Does She Spark Joy? Sorting Through Marie Kondo

I didn’t seek out Marie Kondo, but I can’t seem to escape her. My news feeds, my Netflix previews, even at my women’s ministry meeting at church, there she is. It’s as if everyone is announcing that she has been raised up for such a time as this. Her mission? The decluttering of our households. Kondo launched a new documentary based upon her organization process, popularized by her international best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering...

Small Organized Spaces: Organizing a Pet Drawer in 15 Minutes or Less

The following is a guest post, in the small organized spaces series, about organizing a pet drawer in 15 minutes or less from regular contributor, Morgan from Morganize with Me . The question of the month seems to be, “Are you watching the Marie Kondo show?” Although most of the people who have asked me don’t quite get the name right. They call it the tidying show, the Netflix organizing series, or my favorite, the Kondo-ing thing. My answer is, “Yes!” I binged watched...

It’s all an effort to test whether audiences are ready to embrace even more virtual avatars — including ...

Small-Screen Stream: ‘Atlanta,’ ‘Black Mirror’ and Other Streaming Series to Catch Up on in the New Year

(Welcome to Small-Screen Stream, a feature where we share the best television shows streaming and where you can watch them.) It’s a brand new year and the slates are wiped clean – which means it’s time to start playing catch-up with TV-watching once again! The endless viewing cycle never ends, but streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu make it easy to sit back, light up the screen, and get lost in a new series. I, for one, spent my holidays watching nothing but junk-food TV, s...

Marie Kondo Has A Reasonable Response To Your Reasonable Criticisms

It’s rare, even among celebrities and mega-influencers, that a person manages to carve out a niche so well-defined that their name becomes a symbol of their singular ideology. Think Gwyneth Paltrow, Sophia Amoruso, or unfortunate as it is, Donald Trump. Perhaps Marie Kondo isn’t a household name of that magnitude, but she certainly belongs on the same list. Since releasing her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, in 2012, the Japanese org...

Marie Kondo v. Tsundoku: Two Japanese Philosophies on Whether to Keep or Discard Unread Books

Marie Kondo on Turning Her ‘Life-Changing’ Book Into a Hit Netflix Show

Millions of Americans are turning to a 34-year-old Japanese “organizing consultant” to help de-clutter their homes, and for Marie Kondo, the tidying expert and eponymous star behind Netflix’s “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo,” there’s nothing that “sparks joy” more than seeing people take ownership of their belongings — and their lives.

Good thing you’re busy Kondo-ing your crap this week, because the best Netflix has to offer is Solo: A Star Wars Story (Wednesday), which I’d like to get excited about, but the sheer volume of “Star Wars stories” available to me on Netflix makes the arrival of yet another a nonevent.

Marie Kondo in the Garden, and Life

I couldn’t agree more with what this Washington Post reviewer wrote about Marie Kondo’s approach to “tidying up” in her new show on Netflix. Unlike her TV predecessors, Kondo brings a calming influence to the surroundings — even asking the owners if she may take a moment to kneel in a particular spot and silently greet their homes. This is a noble and overdue concept for the home makeover and real estate genre — a chance to express gratitude for any home, rather than the perfect home....

Noteworthy in 2018: Schell’s picks

Unlike those big-media favorites lists that appear in mid-December to grease the skids of the Great Shopping Season, my year-end reckonings dawdle until the last moment and don’t claim to define the best of anything. But with audio streaming, social media and other factors pushing the contemporary music landscape into an increasingly variegated but fragmented state, some measure of thoughtful inventorying seems both prudent and practical. In that spirit, here’s a biased and opinionated survey of...

How Cleaning Clutter Could Clear Your Mind

We are acquisitive beings. We collect items that show the world who we are and what we value. As I look around my home, I see books. Lots and lots of books. Nearly each room contains them. Clearly, they matter to me. I have more of them than any other item. I have read most of them cover to cover and some await perusal, for pleasure and work. My home is light and airy, colorfully and creatively decorated, kind of like its owner. Unlikely that anyone would call me a hoarder, unless they lived...

As Woolsey fire winds down, Agoura Hills, Malibu residents prepare for rain

About a dozen people went to work Monday morning filling sandbags and hauling them away at Fire Station 89 off the 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills, busily preparing for another potential disaster this week: With rain in the forecast, residents and emergency officials said they are worried that hillsides scarred in the recent Woolsey fire could mean flooding and mud flows. The fire that ripped through some Agoura Hills communities on Friday before marching south to Malibu, destroying at least 1,500 s...

On the Organized Home editors’ radars this week: Marie Kondo’s first storage product, envy-inducing built-ins, and more. Here’s a look: Above: “The cynical side of me thinks Marie Kondo‘s Hikidashi Boxes, priced at $89 for a set of three, is a naked attempt to monetize her popularity and take advantage of Kondo groupies who are happy to shell out a whole lot of money for what are essentially shoeboxes. The fan-girl part of me, though, desperately yearns for a set,” writes Fan of everyone’s fa...

Tunable quantum criticality and super-ballistic transport in a "charge" Kondo circuit

Quantum phase transitions (QPTs) are ubiquitous in strongly correlated materials. However, the microscopic complexity of these systems impedes the quantitative understanding of QPTs. We observed and thoroughly analyzed the rich strongly correlated physics in two profoundly dissimilar regimes of quantum criticality. With a circuit implementing a quantum simulator for the three-channel Kondo model, we reveal the universal scalings toward different low-temperature fixed points and along the multipl...

Doped Kondo chain, a heavy Luttinger liquid [Physics]

The doped 1D Kondo Lattice describes complex competition between itinerant and magnetic ordering. The numerically computed wave vector-dependent charge and spin susceptibilities give insights into its low-energy properties. Similar to the prediction of the large N approximation, gapless spin and charge modes appear at the large Fermi wave vector. The...
