Marie Kondo’s ‘Tidying Up’ Might Just Clutter Your House More
The basic premise of this article is that with more people donating their great old stuff, this gives you the opportunity to get designer clothes, perfectly functional kitchen appliances, and more for extremely cheap.
Over the weekend, I decided to watch the show 'Tidying Up With Marie Kondo' on Netflix with my wife. Most likely you already know what it is, and who Marie Kondo is, but for those who don't ... Marie Kondo is a Japanese woman who wrote a very popular book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing," which now has Marie going from house to house helping families declutter their homes.
My wife and I were really into the idea of minimizing our stuff and getting down to the bare essentials, but something else dawned on me.
If a lot of people start watching this show, and decluttering becomes a trend ... won't there be a lot of people giving old stuff to Goodwill and other organizations like it?
Then I saw a Buzzfeed article confirming my thoughts. Check it out here. People are donating great clothes, books, accessories, appliances, and way more, which means for the folks that don't mind a bit of clutter ... it's time to rack up on some goodies.
Keep in mind there are folks out there that really need good clothes, and this could be a great opportunity for them to get clothes for job interviews, or simply just to stay warm. Having said that, there's no real law against popping your head into Goodwill to see if any new treasures have materialized.
Let us know if you decide to check out the East Texas Goodwill stores, and show us what you scored. With $100 you might find yourself under a pile of clothes someone just cleaned their house of.
