Keep track of your valuables and spending on Snupps


Most of us own lots of stuff. A lot of it we don’t even use. In fact, did you know that on average, Americans spend over 15% of their annual income on unnecessary items?

That’s a lot! That’s a nice bonus. A vacation. A few months rent.

And now-a-days US household durable goods are valued at over $5.2 Trillion. Though with items appreciating and depreciating all the time, you can imagine how difficult it must be to put a value on your stuff.

Like that old iPhone of yours. Most gadgets depreciate in value though at a certain point in time, some become collectors items and start to appreciate.

So, do you know how much you’re spending on stuff and how much it’s all worth?

Well, now you can!

Just use the ‘Shelf value’ feature, which clearly displays the ‘Paid’ and ‘Estimated’ values of your items on each shelf.

These details will always stay private, even on a pubic shelf.

To get your shelf value, simply follow the steps below:

1) When adding or editing an item, enter the item’s purchase and estimated values.

2) If this is the first time you’re doing this, a pop-up will appear asking you to select your currency. As of now, you cannot change this once selected.

3) Tap ‘Save’ at the top right corner of item view. Now in shelf view, you will see a button at the top right corner called, ‘Shelf value.’

4) Tap the ‘Shelf value’ button to get a break down of the total paid and estimated value of all the items on that shelf. On each item you will now be able to see the paid and estimated price too.

But why take my word for how great Snupps’ shelf value feature is. Here’s how a few people are finding it helpful…

Maggie uses shelf value to keep track of the value of her designer goods that she later sells. JT keeps an eye on the appreciation and depreciation of his Apple gadgets. Sari is tracking the investment value of his wines.

Which items will you use Snupps’ shelf value feature for?
