Do you have junk sitting in your garage? Are you holding onto it because you feel like it’s valuable? It’s well known that people buy things out of impulse, and some of it never gets used. In fact, the average person spends $1,475 a year on nonessential items. That's $1,475 worth of unused products, just sitting in your closets and cluttering up your living space.
You may have the feeling that your unused junk has some worth. Now what should you do with your junk?
When you go around a neighborhood, you often see people sitting on their lawn with their belongings up for sale. The abundant presence of yard sales, tag sales or garage sales often makes you think that they work quite well, and that they’re a good way to sell your stuff. Actually that assumption is incorrect and on the internet you can now easily sell your stuff using Craigslist, Offerup, Facebook Marketplace and other sites.
Selling on these sites is very easy. Usually all it involves is making a quick account, posting pictures and writing a quick description. If you have any collectables, that’s great too, because people often scour these sites looking for rare products that aren’t being sold at retailers anymore. Also these sites make it easy to connect with people and set up a time to meet and exchange funds for goods that’s convenient for both of you. Still, you may experience some uncomfortable negotiations and meet ups in the process of selling your things, so be cautious about personal security and try to arrange safe, public exchange spots.
Some people still won’t succeed in selling the $1,475 worth of items sitting in their storage, despite their attempts to have garage sales and sell online.
If you’re one of those people then you will probably like the mobile app PICKL, which you can find on the App Store and Google Play Store. PICKL is an easy to use app that pays people $5 to take pictures of products while grocery shopping. Each task only takes 5 minutes to complete and since you can complete tasks while shopping, even the busiest of people can now have a side hustle to make some extra cash! Plus, you don't have to buy anything (unless you feel that impulse) or negotiate with anyone. So download PICKL and check it out!
