In our newly Marie Kondo–obsessed world, it is perfectly acceptable to find yourself repeating the key KonMari mantra, “Does this item spark joy?” all throughout the day. But of course those items aren’t just limited to paperwork and old sweaters. You can also KonMari your relationships to rid yourself of those toxic individuals who are cluttering your happiness and mussing up your joy. And this is exactly what a slew of entrepreneurial ladies are doing right this second by listing their recent exes’ things on resale sites like OfferUp.
While pretty much all secondhand retailers have been experiencing an increase in the number of donations and listings thanks to Kondo, the resale site OfferUp has also been noting an uptick in the number of listings that describe the item as previously belonging to the seller’s ex. And honestly, if your ex isn’t going to come by to pick up that random pile of stuff that’s still sitting at your place, then why shouldn’t you profit from it?
A lot of the items themselves are already appealing (hello, brand-new KitchenAid stand mixer)…
