Many of you may recall my family and I moved to a more appropriately sized home last year. “Rightsizing” I called it. Now we don’t have all of those unused rooms to heat, cool and clean. That did, however, require we do some serious decluttering. You can read more about that here.
Which leads me to the point of this post. As our move approached I became overwhelmed with figuring out how to sell all of our extra clothes and furnishing. I even donated some that was worth quite a bit because I didn’t want to deal with the usual classified sites or strangers coming to our home.
I love reading about people who come up with cool, innovative solutions to the headaches of everyday life. That’s what mom and former elementary school teacher Tami Zuckerman did. I’m excited to introduce you to her creation VarageSale.com who sponsored of this post.
Back in 2012 Tami approached her husband, a programmer, and the two collaborated together to create something more user friendly with a better experience than existing classifieds sites or social networks. Something I love about it is how much more secure and friendly this virtual garage sale is!
So, what is VarageSale?
- It’s a platform to buy and sell new and gently used items within your local community. Think of it like a fun, easy, secure virtual garage sale.
- They’re different because their service creates communities built around trust and real identities, which as you might imagine has resonated well with many users, especially moms.
- They have hundreds of local communities across 42 states, and millions of users. And right now are offering some perks (including that trip I mentioned) to new members here Dallas Fort Worth.
- And VarageSale is FREE to use, and available on iOS, Android and online at www.varagesale.com
Why VarageSale? With VarageSale, you can:
- Buy items at a fraction of the retail price (some as much as 90% off!)
- Earn extra cash by decluttering your home and selling unused items
- Shop with confidence by browsing member profiles to see real names and photos which have been vetted by local admins and moderators. I especially appreciate the comfort this gives us.
- Get to know your neighbors in a fun, social environment. If you’ve got to declutter, and who doesn’t, we might as well make it a pleasant experience.
