👉 We all have those things sitting in our home that are too good to throw out – but that we never thought someone would pay for. We leave them there, languishing in a cupboard, even though we never use them, even though we spent money on them, and even though somebody else might want them. 👉 Surprisingly, a lot of the things sitting in your home can prove highly popular when you sell them online, especially when they’re reasonably priced. Think of the old saying, ‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’. 👉 There is a much bigger market than you might think for secondhand goods. While they may not sell for the original price you bought them for, they can definitely rake in a bit of extra cash. 👉 Before you decide to declutter your home or throw out all the ‘useless’ things you have lying around, check out our list of 8 surprising items inside your home that people will pay for. ☝️1. Pre-loved clothes and vintage fashion☝️ Most of us have at least half a dozen things that we rarely wear or, in some cases, don’t wear at all. Maybe it’s the capri jeans that you no longer fit into, or the adorable summer dress that you only wore once or twice. Rather than letting them clutter up your wardrobe, why don’t you see what you can get for them online? ☝️2. Health and beauty products☝️ Have you ever been the unhappy recipient of a gift of body lotion or perfume that completely wasn’t your style? A well-meaning family member or friend may have spent a lot of money on it so you accept it through gritted teeth, knowing you’ll never use it and resenting that they didn’t just give you cash. Well, you don’t have to let it go to waste, and you can still turn it into cash by selling it online! Many online shoppers look for new or barely used perfumes, bodycare and skincare products because they are typically much cheaper than they are in the shops. ☝️3. Indoor and outdoor furniture☝️ Surprisingly, furniture is easier to sell than most items as it tends to last longer, and even if it’s been used before, it still looks great if it has been well-maintained. Take, for instance, someone who may have used a two-seater leather sofa for a few years. They may be ready to upgrade to a bigger model, but they have kept the sofa looking great with leather polish and conditioning cream. ☝️4. Gadgets, cables and electronics☝️ While some people may prefer to shop brand-new for electronics and gadgets, plenty of others like to look online for a lower price to get their technological toys. From iPads to MacBooks; Nintendos to Nixons; speakers to drones, you can sell nearly any electronic item that you have lying around. They might want it for a stage prop, a toy for their kids, you’ll never know if someone is looking specifically for that old gizmo you have. ☝️5. Antique Items & Collectibles☝️ Do you have a dusty old high tea set that your grandmother left behind, or a decorative figurine that you suspect may be worth quite a few hundred dollars? Do your research – you can often even do this online – and turn it into pocket money. There is a huge group of people dedicated to scouring the internet for antique items, pottery, porcelain, figures and vases. ☝️6. Video games and gaming consoles☝️ Looking to clear out space in your games cabinet for new ones? An avid group of gamers are waiting to snap up your used video games online, particularly old or limited-release ones that are now difficult to find. According to many, video games never go out of style, which means that you can be almost 100% sure that your old video games will sell. ☝️7. Books and office stationery☝️ Shoppers who like to read love used books. They’re cheap, you can find titles that are no longer available in bookstores, and environmentally, it’s a considerate choice! If you have read some of your books too many times to be counted and want to make some space on your bookshelves for new titles, you can bet your bottom dollar that your used books can make you some money. Unused office stationery can also do well online. ☝️8. Design and craft items☝️ Whether you are a professional artist or you like to create things with your hands but have never thought seriously about selling your crafts, you may be pleased to learn that there are buyers for your work. If you have talent, someone else on a website such as Carousell may be highly interested in buying what you have to offer.
