WHO:

Kijiji.com, eBay’s free, safe, family-friendly, local classifieds site, and decluttering expert Lisa Zaslow, founder of Gotham Organizers

WHAT:

Kijiji helps Americans cure themselves of “packratitis” with National Declutter Day on Nov. 15. Coined by Kijiji.com, “packratitis” is a condition that causes people to hold onto unused items when they are no longer useful, resulting in unnecessary clutter. In an effort to help people kick start their organization this holiday season, Kijiji and Lisa Zaslow will be providing “must-have” tips to help Americans declutter and sell their unwanted items to make some extra cash.

WHERE:

In your home and on Kijiji.com

WHEN:

Nov. 15, 2009

WHY:

National Declutter Day comes just in time for the holidays, when many people are thinking of ways to make some extra money to help pay for gifts, not to mention some extra room in their homes for holiday entertaining! Is your “baby” heading to college this year, yet you still have his/her crib? Did you vow to exercise more and your bike ended up being a place to hang clothes? By turning your unused household goods into cash, you will be amazed at how much space and extra money for the holidays you can make just in time for holiday shopping and entertaining. In fact, Kijiji survey found that the average American household has 35 unused items, with a resale value of $670!

Kijiji.com makes a list and checks it twice; making sure that all year round is always nice. Your local safe and family-friendly site makes it easier than ever to sell unused items on a site free of personal ads and adult services, using filters to weed out inappropriate listings. Additionally, Kijiji’s dedicated customer service team works round the clock to ensure that users have the best buying and selling experience possible.
