The Christmas season is in full swing. Our tree is trimmed, stockings are lining the fireplace, and little festive reminders of the season lurk throughout our home. There's still so much to do but many of the early preparations are already completed.
This year the idea of simplicity has overtaken me. I'm ready to simplify things – not only our gift giving, but also our home. The more toys your child receives, the messier their room which then bleeds out into the rest of the house and just becomes a constant nightmare. So this holiday season I want to simplify our home and declutter some of the items I've been holding onto but don't really need anymore or items that never get used and then turn around and purchase this year's Christmas gifts at a discount.
In the past I've tried to make money buying and selling online through sites like Craigslist or eBay to sell things with success but there are flaws with each site. In recent years Craigslist seems to have been overtaken with scammers and I don't like driving across the city or feel safe meeting up with people I don't know to sell things. The safety of myself and my children just doesn't make it worth it. With eBay it's such a hassle to continually make trips to the post office…especially during the holidays.
The holidays are the perfect time to take advantage of all VarageSale has to offer! You can declutter and earn some extra cash for Christmas gifts and get great prices on those items if you buy them from a fellow VarageSale member, sometimes for up to 90% off! You can feel secure shopping from your local neighbors that have ben vetted by local admins and moderators in a fun, social environment.
There's no fee to start buying and selling on VarageSale and there are even iOS and Android apps you can use from your phone! The app uses location services to search the news feed based on what's closest to you. No longer do you have to troll through hundreds of posts for items you're not interested in. VarageSale users can customize their news feed so that only categories and items you care about show up. You can learn about how it works here.
