Spring has (almost) sprung! With warmer weather fronts and the daylight sticking around longer, I feel like, at least hope so, the winter days are long gone until next year.
This time of year, I always get the itch to clean. It is amazing what can accumulate over a year! To start, I create a couple of sections to help me organize how I want to get rid of the clutter. Some items I sell or donate to Goodwill, and the rest I give to a local shelter or children’s home. This spring season, I decided to try a few new cleaning and organizational apps and give you my personal reviews on them. Check them out below and tell me what you think!
Let Go – I have seen SO many commercials for this app, so I had to try it out myself. I did sell a couple of items…but I had to meet the buyer in person which made me a little nervous. With that in mind, I picked VERY public places such as the front of Whole Foods Grocery Store. Also, I made sure I was paid in cash only. The best part about this app is that it doesn’t take any of the money from the sell!
Offer Up – I like the look of this app better than Let Go. You can sign up for a TruYou account, which makes you feel more comfortable because you know who is behind an offer. There are two ways that they verify you- your Facebook and driver’s license. Like Let Go, Offer Up requires you to meet up with the buyer in order to make a sell and you keep all the money that you make. Again, I advise that you meet the buyer in a VERY public place and take cash only.
Decluttr – This by far was the easiest app to use out of all three. Decluttr allows you to take your old DVDs, video games, and CD’s, scan the proof of purchase barcode, and it then tells you what they will pay you for them. When you confirm everything that you want to sell, they send you a packing list and postage to mail your goods. The downside is that you don’t get much money for them, but hey, are you really using them anyway?! Also, you don’t receive your money up front.
I believe that the best way to clean is by making sure that you have some good tunes blasting throughout your house. To help you out with this, I have created the perfect cleaning playlist with songs I am currently listening to and can’t get enough of. Get pumped and ready to clean with these jams on my ‘Spring Cleaning’ Spotify playlist! Any song suggestions?
Happy Spring cleaning!
