If you want to get out of debt and don’t know what to do. Creating a budget is a good start. Set money aside to pay down your debts. If you’re finding that task to be too difficult, as money is too tight, then you need to generate more revenue. But you most likely don’t have time to take on a second job, even if you could land one in the first place. One possible solution to generating revenue is to sell your belongings.
It seems to me that those who have the least amount of money in their pocket are the ones with the most amount of stuff in their home. If that’s you, it’s time to get rid of it. Here are a few ways that you can get rid of your unwanted items and make some money too.
There’s nothing like a good old fashioned yard sale to get rid of your items. People at yard sales demand to get items really really cheap, so only put out items that you’re okay getting rid of for a few bucks. Save the good stuff because nobody will pay you anything decent for it.
The items you should sell on eBay are those that cost more than ten bucks. The reason being that the shipping fees won’t make it worth it to sell anything real cheap. While you can sell just about anything on eBay, things that sell well on eBay are laptops, cell phones and other electronic gadgets.
Sell your larger items that must be picked up in person on Craigslist. This could include televisions, couches, refrigerators and beds.
If you’ve received some presents in the past that you never used, consider regifting them to someone else. Just make sure they’re still in their original box. Also, it’s imperative that you don’t give the gift back to the person who gave it to you in the first place.
