Three Simple Ways to Get More Cash for Your Clutter

We are all culprits, we have homes full of things which we haven’t used for years and with no expectation that they will be of value to us in the future. That’s clutter, stuff that appears from just anywhere, filling up your home with unnecessary items. It doesn’t have to be this way; you could clear your house out and in the process get some cash out of it. Here are three places where you can get more cash for your clutter.

Facebook ‘yardsale’

You may have heard of yard sales on the internet, but have you even heard about Facebook decluttering pages in your area? This is one place where you can put some of the things you don’t need up for sale. The best thing about Facebook is that you’ll have a chance to scan the profiles of those who are interested in your stuff.

That means you won’t be putting yourself at risk and inviting strangers to your place. Facebook is also convenient; you don’t need to invest anything but time. The stuff will sell rather quickly due to the huge amount of people that are active on Facebook. With this you’ll be getting rid of what you don’t need in the house and at the same time making some money out of it.

Sell old and unused items

There are usually two reasons to sell your old items; when you want to upgrade and buy a better one, or you have hardly used it. Chances are high that you’ll never use your old kitchen appliances or electronic devices again, this means that you are only filling your house with things that you don’t need. You could discard your old items and make new space useful again!  Trade Me has made it easy, simply post an ad on the website and your items will sell to the highest bidder. You could make an extra few hundred dollars by listing your old or unused kitchen appliances, furniture, electronic devices or other gadgets.

Sell unused gift cards

Do you have some old gift cards lying around somewhere in your house? There’s a handy little site called Regifter where you could sell them on for cash.

You don’t have to fill up your house with things that you haven’t used for years and even in the future the chances of using them are slim. De-clutter your house and earn some money from it!
