Tips to Make Money From Your Old Stuff

Share post:

If you are having a clear out consider selling your old stuff, rather than simply dumping it or giving it away. Doing so brings benefits for both you and society as a whole.

Why sell your old stuff?

With a little time and patience, you can generate a significant amount of money for you and your family. At the same time, you can help others and benefit the environment. Something which to you is just junk could be just what another family needs and the fact that they can buy it second-hand means that they can afford to buy something rather than having to go without. In addition, the more things that are recycled or reused the better it is for the environment.

Search Online places to sell used items

Go for Global Brand sites

There are several different places where you can easily sell stuff online. By far the most well-known and, therefore, the most popular places are auction sites such as Amazon,eBay and much more. There you can sell practically anything to anyone. The only thing you need to bear in mind is that it will cost you to list items regardless of whether or not you actually manage to sell them, so if you are very tight for money you may want to consider another option.

Let’s use Online Classifieds

Classified websites are also very popular. Many of the sites allow you to advertise small items, under a certain value, without paying any listing fees. However, it is important to bear in mind that there will be an awful lot of listings. Therefore, you may have to wait sometime before your item is picked out and seen by a particular person.

Find Online Communities

It is also sometimes possible to sell items via community sites. Some local councils and organisations allow people to post their items for sale on their websites. Most charge a small fee for doing so, but some are completely free. If you have large items, such as furniture, to sell you are for far more likely to find a buyer from amongst your local community. Therefore, if you are selling furniture search out and use these sites to do so.

Another option, which many people completely overlook is selling items to recycling firms. If you have jewellery items made from other precious materials it is quite easy to find somebody online to buy these items from you. However, it is also possible to sell other items to resellers or recyclers. There are companies out there who are willing to pay good money for second-hand electronics, videos, games, clothes and other items. To find them, all you need to do is to carry out a basic Google search.

Be patient

However, you decide to sell your used goods online it is important to be realistic about the process. Posting adverts or searching for a buyer is something you can do whilst watching television or listening to music. It may take some time to find a buyer and certain items simply will not sell.

However, the vast majority of your used stuff will sell very quickly online, so you will be glad that you have taken the time rather than simply putting it in the bin.
