Has anyone else caught the new series, "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo," on Netflix? It's providing me with good inspiration and motivation to declutter and simplify. I love seeing the before and after shots of rooms and closets. The change in participant attitudes is also noticeable after they declutter and they seem much lighter, happier, and free-er (is that a word?). I can't help but think of the sustainability benefits to living a decluttered and more spacious lifestyle – less consumerism, less waste (after the decluttering anyway), and improved mental well-being. I highly recommend the series!

I just noticed this last weekend, and 2 of my friends were just this week talking about this. One said it has helped her anxiety.. I need to check this out.

Oh, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo was a great watch! I like her approach: she doesn't put anyone down, adjusts her method for a grieving woman who had lost her husband, and the people on the show had a varied amount of clutter (from seemingly insignificant to vast amounts). It gave me a few ideas on how to best tidy up certain areas/things.

Some other good watches:
-The Haunting of Hill House – 10/10 would watch again. Amazing horror series that has made me shed more tears (of sadness, not terror) than any series has any right to.

-Lost in Space – A remake of the 1965 TV series. Wasn't expecting a Netflix Sci-Fi series to look so good, but they did an absolutely amazing job with this! Cinematography was just, mwah, beautiful.

-Homecoming – Psychological thriller starring Julia Roberts and based on the podcast of the same name. I was thrilled to see this on screen after listening to the podcast some time ago. The TV series was just as good!

-The Keepers: Docuseries following the story of Sister Cathy Cesnik and sexual abuse at a Catholic School in Baltimore, MD.

-Evil Genius: 4 part true crime docuseries about a truly interesting case dubbed the "collar bomb/pizza bomb" case.

-Happy Valley: a British TV series about a small town female police sergeant trying to carry on with her every day duties while moving on from the suicide of her daughter.

Currently binging: The Good Place, Manifest,The Handmaid's Tale, and Hunting Hitler.

@jitaeri – I agree, I really like Marie Kondo's approach. She never shames a family or individual about the state of their home or the things they own. She also doesn't force people to just get rid of things…it's all about having gratitude for the things in one's life. I also love her practice of thanking items for the purpose they served before donating or throwing them away.

We loved the first season of Atypical. We stopped watching part way through the second season (got frustrated with the parents' situation/characters) but do plan to resume 🙂
