Moveloot Makes Moving Sales a Thing of the Past

Moveloot Makes Moving Sales a Thing of the Past

The Moveloot team helps people sell their furniture when they’re moving.

After several moves across the country, the founders of Moveloot — Bill Bobbitt, Jenny Morrill, Ryan Smith and Shurti Shah — decided there was a better way to deal with your old couch than sending it into a landfill. These four friends created a one-stop-shop for getting rid of your belongings quickly when you’re moving. Krrb is excited to be partnering with them to keep used furniture out of dumps.

Based in San Francisco, Moveloot will pick up your furniture, store it in their warehouse, sell it for you and share half of the profits. Although their stress-free moving system is only available in the Bay Area, they do have plans to move into more cities in 2014.

And if you’ve recently moved and need to furnish your new digs, Moveloot has plenty of secondhand furniture to fill your home. They also provide free delivery over purchases over $500 and for items below $500, a $10-$50 delivery fee, depending on the size or number of items. All items can be purchased through Moveloot and can be returned for a full refund within 48 hours of delivery/pickup, excluding delivery costs.

Shoppers can also use Moveloot’s Wish List feature to get leads on items they want to purchase.

Be sure to check out Moveloot’s corner with Krrb members get 10 percent off their first purchase.

I Want This — Danish Modern Table Legs

These graceful desk legs appeal to my DIY sensibility. Building a desk or dining table from these beauties would be a win/win. Undoubtedly I would end up with a new, stunning piece of furniture and I would feel like I’ve really done something (rather than just buying something). Of course, finding just the right top and figuring out the stabilizing structure will be no easy task. But there’s still nothing quite as rewarding as rolling up your sleeves and working with your own two hands. Catherine Rampell and her outsourcing theories be damned!

Find them on Cushion Chicago’s Krrb corner. $80.

 Life Tricks — Simple Hacks for Easy Living

Kristen’s grandfather Ron Laufer also known as the Duct Tape Guru.

My grandfather, the self-proclaimed ‘duct tape guru’ is finally receiving respect in this new economy that is forcing many of us to dedicate our efforts to fixing instead of tossing. Instead of buying, repair what we can. I remember when my family tried to convince my grandfather to throw out his old lawnmower. He proved us all wrong by fixing it with duct tape. We made fun of him then, but what we didn’t know was that he was on to something. The recession has hit many hard, but when we come out on the other side, we will all be better crafters, makers, fixers and ‘duct-tapers.’ Life hacking is an ode to those simpler times living life more resourcefully. Here are some of the best life hacks out there on the web today. Don’t forget to share some of your favorite life hacks
