The Peppermint actress used the KonMari method to rid her junk drawer of the things that did not bring her joy. In a hilarious video posted to Instagram, Garner finds a series of miscellaneous objects, including a rain bonnet, pantyhose, lip balm, gold doubloons and something from Invisalign. "@MarieKondo — I’m all about it,” Garner wrote alongside the video, followed by the hashtags, #doubloonssparkjoy #junkdrawer and #canyoucomeover with an emoji that’s smiling with gritted teeth.

While attempting to tackle organizing his office, Kondo corrects the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host when he addresses a rumor that you should only own 30 books. "I don’t know where that rumor came from,” Kondo says via her translator during the segment. “That’s a complete misconception.”

The host of Netflix's Patriot Act enlisted Kondo to help him declutter his office and baby's nursery, which he says is "organized chaos." Together, the pair throw out a box of cords and Kondo teaches him how to fold baby clothes. "This is the first step on my journey to be more tidy," the Daily Show alum claims.

The Late Show host knelt down with Kondo and asked her to help him thank his desk for its service — a practice she suggests before starting any home purge. She helps him express his gratitude for the desk and the studio. Colbert also expresses his feelings about Kondo and her organizing methods. "I don't understand anything you say when you're saying it," Colbert says. "But even if you had no translator, I would follow you to a cult compound and never leave."

The cookbook author weighed in with her feelings about Kondo, after an apparent Netflix glitch caused the main image for Kondo's show Tidying Up to show a soldier in the desert with a rifle. Tiegen responded with a joke on Twitter, writing "Does it spark joy motherf—er??" Almost immediately, she tweeted again that she was sorry for swearing at the famously polite organizing guru: "Oh man I feel bad sweet, sweet Marie is going to see that horrible word."

The "Bon Appétit" singer indulged in some unofficial Konmari, admitting she tries to declutter by getting rid of her boyfriend Orlando Bloom's things without asking. “My boyfriend doesn’t even know that I threw away his toiletry bag while he’s been gone,” Perry told Paper. “I told him I got him a new one for Christmas. He said, ‘Oh, this has been around the world for 10 years' and he wanted to keep it in a drawer. I was like, ‘The moment you leave is the moment this thing is going in the trash.'”
