But while the reality show has certainly had a positive impact, it seems to be causing a few problems too.
In the United States, one mother is experiencing full-blown ‘Kondo regret’ after she donated her son’s old souvenir mug to charity after watching the popular Netflix show.
Watch the trailer for Tidying Up With Marie Kondo below.
After donating the mug to Goodwill, Lindsay Preiss discovered the old Mickey Mouse mug was actually filled with $6,500 in cash.
Just days after selling his car, Lindsay’s son 27-year-old Devon Silvey had stored the cash in the mug at his parents’ house for safe-keeping while he moved apartments.
However, the mug had a lid on it, so Lindsay didn’t see the cash sitting inside.
“[I feel] like the worst mum in the world,” the Atlanta mother told local news station WSB-TV. “I mean, I feel terrible.”
