One of the trappings of modern life is the amount of junk we accumulate. Think of the amount of clothes you have sitting, unworn in your wardrobe or expensive pots and pans which only get brought out of the cupboard once in a blue moon. Are these items enriching your life, are they giving you any pleasure, are they of use to you? No? Then get rid of them, declutter and sell.
Last November I purged many a thing from my life when I went on a decluttering mission and yet somehow I still have a crazy amount of stuff litering my life and bogging me down. Anything I don't use or love is going, going, gone and I'm going to sell most of it in the hope of buying something lovely for Mr Thrifty after he completes The Great North Run (can I get a whoop for Mr Thrifty?) next month.
How many mobile phones have you had in the past decade? I'm not sure I could count the amount I've gone through, I'm a serial mobile phone dropper. And even the ones which have survived falls from my jacket pocket into a pub loo have decided to die a dramatic, long drawn out death after only 6 months. Why do I still hold on to some of them? What I need to do is sell my mobile, get my declutter on, make some money back. What is the point in having those old mobile phones sitting in a drawer (or vintage tin in my case) taking up space and never, ever being used.
I've used the company who are sponsoring this post (before they approached me), Top Dollar Mobile - well Mr Thrifty has, the service was quick, efficient and they paid a fair price for his old mobile phone. The website is easy enough, you can scroll through the mobile phone brands to find your old phone - am I the only person who never knows their mobile number let alone the fancy pants name of the actual device? Then just send it off to them and they pay a short time later. Easy money in my opinion.
Do you have mobiles, junk, CDs, clothes sitting round doing absolutely nothing? Why not sell it on and recoup some cash for doing almost nothing.

P.S. Have you recently sold anything which had been utterly useless to your life?
P.P.S. As always, shop around before buying or selling anything. What I mention on this blog works for me and my family.
