Sell unused items

If spending hours prepping items for sale then sitting in your lawn haggling with random strangers and neighbors from dawn to noon sounds like a good time there is certainly money to be made and you can usually sell a bulk of items in a short period of time; however, garage sales don’t work well for high ticket items, usually leave you with something unsold that you have to deal with not to mention the setup and take down chores. Alternatively, consider using a sales app to offer your items online locally or anywhere in the world.

All you need to do is provide a photo, a short description and a sales price. You can wait for that right price, haggle or setup an auction. Most apps allow multiple online payment options or you can setup to meet at secure locations in person. Lastly if you have a number of bulky, valuable items that need to be seen to be appreciated consider an Estate Sale or a local Auction house run by professionals to help you get what you are looking for.
