Cash for clutter!

Spring cleaning? It’s the perfect time to cash in on your clutter! Download these apps to your smartphone to get the most for your cast-offs:



If old-school discs, game consoles, tablets and other obsolete tech junk are taking up precious closet space, let Decluttr take it all off your hands in one fell swoop! They’ll even send you preprinted shipping labels, so you won’t have to spend on shipping. ■ How it works: Download the free Decluttr app, then use your phone to either scan the bar codes on your CDS and DVDS or enter your tech device’s info, and you’ll get instant offers! Prices range from about 50 cents to $7 for DVDS, while old iphones can fetch $75! ● Cash in: You’ll get paid cash via direct deposit, with payment generally hitting your bank account the day after your transactio­n.


Bookcases bursting with dusty titles you’ll never read again? No need to waste time finding the best price from online used-book vendors: The app Bookscoute­r will do all the “clickwork” for you. Note: Don’t forget your kid’s old college textbooks—they’re among the most valuable titles out there! ■ How it works: Download the Bookscoute­r app, then enter a book’s ISBN number (usually found on the title page and on the back of the book near the barcode), and the site will search about 40 different sites to find the best offer. Then simply click on the best offer to complete the deal! ● Cash in: Most companies provide free shipping, and you’ll be paid via Paypal or check.


Sure, you could lug old clothes to a consignmen­t shop—or you could sell it with Poshmark, an app that lets you post clothing, shoes, bags and accessorie­s. ■ How it works: Download the free Poshmark app, then snap a picture of an item you’d like to sell, write a descriptio­n, and set a price. To amp up interest among potential buyers, list your original purchase price so they know what a deal they’re getting. Make sure photos are clear, taken in daylight against a plain backdrop and show any wear or damage. ● Cash in: Poshmark does take a small commission, and they’ll send you USPS prepaid preaddress­ed shipping labels so it’s easy to complete your sale. You’ll be paid via direct deposit or check within three days of the buyer receiving the item.
