3 things you can sell to make extra money this week

Happy hump day everyone! It’s the middle of the week and already I’m looking forward to the weekend. Want to know why? I’m planning to spend a bit of time clearing out some of my belonging and see if there’s anything I can do without. That may sound like the least exciting weekend ever but I’m really motivated to have a tidy up and clear out the clutter. It’ll make moving easier if I’ve got less stuff to shift AND I can possibly make a little extra money by selling some of it on. So I thought I’d share with you some of the ways I’m planning to earn some cash from my unwanted stuff in case you too want to earn some more money this week… 

Clothing you no longer wear? Sell it on!

Clothes

Selling your clothes couldn’t be easier and is a great way to make some extra cash. Take a look in your wardrobe and remove anything you haven’t worn in the past year because you’re probably not going to wear it this year either! Take them to a car boot sale this week and earn a few pounds for each piece. If there are some pieces that still have the tags on (there certainly are in my wardrobe anyway) these will be worth more so you could sell them online via Depop, HardlyEverWornIt or Ebay. Anything you don’t sell can be donated to charity or you could take use websites that offer to buy your clothing by the kilogram, such as Genie Recycling or Return to Earn. The added bonus of selling your clothes is that you’re decluttering your wardrobe and making some extra storage space. You’ll rediscover clothes you already own and love but that you haven’t seen in years because they were stuffed at the back of the wardrobe.

Fallen out of love with your jewellery? Sell it on!

Thrifty ways to earn extra money for summer

Summer is coming! With its long days and beautiful weather nobody wants to be short of money so that they are unable go out into the world and enjoy each and every day that the sunshine offers. There are many ways to earn some extra cash all year round, but following is my list of great and thrifty ways to make extra money to ensure you get the full enjoyment from the sun.

  • Have a sale

A perfect way to ensure that you make some extra money in a quick, easy and thrifty fashion would be to locate the unwanted items that have accumulated around your house and sell them. Whether be a physical garage sale or car boot sale, or whether you put your household excess on a selling website, such as eBay, there will always be plenty of buyers for stuff that you no longer need or desire. The extra exercise of roaming your house to locate these items, and in the case of a boot sale the direct sunlight, will have you looking fantastic for the summer months too – just don’t forget your sunscreen!

  • Go Outdoors

Although we’re not into the summer months yet, the weather is improving and it is doing so to the extent that it is possible to get out of the house and make some money for yourself. The one thing that I find is great this time of year and tends to bring in plenty of customers is dog walking as people are busy with work, the gym and many other different things in life so are looking for some help with the mundane task of taking their dogs out for walks. Print some flyers and pin them on local noticeboards, make a Facebook profile and post on local area pages, tell anybody and everybody about your scheme and you’ll be sure to have people contacting you about your summer time enterprise. What could be better than getting sun and exercise while being paid for it?
