When it’s time to clean out your home and garage, you may be tempted to get rid of things you no longer want or need.

However, before chucking things into the trash, consider selling them instead in order to earn money while letting others haul them away for you.

  1. Unused Vehicles

    Starting outside, look through your garage for valuable tools and equipment you no longer want. Some builders will be happy to snap up your unused items for less than they would pay for new ones. If you have a car sitting around that is no longer driven, you may want to respond to published ads that offer money for junk cars. Sometimes they will buy cars that are not drivable just to get the parts.

  2. Old Toys

    Popular toys from a generation or two ago are eagerly bought by fans of those playthings as well as collectors. Toys that are in good condition and clean get the highest prices. If they are still in their original packaging, that can raise the price higher. Clean up lingering dolls, trucks, action figures, and more from your childhood and let buyers pay you to remove them from your home.

  3. Vintage Clothing

    People who box up old clothing from years ago may find an interesting market for some of those items. Dresses, shirts, slacks, suits, and accessories are often bought by theatre troupes looking for period costumes and shoppers who enjoy dressing up in clothing from a different era. The clothes and accessories should be clean and in good condition as well as reasonably priced to attract buyers.

  4. Cosmetic Jewelry

    Although you already know that valuable gemstone or classic jewelry is popular on the market, interest in cosmetic jewelry is surging. Many people like to pair old earrings, bracelets, and necklaces with period clothing to create a complete look. Older styles of cosmetic jewelry using rhinestones and turquoise, for example, often attract buyers who enjoy that era of jewelry.

  5. Antique Furniture

    You may have aging furniture that has held up very well, and you are now ready to part with it. You might even have antiques that you valued when purchased but now have no particular connection to it. Have the antique items priced by a dealer for an idea of what to charge. Chances are there will be buyer interest in these older furnishings.

Sift through your household and garage goods that you no longer use. You might be surprised to find that you can actually sell things you were planning to throw away.
