Spring Cleaning: Out With The Old

It’s about that time of year again, the sun is shining, birds are chirping and spring is just around the corner. Now is the perfect time to clear out all of the extra things you’ve accumulated throughout the year. The stuff you thought you’d use but never really did. You know what I’m talking about — that bluetooth speaker you got for Christmas but never opened, the vase you picked up at a garage sale even though you never buy flowers, the clothes in the back of your closet that you’re keeping just in case an occasion arises where you’ll need a velvet blouse or pleather pants.

Luckily, we live in a fully functional digital age, which means cleaning out your unwanted items doesn’t require an all-day garage sale. Apps and websites like Craigslist, Let Go and Facebook Marketplace are great options that will allow you to post the items you have available to sell. Just take a photo of what you’re selling, set your price, add any pick up or delivery instructions and let the requests roll in. Spring cleaning has never been easier!

Staying in contact with buyers has also never been more simple. With the free TextNow app you’ll get a free phone number that you can use to communicate with any buyers until the sale is complete. If you already have a phone number, a secondary number from TextNow will allow you to keep your existing number private from strangers and you’ll be able to log out of your TextNow account or set the notifications to silent if you don’t want to receive calls or texts all the time.

There truly is an app for just about everything these days so take advantage of your options to make this year’s spring cleaning a breeze.
