Want to make some easy money while decluttering
your home? Try Decluttr
Decluttr wants your old LEGOs, CDs, DVDs, and books. They make it easy to just box up and ship these items!
Selling LEGOs, which any parent probably has boxes of lurking in the closet, couldn’t be easier! Decluttr buys LEGOs by weight, not by sets, so you can sell any LEGOs you happen to have, no matter how much you have. All you have to do is pack your LEGO bricks into a plastic bag and seal it. Weigh the bag and round it to the nearest one pound. On the site, select the total weight of your LEGOs and get an instant price. Then pop the box in the mail at no charge and get paid the next day.
If you’re selling tech
the site will let you choose the make, model, and condition of your cell phone
from a menu and then offers you an instant price for it. For selling CDs or DVDs, tablets, and game consoles
, you just enter the barcode and you’ll get instant value on your items. Decluttr also has a phone app
that uses your phone’s camera to scan barcodes providing instant results that streamlines the process so it’s even faster and easier.
I learned about Decluttr several years ago at a conference when it first launched. Since then they have really improved their “customer experience” and their excellent reviews speak for themselves. I have not used the service yet for myself, but plan to ASAP. In our home, we use digital technology to listen to music and watch movies so I hope to reclaim valuable storage space by selling many of the unused DVDs, CDs, and even some old tablets and iPods. I’ll keep you posted on my success! Please let me know of any experiences you have with Decluttr.
