yeah i decided to watch it and its kinda...wholesome? i guess is the word im thinking of?The first episode of this wasn't great. I felt the couple wasn't very sympathetic, their kids were annoying little shits and the guy is probably cheating on his wife.
The next few episodes I watched were a lot better and more wholesome with better people in them.
But if you want to really do this cleaning method I think it's important to read the book. The show is fun and it re-inspired me to clean but I think it glosses over a lot of important stuff in the book. I feel you could very easily watch it and take away the message "get rid of stuff, lots of stuff you don't need it" or just end up organizing everything but neither is really quite it. Some people have said Kondo comes off quite strict in the book, but she's so nice and fun in the TV show that I feel they complement each other. I like Tidying Up.
