In such a harsh economic climate many of us are rather desperate for a quick bit of cash. Rather than pawning our most precious and treasured family possessions, you might be better off selling a few household items instead.
See below for a few suggestions of items you might have lying around the house that you could sell:-
Now for those who may have the following lying about…
How many of us have had that sudden urge to get slim, muscular or even just healthy and splashed a load of money on an exercise equipment or some weights? The problem is, saying you’ll exercise and actually doing it are two completely different things, even if you’ve gone through all the effort of buying these expensive machines in the first place.
Fortunately, you can sell such items on Amazon or Ebay, or even to a friend or neighbour! Used treadmills are sold for over £100 on Amazon and Ebay so you should take the opportunity to make yourself a bit of money and wallow in your laziness.
Old Video Games
If you’re an adult below the age of forty, the chances are you spent a considerable portion of your youth playing video games. Many of us would therefore pay a whole load of money to get these back into our possession. Your old Playstation might be in fact a lot more valuable than you’d assume. Furthermore, if you’re child has any old video game consoles these can also be sold of course. They don’t even have to be that old as many people sell Nintendo 3Ds online for a fair amount of money.
Old Computer Parts
When your computer dies, rather than simply throwing it out of the window, you can break it apart and sell the parts online. Even if the computer is absolutely dead, a few of the parts may still be worth a good bit of money, so take the opportunity to sell them. As well as the external pieces such as the keyboard and mouse, you can also sell some of the internal pieces of hardware.
See how much different parts are being sold at on Amazon and Ebay and use them as a platform to get yours sold. Alternatively, you could visit a local second hand computer store and sell it to them.
