beneath the surface.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Watching can be a very soothing experience, and also one that's motivational.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

The personal journeys elevate the series beyond a simple how-to guide, but watching these folks suddenly improve their lives over 35 to 45 minutes is, perhaps, overwrought and rushed.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's both inspiring-I wanted to go re-fold all my shirts-and yet instantly boring to watch another person decide what to do with a shirt.

Nov 27, 2019 | Full Review…

A very bland and uninteresting program. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo delivers on several expectations itself.

Jul 3, 2019 | Full Review…

[Tidying Up with Marie Kondo] is yet another of those shows that shouldn't really work but ends up being a huge hit around the globe.

Jul 2, 2019 | Full Review…

Although more clearly a work of entertainment than her mega-selling books, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo is also presented as a learning experience.

    We don't deserve her!

    Con mucho potencial pero con una producción muy pobre, es lenta y molesta. Las traducciones al español son incorrectas.

    ONG I am addicted to this series! Marie is delightful and Greg stories are sweet. I wish they edited to show a broader view of the total tidying process, as some episodes skip over important details and steps, but looking forward to more seasons!

    You should really read the book before you watch this show. You won’t really grasp what Marie is doing. Cute show. It the book is way better.

    I have been a KonMari fan for almost a year and waiting for this show since the first time I watched the trailer. It released on the perfect time that everyone needs their new year resolution. The show contains a unique Asian flavor that lack of tension and conflict but just fun to watch even all 8 episodes at one time. Believe or not, though you might have to go through the same steps of how to organize your space with every single family, it did help you to stand up after 3 hours couch potato journey supervising KonMari save America. Just follow the Netflix show and go get your tidying homework done, now or never.
