This show idea is not a new one. The difference with Tidying Up totally lies in Marie Kondo. There is something quite calming and soothing in watching and listening to this lovely little woman. She is so sweetly motivating and so thoughtful of her clients and their particular needs. There is certainly a spiritual element in her approach. She never judges the clients and their mess, even if some of them are quite huge. I like how her show has a variety of clients in different situations as to appeal to everyone. Each show tends to emphasize something unique that her approach addresses. If you are looking to simplify your life, watching this series may give you some helpful hints in getting started.
