Keep reading for my Decluttr review!
Decluttering my house is a constant, ongoing process. There's always new mail to review, documents to file, books to put away, clothes to sort, art projects to display, art supplies to keep contained…
I know I'm not alone here. Nearly everyone has an abundance of stuff that needs to be managed at all times. If we're don't work hard every single day to keep all the things under control, they'll take over.
The worst part is that I'm really just talking about all the items we use every day. That doesn't include all the products we bought a long time ago that's now stashed somewhere it doesn't need to be seen every day.
“Out of sight, out of mind” might be a temporary fix, but even I know it's foolish to just let that stuff sit there. If it's packed away somewhere, it's as good as gone. You're also not getting the money you could earn by selling it. After all, it's not being used, anyway!
But how to get rid of all that stuff? Those books, CDs, video games, movies and more that you know still has value?
The easiest way is to drop it all off at a donation center. If you want to see a possible tax benefit then it's not as easy. You'll need to itemize those donations. And spend more time on taxes. And it might not help you.
The hardest way is selling it outright. Facebook swap groups, garage sales and Craigslist are all ways that you can list your items, price them and hope the right person sees something they want.
One of the best ways is Decluttr.
I've been hearing great things about Decluttr for a few months, and I was overdue for a decluttering session at home. I tried it and now I have a complete and honest Decluttr review so I can share the experience with all of you!
What is Decluttr?
Declutter is one of the best ways to get rid of your unwanted cell phones, games, books, video games, movies, toys, tech and more. It's completely free to use, and you can check the value of your items before any sort of commitment.
How does Decluttr work?
I think one of the best things about Decluttr is how easy it is to use. You just go to the home page and enter the details of the products you want to sell. You need barcodes for some products, and model names or model numbers for others.
You get an instant offer price for each individual item you enter for Declutter. If you want to accept it, you pack up what you're selling, print out a free prepaid shipping label, attached it to the box and get it shipped. You'll receive payment the day after your shipment is received.

How to get started with Decluttr
Getting started with Decluttr is so simple. You don't even need to register to start finding out how much Decluttr will pay you for all the things you want to sell!
Before you visit Decluttr you'll want to gather up all the things you want to sell. Your total offer must be $5 or more, which is easy to do. It just means that you need to sell a tech item or more than one or two non-tech items to make the sale worthwhile.
Once you have a collection of items to enter, go look for more! I think it's a little bit addicting to enter the barcodes and see what Decluttr will pay me for them. I was looking through bookshelves and trying to decide if we had any other movies to sell before I even finished my session on the site!
Do you have everything that you want to sell in front of you? Now you're set to use Decluttr!

Decluttr Review: What I like about Decluttr
If it's not already obvious in this Decluttr review, the thing I love most about Decluttr is that it's so easy. Way, way easier than listing and selling everything on it's own, and there's no waiting around wondering if someone will actually buy what I've listed.
The next thing I love about Decluttr is that it gives me cash for items that are taking up space in my house.
Every single thing I sent to Decluttr was something I no longer used, wanted or needed. The books, CDs and movies had been packed away for almost two years. It was time to say goodbye to them, and I'm getting some money in my pocket in return!
Another great thing about Decluttr is that shipping is free. You're not going to get rich selling most of your books, CDs and movies on Decluttr or anywhere else. Having shipping included means your expenses are $0, so your earnings are your profits.
Decluttr Review: What I don't like about it
While I think Decluttr is a great way to earn money selling your old stuff, there are some downsides.
The first is that it's not going to give you absolute top dollar for what you're selling. For me, that's ok. I'm into Decluttr first and foremost to get rid of stuff. I know I can do better selling my things on Ebay but I'm not about to list, manage and ship individual CDs, movies and more.
The other thing I don't like about Decluttr is that it's kind of hard to search for tech items when selling them. You can search with a brand, model or keyword term, but there's no way to filter or sort to help narrow down the results.
Overall Decluttr Review
Overall, I think Decluttr is an awesome way to make some cash while getting rid of things that are just taking up space. Those items aren't making money sitting in a closet. Sell them to Decluttr and put some cash in your pocket!
