It’s Spring, time for yard sales and Spring cleaning.  Clean out those big items you have no use for.  Use one of the many apps available to find ways to bring in a few extra dollars for your savings and clear out clutter from your home.  Not sure where to start below find a list to get you on your way to making a little extra money.

LetGo – is an online app that connects buys with sellers.  You post your items set a price, buyers contact you, accept their offer and agree to meet up.

OfferUp –  is another online app that allows you to sell items you no longer want.  A nice feature is that you can also post it on facebook.

Cplus – I had not heard about this app.  It’s a third party app for craigslist.  Who knew?

5Miles –  It also has a facebook feature which is nice.  You’re able to see who of your friends are using the app.  When it comes to receiving payment you can do it in cash or use in the app purchase.

With anything use your best judgement.  If meeting up to sell something do it in a public area, exchange cash, and be aware of your surroundings.
