What to Sell

Get paid to PURGE!

“I was referred to WeeUsables by a friend after complaining about all of the bins and bins of baby clothing that I had in my basement. At my first sale I brought 200 pieces of clothing and only brought home 6! Needless to say I was extremely happy with the outcome and made more money than I had imagined I would!”

—Whitney, WeeUsables consignor
