Seasons like spring and fall often come with a little bit of downsizing. These are great times for getting rid of things you do not need anymore to make room for the new. But sometimes you don’t feel like doing a garage sale. Maybe you don’t have the time or it’s just not your scene.
Well, here are a few apps that can help you rid yourself of the unnecessary stuff without going anywhere.
Decluttr is where you can sell used CDs, DVDs, games and other tech-related products online. And we all know these are things that take up space.
Using Decluttr is pretty straightforward. When you enter your item (through the app or website), you are offered an instant valuation. If you move forward, they send you a free shipping label. Then all you have to do is pack it up, put on the label and drop it at UPS.
The coolest part is that you can receive payment through direct deposit, PayPal, check OR as a donation to your favorite charity.
Letgo is specifically for selling stuff in your neighborhood, making it a worthwhile alternative to Craigslist. This means anything – clothes, furniture, cleaning supplies, cars, etc.
This app is easy to use and has in-app tips that can help you through the process.
This app is specifically for selling used clothes from over 35,000 brands. The site lists specific items they’re looking for and you can choose which ones are most worth sending in. They have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau so you can feel assured you’re in good hands.
How it works: You order a free closet cleanout kit and once your bag comes, you add your used clothing, send it off and wait. When the order is processed, you receive your payment.
Recycler is a marketplace that connects local buyers and sellers. The main categories include vehicles, pets and housing. But there are also options for furniture, clothes and other items.
This is a great way to sell as well as buy when you’re looking to reduce waste.

Listing with Charish is free, but there is a 20% commission charge for the items you sell. Whenever your item sells, the buyer has 48 hours to return it through the app, but afer that 48-hour window, your payment is processed.
