Spring cleaning doesn’t just mean dusting your space and organizing your garage. If you do it right, you could be making cash on items you think may be worthless. So before you toss something in the garbage, think twice. From everyone’s favorite auto AZ dealership, here are a few tips that could help you turn your trash bags into money bags!
Cash Your Closet
We all do it: hoard old “sentimental” t-shirts or save that cute sundress you wore to a wedding five years ago “just in case” you might wear it again. Your old wardrobe won’t exactly make you rich, but it can definitely help you make some quick cash. When organizing your clothing this spring, take any items you haven’t worn in the past year, fold them, and place the unworn clothes into buckets. Organize them by season, and bring them to a secondhand or consignment store nearby when that season comes around. Something that takes up space in your closet could actually make you some extra money!
People Will Pay For “Vintage”
Do you have any old furniture that grandma gave you several years ago taking up space in your apartment or attic? Does it look “old” or “vintage”? Then chances are, someone will want it. Post it on Craigslist, e-Bay, or bring it to a local antique or consignment store. After all, “vintage” is the new modern and people are really into refurbishing old items.
Sell Old Electronics
We all have old smartphones or TV sets you that we don’t use anymore, so sell them before it’s too late! Electronics lose value over time so the quicker you are to sell electronics, the more money you will make.
Turn High School Sports Equipment into Gold
Sports equipment can be very expensive, so it’s not surprising that people will seek out second-hand equipment so not to pay full price. You can cash in up to 25% the price you originally paid for old equipment that just sits around in your garage. Do a search online to find your nearest second-hand store or find an online retailer.
Research Community Yard Sales
Check with your local recreation department or city council to see if your town or neighborhood holds a yard sale event. If they don’t, suggest that they start one. Events like these attract a lot of people and provide ample impulse buys that you can profit on. The other benefit is that you don’t have to draw a lot of traffic to your home like a traditional yard sale.
