Valentine’s Day is over but the Chinese community celebrates Chap Goh Mei (Chinese Valentine’s Day) today. In conjunction with the month of love, Carousell Malaysia launched a campaign, #MakeSpaceForLove, to encourage Malaysians to let go and sell their ex’s items of its marketplace.

“Decluttering your ex’s items is one of the most effective ways to move on from a failed relationship and find something better for yourself. We expect that more Malaysians will follow suit to make space for new love,” said Tang Siew Wai, Country Head of Carousell Malaysia.

Last year, 5,733 Malaysians transacted on the classifieds marketplace during Valentine’s Day and that number has increased by 15% to 6,596 transactions this year. It’s clear that that Malaysians are utilising Carousell in more and more unique ways.

The campaign that took place on its marketplace also initiated a contest where users are required to illustrate the reason behind the selling of their ex’s items. Winner of the contest, @bubblejasmine said, “I am selling my book, ‘The Infinite Moment of Us”, because it has taught me unconditional love. Not all loves are meant to lasts (sic) forever but it is more important to understand the meaning of true love.”

It is not over until you declutter your exes’ items. For more information, follow Carousell on or download the Carousell app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
