The November 2020 issue of the Kiplinger Retirement Report had an article on retiring and getting rid of all of that extra junk that you have lying around—while making a profit! For instance, called Decluttr (available on both the Apple iPhone and Google Android) where all you have to do when selling electronics (as well as accessories like video games, DVDs and CDs) is input the make and model. They will email you a price quote that is good for four weeks and a shipping label for mailing the item. No need to send in photos or any information, just wipe all personal data clean and send the equipment in. Another interesting app is The RealReal which will buy designer clothes. You just bag them up and mail them in and they apparently give a decent price for used clothes. If you have things to give away, I recommend the Church Mouse, which is owned by the First United Methodist Church in PG. They have always been kind to us and god bless them!
Tomorrow is the last day to have your donation to the Alzheimer’s Association quadrupled! A generous donor has agreed to quadruple donations of up to $150,000 through year-end. Regular readers of my blog know that both my father and my grandmother had this terrible disease when they died. Please take advantage of this generous offer and speak to the kind people at the Monterey Office of Alzheimer’s Association if you have any questions at (831) 647-9890.
