Money Making Hacks From Your Home

Where do you take the items that you no longer need?

Most likely, you dispose of or donate.


If yes, you have been missing out on an excellent chance to make extra dollars.

Most of those items you consider trash are highly sought-after out here.

But, if you have been avoiding this money making project simply because you aren’t sure which clutter to convert into money, here is a list of some stuff with huge demand. 

We have also suggested the offline and online marketplaces you could sell them quickly.

Take a tour.


Old DVDs, CDs, and Books

While used CDs and DVDs may look valueless, you can make some dollars by selling them.

Many people wouldn’t mind buying second-hand CDs and DVDs at a lower price since they will dispose of them after use. 

So, if you have some, sell them to resellers, used books stores, or pawn shops near you.


Old CD and DVD Old books



If you cannot find a buyer offline, list those CDs and DVDs on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Craigslist,
  • eBay,
  • Amazon,
  • Declutter, 
  • Eagle Saver.


It won’t take long to get a willing buyer. 

For books, sell them to rag pickers, students living in your neighbourhood, the local library, or bookstores.

Also, you can list the books on reputable online stores like:

  • AbeBooks,
  • Etsy,
  • Amazon.


Clothes, Shoes, Handbags, and Jewellery

Clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewellery have a ready market online and offline.

Actually, these items rank among the most in-demand items in the market.

So, if you are one of those people with little time and patience to market things, don’t give up clothes. 

You can sell your used clothes, shoes, jewellery, and handbags to local second-hand clothes stores, pawnshops, and consignment shops around your home.

These are the best options for homeowners who want quick cash with just a little effort.  


Old Clothes Old Handbag



Besides selling offline, you can list those clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewellery on renowned marketplaces like:

  • TheRealDeal,
  • Poshmark,
  • Tradesy, 
  • Refashioned.


You can as well sell directly to your followers on Facebook and Instagram. 


Kids Toys and Games Accessories

Buying new and expensive toys or game accessories isn’t something that caregivers love.

No matter their value, children are likely to abuse these gadgets, not knowing that they cost a fortune. 

As a result, many caregivers opt for less costly used toys to cut down the expenses.

That said, you can take advantage of the high demand to clear off the toys cluttering your home for money. 


Kids Toys


You can advertise them directly to parents and caregivers in your neighbourhood or list them on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Craigslist,
  • Toycycle,
  • eBay,
  • 5Miles,
  • Kidzen,
  • Bonanza,
  • GumTree,
  • FreeYourShelves,
  • and other online platforms.   



Whether you have used sofas, coffee tables, or office furniture, the online world has endless marketplaces where you can put your furniture for sale.

Unlike the past, Craigslist and eBay are no longer the only platforms where you can sell used furniture.


Used furniture


You can list them on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Letgo,
  • Etsy,
  • Facebook Marketplace,
  • Offerup,
  • Apartment Therapy Bazaar,
  • Trove, 
  • Instagram.


The good thing with these marketplaces is, you don’t have to spend much time marketing.

You will need to sign up on your favourite marketplace, take good pictures of the furniture you are selling, and describe them appealingly.

Afterwards, post the photos and wait for interested buyers to contact you.

If the online marketplace doesn’t work for you, organise a yard sale or sell them to furniture resellers.


Gaming items

With thousands of teens, adults, and kids who spend their free time gaming, video games, consoles, and other accessories have a huge demand.

Many gamers wouldn’t mind spending on a low-cost, second-hand item that works great.

So, where can you find these buyers?

You can list the items on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Craigslist,
  • Swappa,
  • SellCell,
  • Amazon,
  • GameStop,
  • Gameflip, P
  • layerup,
  • Second Spin,
  • The Old School Game Vault,
  • DKOldies,
  • Best Buy.


Many gamers frequent these sites looking for good deals. 

If you want quick cash, check if the pawn shops near you are buying.

Many shops won’t hesitate to buy, as long as the gaming accessories aren’t overly scratched, banged-up, or too old to be sold to a third party. 


Hobby related items

Frankly, the demand for hobby-related items is relatively lower than that of other used items like kids’ toys, clothes, used books, cycles, tools, and furniture.

So, if you wish to make extra dollars from your hobby-related items, you have to be intelligent and patient. 

Since hobbyists are pretty picky, it would matter to refurbish, clean, or repair your items before listing them on popular marketplaces like:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Facebook Marketplace,
  • Amazon,
  • Craigslist,
  • eBay. 



Hobby items


Besides selling them on general marketplaces, it would be better to opt for niche marketplaces.

That way, your hobbyist products will get exposure to the right target buyers—not just anybody.

The online world has a marketplace for almost every item out there.



The artwork is more of an essential addition to almost all homes and offices.

Therefore, you shouldn’t face much hassle in finding someone to buy them online or offline. 

If you want to sell them quickly, we propose them to artists.

Unlike many resellers, artists have a ready market. So, they won’t hesitate to buy it.


Artwork Painting


They will refurbish and polish the artwork to look as good as new before passing them to the next owner. 

You can also sell the old artwork to resale dealers, consignment shops, and auction houses.

If offline doesn’t work for you, get online and list them on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • eBay,
  • Amazon,
  • Etsy,
  • Instagram,
  • Facebook marketplace, T
  • he Place 4 Art,
  • Artsy.  


Cycles of all kind

There is always someone willing to keep the bike that has already bored you.

So, before you consider giving it out for free, try your luck selling.

You might be surprised to find someone who will buy it at a fair price. 

If you want instant cash, sell the bike in the cycle resellers, pawnshops, or sporting goods stores.




Many of these facilities will buy your bike the same day as long as it is in excellent working condition. 

If the bike resellers don’t offer a reasonable price, expand your scope to the online world.

Take the best pictures of the bike, give a short description of its features, and list it on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • The Pro’s closet,
  • Craigslist,
  • Goodbye Cycle,
  • eBay,
  • Amazon.


Appliances and gadgets

With so many people looking for bargain deals on gadgets and appliances, selling laptops, computers, fridges, sound systems, and any other electronic devices have never been this easy. 

Actually, electronic gadgets rank as the best selling items in pawnshops and other reselling stores.


Hand mixer


Like any other second-hand item, you don’t have to sell your used electronics offline.

You can list it on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Amazon,
  • eBay,
  • Swappa,
  • NextWorth,
  • Offerup,
  • Letgo, 
  • Craigslist,


List them here, and you won’t miss an interested buyer.


DIY tools

Pawnshops are the number one buyers of used tools.

They can hardly turn down your offer, not unless your tools are excessively worn out.

Therefore, before looking for other avenues to sell your tools, scout for a good deal in downtown pawn shops.

Nevertheless, pawn shops have a reputation for buying used tools at an unreasonably low price.

Therefore, if you aren’t in a rush to make money out of your clutter, go the online way.

List them on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • Craigslist,
  • Ecwid,
  • Amazon,
  • eBay, 
  • Etsy


Vintage stuff

Worthless as they look, many vintage items are like precious gems.

They can bring enough dollars on your way if you find the right buyer.

So, if you have some vintage items to declutter, don’t rush to pawn shops for quick cash.  

Instead, look for buyers who understand the value of vintage items. 


Vintage stuff


There are two sure ways to get maximum value from the items.

First, conduct quick research to establish if your vintage items are museum-worthy.

If they are, scout around for a market in museums around. 

Suppose they aren’t museum-worthy—leverage on the vintage item’s uniqueness to get those dollars.

Craft a captivating description of the product, take clear photos, and then list them on:

  • Perth Classifieds
  • eBay,
  • Amazon,
  • Craigslist,
  • Artfire,
  • Bonanza,
  • Webstore,
  • Etsy. 


Thousands of vintage enthusiasts wouldn’t mind spending more on such stuff. 


Go Ahead and Make That Extra Dollar

Decluttering is a money-making opportunity that could make you some extra dollars to settle your bills.

Boost your emergency kitty, or buy other usable stuff.

Therefore, if you have piles of artwork, tools, electronic accessories, vintage items, clothes, toys, or cycles that you no longer need, don’t dispose of them.

Sell them online or offline.
