Make Money From Spring Cleaning Your Lexington Home!

Lexington MA Spring Cleaning Tips
As a Lexington real estate agent, and homeowner, I know how daunting the task of spring cleaning can seem. But what if this year, you go into the task with the plan to come out of it with some extra cash? It’s very possible, thanks to so many websites and companies that will pay you for your old goods. Use that as incentive to clean and declutter your Lexington, MA home once and for all.

House Beautiful shared an extensive list of ways to make some money from your spring cleaning castaways. Here are a few of my favorites:
  • For clothing, you’ve got lots of options – thrift stores, eBay, garage sale, etc. But Thred Up is a resell website that will even send you a free clean out kit! Pack your name-brand clothing in it and send it back. They’ll pay you immediately for items listed under $60, and as soon as they sell for items over $60.
  • For gift cards, did you know there is a company that will buy your unused gift cards from you? Brilliant! Collect all of your gift cards with balances left, which you probably will never use, and send to Gift Card Granny. They’ll pay you up to 92 percent of the value in cash.
  • For sports equipment, sell to Swap Me Sports. You can join for 30 days for just $5 and trade, sell or donate used sports gear. If your kids have grown out of their gear, but are still playing, this might be a great option for trading in equipment for more suitable options!
  • Kid toys and clothing get grown out of faster than anything! Earn cash or store credit by bringing your kids’ items into a Kid to Kid consignment shop, or send them through the mail to They’ll even provide you with a pre-paid shipping label.
  • Books are heavy, take up space, and are a pain to move with. Collect your old books and textbooks, and even electronics, music and movies, and sell on Amazon’s Trade-In program. They’ll give you Amazon gift cards for your items. Other options include eBay’s or for kids’ books.
For more options for antiques, vintage furniture, jewelry, designer handbags, cellphones, laptops and even old magazines, check out the House Beautiful article. It’s amazing how many options you have for making extra money through spring cleaning efforts!
