So this nifty little app is useful when you are looking for a local bargain. You can buy and sell stuff in your neighborhood or nearby.

Here’s how it works:

  • Free to sign up
  • It’s easy! If you’re buying, it’s a lot like ebay, or craigslist. You simply scroll through and see what’s for sale locally. If you’re selling, simply take a picture of what you are selling and the price then post it.
  • Other locals who have the app will get a message that you’ve posted and then they can check it out. Then you text each other within the app and set up a meeting place and time.

In essence, it’s kind of like an electronic garage sale.

I love that you can just find things locally without having to scan through lots and lots of people’s stuff.

I don’t love that a lot of what’s for sale in my local area is kind of junky. Like I said, it’s like a garage sale. And sorry to say, but people in Utah wear out their stuff then try to sell it. I mean, hey, I guess it’s good that we are using our stuff to its fullest, but come on! Don’t sell your junk man!

Deep breath…okay, I’m good now.

All in all, I’d say you ought to check out Close5. I’ve sold about $300 worth of stuff so far and have really liked using this app in conjunction with Craigslist.
