So if you’re up for selling stuff, you can do so in various ways:

  • Selling groups on Facebook
  • Thrift stores
  • Garage sale – if you have loads of stuff
  • eBay
  • Poshmark

1. Clothing

Everyone has some clothes they don’t wear, so this is basically the low-hanging fruit if you want to sell things to make money fast!

If you’re not up for putting all your things online yourself, you can go to your local thrift store. They will often buy clothes from you if they’re in good condition.

2. Jewelry

If you have jewelry that you don’t 100% love or that has lost its emotional value for you, you can consider selling it. Jewelry can be worth a lot of money!

To make sure that you’re getting what your jewelry is worth, you might consider getting items appraised beforehand.

3. Electronics

There are many electronics lying around your house that you’re able to sell! Old items or not working items can even be sold. A phone that doesn’t work anymore can give you $30-70 per item. A computer can even be worth hundreds of dollars  – be sure to clear any data from it beforehand though!

4. Video Games and Consoles

Games and consoles have a pretty short life span. Especially nowadays when there is a new console out every year or so. If you’re still owning old games and consoles, I would advise you to get rid of them sooner rather than later.

If you’re holding on to very old games and consoles, you can sell them through sites like eBay for a fairly good price!

4. VHS Tapes

Did you think VHS tapes are dead? Not yet! They are still in demand! You can check out Amazon, eBay, or Craigslist to see if the VHS tapes you have are still in demand.

Sometimes the VHS tapes are for movie titles that are not available on DVD, or they’ve become collector’s items. This means that it’s time to find your VHS tapes again and get rich!

5. Furniture

Some items in your home that are no longer serving any purpose could be furniture. You redecorated the house, moved in with your partner, or your furniture is simply taking up too much space. Selling some of that old furniture might just be what your wallet needs!

Some practical tips: post several pictures from different angles, use different keywords like brand names, and compare prices of similar items.

6. Books

Books are amazing to sell for extra money! Depending on what kind of books you’re selling, you might be able to make a few hundred bucks from this!

What I found is that especially textbooks that I used for studying are very easy to sell. Currently, I’m trying to sell my old textbooks from 3 years ago. I noticed that this is a little harder, as they are often becoming outdated. Make sure to sell your textbooks asap after finishing your semester!

7. Movies

Movies are another great thing! You probably stacked up on movies during the DVD/Blue Ray era, and now you’ve moved on to Netflix and don’t watch the movies anymore. Good thing that others still do, because you can sell your stuff to them!

Recently I’ve sold a whole lot of movies that I never watched or didn’t like too much. It’s a great way to make other people happy with something that you’re not using anymore.

8. Gift Cards

Yes, my favorite, gift cards! Many people have gift cards in their wallets that they’re not using. Rather than letting it expire, you can sell it online!

If you don’t want to sell them yourself, you can sell them on CardCash, Cardpool, or Raise. For example, on Cardpool, you get up to 92% of the value of your initial cards.

9. Sporting Gear

If you have outdoor sporting goods, they tend to sell well. Maybe you bought a golf set that you never used, you rather sell the item than have it collect dust in your garage.

Used sports equipment you can easily list on Amazon.com!

10. Children’s Toys

When I was young, I outgrew my toys very quickly. Some things I got for my birthday and I even never played with, so that’s a bummer!

If you have toys that your kids don’t use anymore, you can sell them. Especially larger playsets could turn into a lot of cash!

11. Artwork

With artwork, I don’t mean the original Van Gogh that you inherited and can sell for millions. It could be something that is collecting dust in your attic or something that you simply don’t like anymore. Sell them for some fast money!

If you do happen to have a collection of fine arts, consider having them appraised before selling. You might want to know if you’re having that original Van Gogh after all!

12. Appliance parts

If you’re having small appliances that are old or broken, don’t throw them away yet! They can still have value. Some parts you can sell on eBay.
