Lots of folks are considering selling the sticks and bricks house and becoming a fulltime RVer. Others want to downsize and declutter. Still others need to do some spring cleaning of all the stuff they've been carrying around on their RV trips.
If any if those scenarios apply to you, I've got some apps that may help.
But before you donate your unwanted items to charity, or take ithem to the curb, I suggest selling stuff you want to get rid of with an app that ets you pick up some extra cash.
Here are my three favorite apps:
The Carousell app lists everything from fashion, clothes, and accessories to furniture, art, books, cars, bikes, and more. It only takes about 30 seconds to list an item. There’s even a feature to set up “groups” that can be specific to neighborhoods, schools, and so on. Best of all, Carousell has no listing fees, commissions or extra charges, making it free to buy and sell. The app is free for iOS and Android.
Boxes puts a unique spin on buying and selling. Users create a personal inventory of stuff like shoes, comic books, trading cards, books, and so on. Then, the items can be listed for sale. Boxes also has handy social features, which target those with specific interests. The app is free for iOS, but requires an annual fee of $9.99 for premium features to unlock.
The app called Shpock – a play on the phrase “shop in your pocket” – is another option to help with spring cleaning. Shpock connects buyers and sellers who are in close proximity to each other, eliminating the need to deal with shipping. Take a picture, give it a title and short description, and price. Listing are displayed in on a Pinterest-like dashboard, making it easy to browse. The app is free for iOS and Android.
Here's an NBC-TV News video I did on these apps for my weekly PC Mike Tech Report.
