Need cash? Make money off your junk by selling your unwanted items online.
This spring, don’t just clean your home. Make money off your junk by selling your unwanted stuff via online selling sites and apps.
Sell old clothing on ThredUp
As you clean out your closets, make a pile of your clothing that’s still in great condition to sell on ThredUp. The site is geared toward better secondhand clothing, and everything you try to sell will have to meet its standards. If your clothing is worth less than $60, it will pay you for it as soon as it’s processed in the site’s warehouse. If you have some designer clothing worth more than $60, you’ll be reimbursed when the item is sold through the company’s site.
Sell unwanted jewelry on Worthy.com
Worthy.com will sell your old rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings made from gold or platinum, with or without diamonds. After you’ve mailed in your jewelry, Worthy will clean and photograph the piece, and set a fair price for it. If a bid you’re happy with is reached, the site will sell the jewelry and transfer the funds to you. If the bidding stays low and/or fails to reach the price you were hoping for, you can change your mind and ask to have your item back.
Make good money off your unwanted furniture through Chairish
Your dated dinette set might be just what someone’s looking for! Chairish.com is an online public marketplace that specializes in used and vintage furniture in excellent condition. There is no price to list your items, and you’ll get to keep up to 80 percent of the selling price.
Sell or swap your gift cards on Gift Card Granny
As you work your way through the clutter in your home, you might find one or more gift cards to shops you never frequent. Sell or exchange them on Giftcardgranny.com for up to 92 percent of their value.
Sell kids and baby wear on Swap
If you can’t find a brick-and-mortar consignment shop near you, sell your outgrown baby and kids wear on Swap.com. Let the company know you’re interested in selling, and it will send you a pre-paid shipping label to stick onto a box that you fill with your unwanted stuff. According to the site, sellers earn an average of $150 per box.
Sell or trade unused sports equipment on Swap Me Sports
Sports equipment can cost a whole lot of money — especially when it’s for a game your child loses interest in after just one season. Make some of that money back by selling or trading your child’s unused sports gear at SwapMeSports.com. You’ll have to pay $5 to join the site for 30 days, but if you have decent stuff to sell, you should earn that money back several times over before the month is up.
