Spring cleaning: How your neighbors on Nextdoor can help you Marie Kondo your life

Written by Annie Barco

Are you, like us, obsessed with the Netflix show “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”? Never before have we felt so inspired to get our spring clean on. And the best part is we don’t have to do it alone! Our neighbors can help us big time when it comes to tidying up. Check out our top three tips for how neighbors can help you Marie Kondo your life:

For sale and free: If it’s not sparking joy, it’s time to say goodbye. Luckily, Nextdoor’s For Sale and Free section makes it easy to host a virtual garage sale and reach interested buyers in your broader area. Like the old saying goes, what is one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so don’t be surprised if your neighbors are all too willing to take some of your items off your hands. Since everyone on Nextdoor has a verified address, exchanges are made quick, easy, and safe. Now that sparks joy!

Borrow an item: Repainting and in need of a ladder? Neighbors can help with that! Your neighbors are an amazing resource to use when you’re in need of an item that it just doesn’t make sense to buy. A quick post on Nextdoor will likely find you any item you need, and in the exchange, you might just meet a neighbor who’s willing to lend a helping hand.

Recommendations: Every day, neighbors turn to Nextdoor to share trusted recommendations for local businesses and service providers. Rely on your neighbors to find a house cleaner for that post-decluttering deep clean, or hire a handyman to take care of some of those home maintenance projects you haven’t gotten to. Local service providers are often willing to give a discount to people within the neighborhood, and you can connect with them directly through Nextdoor.
