Everyone likes to use spring as an excuse to clean and get rid of all the extra “stuff” that was picked up over the last year. I fully agree with this idea and the way I see it, you might as well make a couple of bucks while gaining some extra space in the home.
Everyone knows about Craigslist, eBay and Amazon, and these are great options, but here are a couple of other apps that are great for listing your products to your local community. Check ‘em out!
Wallapop – Buy & Sell pretty much anything in your home. Wallapop connects your with local buyers and sellers. You can list just about anything in your home, clothes, video games, furniture. Buy these items at a great price, save money and make money!
Varage Sale – This app creates more of a secure community. You need to be approved to enter the Varage Sale community, which provides you with a bit more security and eliminates the potential “threatening environment” some feel with Craigslist. You are able to set meetings and times right thru the app. In addition to all of this, the listings are shared with your local groups and everything is available, you can find some great deals here, and get money for what you consider “junk.”
OfferUp – I think OfferUp provides you with the fastest way to list items. This is another community based sales site which lets you communicate directly with other member to sell or buy items. Again, this is another great way to make some spare money by doing that spring cleaning.
Decluttr – with a name that is straight to the point, Decluttr does exactly what it’s name is. I am sure you, like me, have a box of CDs, DVDs or old video games under your bed, in the closet or somewhere just taking up space. Decluttr lets you scan the barcode of your old music or games and gives you a price right at that moment. You can make a couple of bucks on items you haven’t used in YEARS! The best thing about Decluttr is that you box it up, and they pay for and provide you with the shipping. After you mail it out, you get a check from them a couple days after delivery is confirmed. Not an immediate payment, but this is a great way to get rid of items in bulk, clear space and make some money.
All of these apps are great ways to incentivize you to do some cleaning, in addition to that, most of these sites also give you a chance to find some really cool things to buy, so keep your goal of cleaning in mind and don’t buy too much from other sellers!
