So…there’s this cool, new thing called KonMari.

Marie Kondo is the brains behind this Japanese-style decluttering operation.

Check out her Netflix series called “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” where you can see KonMari in action.

And get this, if you use this method one, you will never have to tidy you home again! Are you on board, yet?

Okay, so you’ve decided that you will try it out. You’re probably going back and forth between whether or not you will keep or get rid of a certain item.

Kondo says to simply look at it.

Take a pair of too skinny jeans, for example. Do the jeans make you want to exercise so that you can fit into them, or do they make you dread that fact that you have to exercise in order to fit into them?

Come on, be honest!

It can be difficult to let go of some things because of the memories, but Kondo wants for you to thank that item for its service, and then let it go.

But, what exactly does this Japanese-style decluttering and Buengo have in common? They both bring joy.

The purpose of KonMari is to place great importance on being mindful and introspective while also bringing joy to your life. Buengo passes that joy onto someone else who is in need.

Instead of throwing that t-shirt away, sell it on Buengo! Bring joy to the buyer’s life and to the charity or cause that you choose.

You know what they say: One man’s clutter is another man’s treasure.

Here are the six basic rules of tidying that you can use when preparing to sell on Buengo:

  1. Commit yourself to tidying up
  2. Imagine your ideal lifestyle
  3. Finish discarding first (do not put the items you want away until you remove everything you do not want)
  4. Tidy by category, not by location
  5. Follow the right order (clothes first, books, papers and then miscellaneous)
  6. Ask yourself if it sparks joy

Well? Does it spark joy? If the answer is no, then sell it on Buengo!

Thank you very much!
