Where to sell things online
Top sites for selling your clutter for cash.
What’s better than the feeling of a home freshly cleared of clutter? The satisfaction of depositing cash into your savings account when you sell that clutter! To help you find buyers for things you no longer want, here are places to sell them online.
Facebook Marketplace, Nextdoor, OfferUp (formerly Letgo) and Craigslist are popular places to sell items to people nearby. Local marketplaces are good for selling anything and especially bulky items that would be difficult to ship—like furniture, vehicles, appliances, play equipment and more.
Clothes, designer apparel and accessories
Online consignment and thrift store ThredUp recirculates everything from maternity wear and kids clothes to women’s handbags and accessories.
Poshmark features stylish second-hand apparel for men, women and kids, as well as items for pets and home. Shipping is easy with pre-paid, pre-addressed labels that allow you to drop the package off at a post office or have it picked up free.
If your clutter includes high-end goods with labels like Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton, TheRealReal is the market for you.
Clear your bookshelves! BookScouter helps sell textbooks and used books by comparing offers from over 30 book buyback vendors.
Phones, tech and more
Unused tablets, phones and video games can be turned into cash on Decluttr. They also buy CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, LEGOs and books.
Home décor and more
Everything But the House (EBTH) touts itself as the source of uncommon things, including the rare, historical, weird and wonderful.
Unused gift cards
There’s a market for everything, including unused gift cards. CardCash turns cards into discounts at popular retailers and restaurants. At Raise you can sell unwanted cards, even if they’re partially used.
When posting items for sale on services like Facebook Marketplace, good pictures are a must. Clear, detailed pictures help attract buyers. Provide multiple shots to show the item’s condition. Also, write a description that provides as much information as possible. Include things like year, size, measurements, material type, model number and brand. Disclose flaws and let buyers know that the price reflects them.
