As you scroll through your social media news feeds you may notice a lot of your friends sharing photos of their homes and referencing the hashtag #TidyingUp or talking about how their household items do or don't "spark joy" in their lives.

So what's it all about? A large majority of these cleaning posts you're seeing on social media are because of Netflix's new show, "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo."


The show debuted on January 1, 2019 and in two weeks, Marie herself has more than doubled her instagram followers because of the excitement around her show.

Marie is helping people all over the world de-clutter by sharing her "KonMari" method — you only keep items that "spark joy" in your life, and you thank the items that don't, before you toss them away or donate them — with everyone in her book and on her brand new series.

Some of the reactions to her method are pretty hilarious. Check out the best social media posts we've found:
