Things to sell when you don’t think you have anything else.
You may think you have nothing in your home to sell. Last year when I started on this journey I didn’t think I had anything to sell. I tried to sell my clothes but wasn’t overly successful. I sold some of my excess furniture but I didn’t have a lot to sell. The more I looked around the more I had to sell, the candle holder I ‘needed’ but when I got it home I no longer loved, the spare high chair that I have never used and everyone has one in my family. Everything I could find I sold. So this year when I was keen to Make Money May and sell more stuff to start the ball rolling I had run out of stuff to sell – or so I thought. Here are the things I have found to sell – when I thought I didn’t have anything else left to sell. The great thing about these items is 2 of them are also direct sales so no waiting on gumtree for a buyer!
- Electronic devices. Things like old phones, working or not sell well. Either to specific buyers who fix or strip them. Or on Ebay and the like to home repairers who think that can make money.
- Old Jewellery. You won’t get rich quick selling your old silver or gold but you will make some money and get rid of your ex from your life forever. The best part about old jewellery is that it doesn’t have to be attractive or even working. Old jewellery is bought by weight only so functionality or appearance doesn’t count. Places such as Cash converters and pawn shops are a good place to start. As are jewellery shops with jewellery made on site.
- CD’s and DVD’s. It’s easy now to no longer need a hard copy of every movie you love. And while they are small combined they take up a lot of space. Selling old CD’s and DVD’s is easy with being able to make bulk packs. You won’t make a ton of money for each title but in packs of 3-5 you will be able to make sales on Buy Swap and Sell Facebook pages, and Gumtree.
I have sold all of these things this Making Money May. When I thought that I had nothing left to sell, and its been easy. I hope that you get the same success that I have of selling these things. Do you have any other items that sell really successfully? I would love to know.
