Earn money from your clutter with!

Are you trying to simplify and declutter your home, and wish you could earn some cash in the process? is a service that will pay you cash for old CDs, DVDs, video games, tech, books, cell phones, and more!

Decluttr is easy to use, completely free of charge, and even includes free shipping on your items. They have a broad range of eligible products you can sell on their site. They are also super competitive in pricing on some items, such as used iPhones.

Here’s how Decluttr works:

1. Go to and choose to sell either CDs, DVDs, Games, & Books or Tech items.

2. If you choose CDs, DVDs, Games, or Books, enter the bar code number of the item. Be sure to enter enter ALL THE DIGITS for the barcode, without spaces or dashes. If you choose a tech item, search for what item it is and the condition your item is in. This literally takes seconds to do and then you’ll instantly receive a quote for how much they’ll pay you for the item. You can also scan the barcode by using the Decluttr app for iPhone or Android.

3. You can add as many items as you’d like to your cart to sell back to them. (This could serve as great motivation for you to do some extra decluttering!)

4. Once you’ve added all of the items you’d like to sell, you just accept their Terms & Conditions and go to checkout. (I read through the Terms & Conditions and did not see anything in them that looked bothersome or concerning.)

5. Go to checkout and set up an account. (Note: I had trouble getting my password to work. I finally realized that you cannot use any characters in your password, only letters and numbers.)

6. Choose to be paid via Direct Deposit, PayPal, check, or to donate your profits. 

7. Choose to have a FREE shipping label emailed to you or mailed to you — whichever you prefer. Affix the label to the box of items you’re selling to Decluttr, drop it off at any UPS store, and ship your items for free.

8. Once Decluttr receives your items and confirms that they are as you promised, they’ll pay you. You’ll receive payment within a day if you choose to be paid via Direct Deposit or PayPal. Checks get posted the same day.


Decluttr is quick and easy to use and I love that they offer instant pricing on your items. Unlike other sites, there aren’t any listing, auction, or PayPal fees.

In addition, because they pay you cash back on a wide variety of items, it makes decluttering and making money easier! You can sell and ship a number of items all at once by throwing them into one box and sending the box for free. Decluttr pays shipping on every single order!

And the best part? They offer fast next-day payments! You get paid via bank transfer the day after Decluttr receives your items. It’s a super quick way to earn cash for your unwanted items.

    Do you have a referral code so you can get credit?

    I was curious to see how much they are paying for books, so I grabbed a stack of children’s historical fiction and biography from my homeschool table. Out of 7 or 8 books, only one was being accepted, and that was for 55 cents. I’m guessing I’d do better selling through a Facebook group. You have to have an ISBN number, so older books without one wouldn’t be eligible either.

      I found that, too, but I think it’s totally worth it if you have a large number of items you’d like to get rid of at once. I think the big perk to this service is not paying for shipping and the convenience of it. I tried to sell some of my books on, and I couldn’t even get $1 for each. And you have to deal with paying shipping costs, so Decluttr worked great for me! I was able to make $25 on a stack of books I had that I didn’t need/want anymore. 🙂 I did notice there were some of the older books that weren’t in the database, but most of mine were accepted. -Meg, MSM Team

    I have used them twice and I had great experiences with them. If you have a lot of items and want to make some easy money fast, it is worth it. If you have time to individually sell things (like on eBay) you could probably get more $$ but it would take you 10 times as long. I did it with a lot of our DVDs, but chose to use eBay for some video games.

  • Trixie says:

    This sounds like a great idea! I did some searching online and discovered Declutter has numerous bad reviews regarding customers’ experiences. I would love to hear what this service is like from any readers that have used it. Thank you.

    I have a referral code if anyone wants to use for a bonus of $10 on the sale of your items!
