Do you have any of these items lying around? These days there are so many options to sell your goods without putting them up on eBay. Here are five widespread household items you can sell.
In the past, we just shoved old cellphones, computers, gaming consoles, and tablets into a closet until we tossed them. Now, you can sell them online. Even old video games are worth something these days.
Yes, libraries and charities may welcome your donation of used books. But if you have textbooks, first editions, or volumes from famous authors, you may be able to sell them online or to a local used bookstore.
For example, the Amazon Trade-In program accepts books. The brick-and-mortar chain Half Price Books also buys books. Tip: The website BookScouter can help you find out which buyer will give you the best price for a given book that you want to sell.
- Gift Cards
We’ve all received gift cards to stores or restaurants we don’t plan to patronize. Sure, you can give them away, but why not sell them for cash?
You can do just that through gift card exchanges such as Raise or Card Cash. They are online marketplaces through which you can sell your unwanted gift cards to people willing to buy them at a discount. For example, you won’t get the full value, perhaps $90 or $95 for a gift card worth $100. But you will get the payment in cash. Worth a try!
- Designer Handbags and Clothes
Rather than sit unused on a closet shelf, you can sell them on the Bag Borrow or Steal website. The site verifies that accessories are authentic designer items, not knock-offs. Other consignment sites for luxury goods include The RealReal and Style Alert by Material World. Some generalized online consignment websites for clothing and accessories such as Swap.com and thredUP also sell designer labels and other brand names.
This one we found interesting, how often do you see someone using a stand-alone calculator in these days of smartphones equipped with those devices and more?
