Things You Can Sell to Make MoneyGood Morning Dinks. Unfortunately, everyone doesn’t have an emergency fund. Sometimes people need to find a quick way to make extra money. In life, emergencies do happen that may be out of your budget. How will you legally get the money that you need? In today’s post, I go over ten things that you can sell to make money.

Old Cell Phones

People like to buy old cell phones. Some people use them while others buy them for their parts. Depending on the phone brand and model you could get over $100 for it. A good place to sell your old phone is on eBay.

Books

Books are another item that you can sell. Depending on the title, they can be sold for pretty good amounts. I’ve noticed that you make more money by selling books in groups or in sets. Making money by selling books does take a little bit of research, though. You need to know what books are popular at the moment.

Shoes

Selling shoes can make you some decent money. Dress shoes and tennis shoes are two types that you can sell for decent prices. Brands that sell pretty good are Nike, Reebok, and New Balance. Before you sell them, I would check eBay. They have a sold listings feature where you can see how much similar types of shoes have sold for.

Clothes

Clothes are the next item on the list. Certain name brands sell for a higher amount than others. Pants, jackets and certain brands of shirts sell pretty well too. When selling, make sure that you list the correct sizes and measurements.

Furniture

Furniture is the next thing that you can sell to make money. People are always looking for different pieces, so the market is always there. Some people go to thrift stores and purchase old furniture. They then fix it up and sell it on Craigslist and Facebook.

Skills

You can make money by selling your skills. Writing, coaching and photographing things are a few examples of skills that you can use to make a profit.

Video games

Selling old video games is the next thing on the list. People love their video games. I’m sure there is someone that will buy them from you. You can sell them on eBay or in Facebook groups.

Jewelry

Jewelry is another thing that you can sell to make money. Gold necklaces, chains, and rings will always sell for a decent amount. Besides selling your jewelry online, you can also pawn it.

Extra Room

If you have an extra room at your house, you can rent it out to a friend or a stranger. You can advertise your room on social media sites. You can also post it on sites like Airbnb and HomeAway.

Services

The final thing that you can sell for money is your services. Do you have a lawn care company? Are you great with Photoshop? If the answer to those questions is yes, then you can be on your way to be getting paid. Those are just two examples of potential services that you can profit off of.

4 Things You Can Do to Save Money TodayHello, Dinks. Many people have a hard time saving money. I have had up and downs with money over the years. Some years I had decent savings while others I didn’t. Over the past couple years, I started doing these things to help me save more money. They are easy, but a few of them take discipline.

Review your phone plan

The 1st thing you can do to save money is to check your phone plan. Phone plans change all the time. Phone companies don’t always relay that information to their customers. A few years ago I was paying over $100 for a plan that I am currently paying $45 for. I found out about the cheaper plan by checking my provider’s website. They didn’t e-mail or contact me about the new plan. Make sure you check your provider’s website every six months for updates. Don’t be surprised if you see a deal out there. If your provider doesn’t have any deals at the time look around and check with some of the low-cost providers. There is no reason for anyone to pay over $100 for a single cell phone line anymore.

Buy food in bulk

The next thing that you can do to save money is to buy your food in bulk. By doing this myself, I’ve been able to save a lot of money on certain items. Individual stores like Kroger’s have sales where things are cheaper the more you buy. Besides Kroger’s, some of the other stores that I’ve had success in purchasing food in bulk are Walmart and Sam’s Club.

Cut the cord

The 3rd thing that you can do is to review your cable plan. If you have cable, there are a few options that you have when it comes to saving money. The 1st thing that you can do is to get the most basic plan that is available. The smaller amount channels you have, the less your bill will be. The 2nd option that you have is that every 6-8 months you can check with your cable provider and ask them if they have any discounts. If they say no tell them that you want to cancel and go to a competitor. I’m 90% sure they will you give you a discount for a few months. The final thing you can do is cancel your cable once and for all. You can grab an HD antenna or subscribe to Hulu which is much cheaper.

Eat out less

The 4th and final way that you can save money is by eating out less. This will be hard for some people because they just don’t like to cook. Going to restaurants multiple times a week adds up quickly. If you go out to lunch four times a week and spend $10, that’s $40 bucks a week. In a month, you would have spent $160 on just lunch meals. By cooking you food from time to time, you can save a boatload of money. Meal prepping each week doesn’t take that long. If you still plan to go out make sure that you stay within your budget when ordering.
