The holidays are a time of year were a lot of people are in need of extra cash. Buying gifts, traveling to visit family and friends–all of this adds up and can do a number on your budget. Obviously, you want to try to be as frugal as possible, but some extra expenses are hard to avoid. Usually making extra money online takes time, survey sites don’t pay out instantly if you need cash ASAP. Luckily there’s an app that pays you fast to sell your stuff.
The concept behind Decluttr is to help you literally declutter your house by selling off items like books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, games, and even tech like smartphones or tablets. Listing items on resale sites like eBay is a pain that most people don’t want to go through, so Decluttr makes it simple to sells the items you don’t want.
The way it works is you download their free smartphone app (available for iOS and Android). You don’t even have to sign up for an account, just start scanning barcodes to see what your stuff is worth. When you decide to sell, you’ll set up your account, pack up your stuff, and they provide a free UPS shipping label. Once they receive your box and verify you sent the items you claimed, you’ll receive payment the next day through check, PayPal, or direct deposit. It’s that easy.
In our apartment, we regularly downsize by going through our closets and shelves looking for items we don’t use or don’t need. That stuff usually goes to the thrift store for donation, but before we drop it off, I scan all the books, CDs, DVDs and electronics to see if we can make any money. I don’t get rich, but the extra cash for stuff I was going to get rid of anyway is a nice bonus.
I know some people use apps like Decluttr to flip books, CDs, and other items they buy at thrift stores creating a nice side hustle they can use to pay down debt or buy little luxuries they couldn’t afford otherwise. Either way, it’s an easy way to make some extra money and declutter your house.
On the other side, you can also buy items from Decluttr. So if the people you’re shopping for are thrifty like you and don’t mind getting used items you can get great deals on CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, iPhones, Tablets, and more.
