Nearly all of us have too much stuff, especially if you have children. Kids grow out of clothes nearly as fast as you buy it for them. I bet there are toys in great condition in their closet they no longer play with, too.
Don't just throw or give it away, sell it and get some cash.
Make money selling stuff on Ebay. It's a great place to sell items, especially anything kid related. Ebay regularly offers free listings, which means you don't pay any fees until your items sell.
Holding garage and yard sales are an easy way to get rid of things that are cluttering up your house. Even items that you think have no value can sell. The saying really is true, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."
I wanted to go on vacation to see family one year, but didn't have enough money for a ticket. I had a yard sale and raised enough money to buy my ticket. Yard sales can be very profitable.
If you live in an apartment or yard sales are not permitted in your area, a great alternative to yard sales are flea markets.
If you're a busy person who doesn't have time to list and ship items on Ebay or hold a yard sale, consignment shops are for you.
Save your newest looking items for consignment shops. Like new or gently worn clothing is what consignment shops are looking for.
Making money at consignment stores is easy. These shops sell your items for you and give you a percentage of the sales.
I sold a lot of my son's baby clothes and furniture this way. The money can quickly add up if you have good items and the shop is a busy one.
