If you like thrift shopping, you’re in luck. 

A new Netflix show called “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” is teaching people to let go of material things. 

CNN reports that thrift stores across the country have seen an increase in donations. 

Thrift stores in our area even hear donors talk about the show’s effect.

“They have mentioned the show, Marie Kondo about her simplistic lifestyle,” said Michael Kloos, General Manager at God’s Storehouse in Topeka. “People have been bringing donations as a direct result of her show definitely.” 

God’s Storehouse said they’re surprised to see the increase even in the winter. Thrift stores typically see this as their slow season with the inclement weather.
