There are certain things that are truly American. What comes to mind when you hear that: apple pie, American-made muscle cars, hot dogs at a baseball game or backyard barbecues?
All of those probably make you think back to fond memories of growing up. Yet, there are a few American past times that conjure up not-such-great memories.
Did your family have yard sales, for instance? You'd spend a weekend crawling around your attic, basement or garage, looking for old clothes, shoes, record players and other items that neighbors would hopefully take off your hands for a few dollars.
These days, it's a lot easier and more fun to make money. Instead of lugging out heavy boxes to your front yard, you can sell your unused items online with our sponsor, Decluttr.com.
Decluttr is easier than other sites
Decluttr takes the hassle out of selling online. Somehow, selling items on other sites has become a chore, not quite as bad as hauling old items outside for a yard sale, but still a hassle.
But it's easy and fun with Declutter. You simply scan the bar code on the item you want to sell.
You might have old CDs that you haven't listened to in decades or DVDs that you haven't watched since the day you bought them. You don't need to take photos of each one and write a description, like you would have to on other sites.
Instead, Decluttr will tell you the price they'll pay you when you scan the barcode. You'll be surprised by how quickly you can rack up $50, $100, $250 or more for your old media and electronics.
It's easy, too. Scan the bar code, accept the price that Decluttr is paying and then ship your items to Decluttr in any box for FREE.
When Decluttr receives your items, they'll pay you in about a day.
You can start right now, either on the Decluttr website or the FREE app for your iPhone or Android smartphone.
Now, doesn't that sound a lot less stressful than a yard sale? You don't have to worry about the weather ruining your cash flow or competing with yard sales down the block.
Make money on your old media
So, what can you sell on Decluttr? One way to think about this is, if you watched it, listened to it or read it, you can most likely sell it on Decluttr.
You can sell CDs, DVDs, video games, books, smartphones and Lego blocks. Just think about how much money you can make on your old media.
Did you collect music and movies? These days, you're listening to your favorite songs on smart speakers and your smartphone. You're streaming movies and TV shows, and you're using your finger to swipe to the next page in the book you're reading.
Yet, many people still place value in your old media. There are collectors who want your old music, movies, books and games.
Make extra cash by selling tech
If you're like most people, you've got a pretty fancy smartphone in your pocket. It's most likely an Apple iPhone or one of the makers of Google's Android smartphones.
And, you're probably upgrading every year or two. So, your family and you amass a whole lot of perfectly good, working cellphones and smartphones that you don't use.
Good news. You can make cash in just a about a day with our sponsor, Decluttr.com.
