Jennifer Garner is trying to spark some joy in her junk drawer.

The Peppermint actress posted a video on her Instagram showing her struggling to clean out a strange collection of items even she seems surprised to own.

In the clip, Garner sports the hood to a jacket that she pulled from the drawer as she pulls belts and other trinkets from her cluttered storage space.

“Is this a rain bonnet?” she asks while tying the strings beneath her chin. “Legit. Is it?

Next, she pulls out a pair of Silken Mist pantyhose while still sporting the hood on her head.

“Why?” she asks with a laugh. “Why do I have it? I don’t know.”

Afterward, Garner looks confused while looking at what appears to be a belt, or a pair of cords and asks “Is this for the body?”

Garner follows the items with something from Invisalign, a slew of belts, a highlighter and a Ziploc bag containing gold coins she calls “doubloons.”

At one point, the actress breaks to put on some lip balm she finds in the drawer before continuing her search and finding a lint roller and a Popsocket, which also hilariously tagged alongside Invisalign in her video.

To finish off the video, Garner finds what appears to be a vaporizer cell phone, which she describes as “one of those things that make people smoke their phone” as she gestures a fake cigarette into her mouth.

“@MarieKondo — I’m all about it,” Garner writes, followed by the hashtags, #doubloonssparkjoy #junkdrawer and #canyoucomeover with an emoji that’s smiling with gritted teeth.

Garner isn’t the only person who’s suddenly become inspired to organize their home. After Marie Kondo’s 8-episode season of Tidying Up released on Netflix on Jan. 1, fans have been documenting their obsession on social media, and buying Kondo’s 2011 book in record numbers again, placing it back on the bestseller list.

The KonMari Method as laid out in her cult-favorite first book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, instructs that rather than judging items by how often they’re used or their value, cleaners should pick up each item they own and ask themselves if it “sparks joy.” If it does, it stays. If it doesn’t, it goes.

Before getting rid of anything, Kondo says to thank the item for its service.

Kondo’s method, which was first popularized in Japan, where she’s from (her business is now based in Los Angeles), spread across the globe with the popularity of her book, which has sold 8 million of copies worldwide and been translated into 40 languages.
