A Netflix tidying guru has sparked a charity shop boom, as branches of Salvation Army, Scope and the British Heart Foundation have said she has led to increase in donations.
It comes as decluttering expert Marie Kondo has rapidly risen to fame with her “KonMari” household organisation method, which promises to provide not only a de-cluttered house, but also a clean mind.
Through her hit Netflix show she is teaching those with messy tendencies to get their homes in order by throwing out old and unwanted items to create a calmer home environment.
Many people following the craze claim her various techniques have helped their mental health, and are adamant that a clean and organised home helps them feel calm.
Charity shops across the country said they had seen donations of clothes double over the past few weeks since Ms Kondo’s show was released on the streaming service.
