We’ve already looked at ways to make the most money from your old junk after decluttering this week, but what do you do with the rest of it?
Some items won’t sell at auction or in a classified ad, for and others the fees and postage add up to make selling online non-viable. This is especially true for low value or damaged items, and also if the local or online market is flooded. Today’s activity is to find a way to sell the rest of your stuff.
Here are a few ideas you could try:
- Hold a yard sale or garage sale at your house
- Rent a spot at a car boot sale or a table top sale (expect people to want to haggle)
- Sell at an online car boot sale
- Sell in bulk to Music Magpie (they take DVDs, games, clothes etc too), CeX, Zapper, WeBuyBooks, GAME etc
- If your phone won’t sell at auction, try specialist buyers such as Mazuma Mobile or Envirofone
- Sell things for scrap or parts – try local scrap buyers, or mark classified ads or auctions clearly as ‘DAMAGED’ or ‘FOR PARTS’
- Sell old clothes, towels, bedding etc by the kilo with Genie Recycling, ReturnToEarn or ClothesForCash
It won’t make you a fortune, but if you really need the extra few quid then go for it.
