Best sites to cash in on spring cleaning (hint: not eBay)

Spring cleaning season is here, and many people would love to cash in on their clutter. But there’s a problem: it can take a lot of time and energy to sell on sites like eBay and Craigslist. You need to create a detailed listing and it could take a long time for your stuff to sell – if it sells at all – not to mention potential hassles with shipping, scammers and no-shows.

You can simplify the process with these sites that take the work out of selling used stuff.

Clothing and fashion accessories: ThredUP

Order a free kit from ThredUP’s Clean Out service, fill the bag with unwanted clothing and accessories, then ship it to earn cash on any items that are accepted (on average, 40% of items are accepted). You can choose upfront payment for all accepted items; or, get a little more by waiting until each item sells on consignment.

Furniture and home goods: Chairish

The onus is on you to figure out shipping when you sell furniture on eBay, and you never know who you’re inviting into your home when you sell it on Craigslist. Chairish solves both problems by making it easy to sell furniture and home goods on consignment. It’s free to list, and when your items sell Chairish arranges shipping details – and you keep at least 70% of the purchase price.

Phones, tablets, iPods, video game consoles, Mac computers & Apple Watches: Flipsy

Flipsy instantly compares cash and trade-in offers from dozens of Trust Verified Stores, so you can see who is paying the most for your devices at a glance. Choose the best offer, get a free prepaid shipping label and receive payment within 1 to 3 days. Flipsy is completely free to use and you keep 100% of the purchase price. You can see how it works here:

Textbooks: Direct Textbook

If you have old textbooks collecting dust on your shelves, you can instantly see how much they’re worth on Direct Textbook. Search by ISBN to instantly compare offers from more than two dozen textbook buyback companies. Shipping is free and you keep 100% of the payout.

Other books: Powell’s

Search for the books you have by ISBN to get an instant offer. Accept the offer, and Powell’s will pay for UPS Ground shipping. Once your books arrive, Powell’s will inspect them and send payment via PayPal.
