Part of my plans last Lent was to finish de-cluttering our apartment, which I had started to do last Christmas. Well, surprise, surprise! Lent is already over, it’s already the third week of Easter, I’m ready to “pop” anytime soon, and we STILL haven’t finished de-cluttering our home!
In fairness to me, I had planned to finish the de-cluttering before Anne was due to come out, but as you all know (or not), a lot of unexpected things happened, like my father-in-law passing away and me being put on bed rest for longer than expected.
To be perfectly honest, when people started asking if they could come visit me at home since I wasn’t allowed to leave the house, I would tell them thank you for their thoughtfulness, but there was really no need to come over — mainly because the apartment is still nowhere near the organized, “spic and span” place I want it to be. Now that Anne is coming soon, it will most likely remain in a state of “organized chaos” for quite some time! (So if you guys plan to visit, and in my insanity, I say “yes,” please do bear with us! Ha, ha!)
Which brings me to the topic of this post: How does one de-clutter AND make money at the same time?
Well, for starters, you could go the traditional route and have a garage sale once you’re done de-cluttering and sorting things out. That’s sure to bring in a few bucks.
If you’re an audiophile, or movie freak or game addict (or ALL three combined) but find that you have just too many CDs, DVDs and games lying around, you may want to try selling them online for cash. If you’re in the Philippines, you could do this using platforms like Sulit. If you’re based in the U.S., U.K. or Germany though, there’s an even EASIER way to do so: by using Music Magpie!
With Music Magpie, selling your old CDs, DVDs and games, and even Blu-rays is a super easy and simple thing to do! All you need to do is enter the barcodes from each of the items that you want to sell into their Valuation Engine, then you get an instant price.
Once you’re done, just click “Complete Trade.” Then place your items in a box and print and place a FREE shipping label on the box. After that, you can opt to ship your items to Music Magpie using UPS or USPS — for FREE! Gosh, I wish we had something like Music Magpie here in the Philippines! My dad has LOADS of old CDs and DVDs — he could probably make a considerable amount of money from them if he wanted to! 😉
If you want to learn more about how to de-clutter and “convert” your old CDs, DVDs and games into cash, head on over to Music Magpie’s website. For now though, as previously mentioned, their services are only available to those based in the U.S., U.K. and Germany. (Hmmm… maybe I should set up something like it here in the Philippines?! Or get them to open a Southeast Asian branch! Ha, ha!)
