PITMAN, N.J. -

The latest Netflix phenomenon, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, has been inspiring people to organize their homes, and some local organizations are grateful that many are doing it in an eco-friendly way. 

If you’re one of many trying the KonMari method, officials with the Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity may have the tools and resources to achieve that new clutter-free life that you’ve been searching for.

“We’ve been out in the community getting donations of furniture and appliances and things that would generally go into a landfill," says Isabella. "People are actually donating their stuff [like] furniture, and other people are using it. We’re recycling it.

"We get things in like old antique chairs and bedroom sets, and these are things that either we sell it as an antique and if we can’t, it goes down to our warehouse."

One could easily find deep discounts from building materials, home furnishings, and bedroom necessities if you’re looking to fill your space.

But when it comes to de-cluttering space, Isabella says he is a huge fan of the KonMari method.

“It just simplifies your life [and] I guess that’s what people are thinking about now," says Isabella.

Habitat for Humanity Restore officials also help make the process of de-cluttering stress free.

“We’ll pick it up for free, they don’t have to bring it here,” says Isabella.
