1. CD’s, Video Games & DVDs

Still hanging on to those pre-iPod CDs? It’s time to add them to the garage sales pile!

DeCluttr is an easy-to-use, free app (or website) that will buy them from you. Just download the app onto your smartphone and scan the barcode of your unwanted media (or type the code into their website) to find out how much they’ll pay.

Most items will only go for a dollar or two, but they’re STILL dollars you didn’t have before you started with your things to sell online.

They even pay for shipping! Box it all up, mail it in, and your check will arrive in 7-10 business days, or same day with PayPal.
**Note: The discs must be in their plastic packaging.**

2. Antiques And Knick-Knacks

Junkables is the perfect place to offload some of those antiques or interesting odds and ends—costume jewelry, comics, clocks, glassware, etc.; items that we like to refer to as “dust catchers.” These are the items that are usually left over at garage sales anyway.

Better yet, it is an easy and FREE alternative to eBay, so there is no listing or commission fees.

Junkables makes money solely through advertising, so you keep 100% of your profits. It is an online auction, so you’ll just need to enter descriptions and buyers pay you through PayPal, making it super-duper easy! These selling stuff online tips are so easy with these apps!

3. Electronics, Smartphones, Computers, Tablets, & Video Games

Gather up old phones, computers and gaming systems, and then enter the model numbers into the homepage of Nextworth for an instant quote instead of trying to sell them at garage sales.

Another option is to trade in your items to Amazon.

Both companies have you to print a free shipping label, mail and get a check in 3-10 business days (or same day with PayPal). They will even wipe out your personal data before refurbishing an item, although we recommend doing it yourself before you send it in.

I found that Amazon had the most valuable trade available for my Toshiba Thrive Tablet. And you can even select the option for them to send your item back for free if it turns out to be valued less than what you expected.

Nextworth was also a great resource to recycle electronics even if your item is not worth anything!

And now you can see how easy it is to sell your yard sale items!

4. Books

Sure, you can list used books on Amazon, but Powell’s is the country’s largest independent bookshop so you have the potential to make the most from them!

To sell through their website, simply enter the book’s ISBN number (it’s on the copyright page, or on the back of the book) to find out how much it’s worth. **Heads Up: Most books go for under $10, but so much better than at garage sales!

Powell’s will also give you 40% more in store credit instead of cash if you opt to trade old books for new ones.

As soon as Powell’s receives your book (so it does not have to be sold), you get paid instantly through PayPal. PLUS, they pay the shipping! Just make sure your books are in good condition using guidelines on the website.

Please do note if your book is missing part of its cover. If so, it would be best donated to a charitable organization such as Goodwill, a thrift shop or shelter. (Don’t forget to ask for a receipt)!

5. Clothing

Our favorite way to sell clothes, especially for kids is via ThredUp.

Just request one of their “Clean Out Bags”, fill it up, and ship it for free with their printable label. You will get 40% of the sales price up front, before your item even sells!

The best part ~ you don’t have to take any photos. Just stuff, send & collect! Women’s clothing and accessories are hot items for online sales.

Two other easy options are Poshmark and Tradesy. For those, simply upload a photo of the item(s) you want to sell to the free app or website and add it to your online closet. Listing is FREE and you make up to 91% on each sale (Poshmark 80%, Tradesy 91%). Shipping is paid by the buyer, so all you have to do is box up your clothes, print the free shipping label, and drop your parcel off at the nearest post office! Cash-Ching!

That’s so much easier than trying to sell them at garage sales! Am I right?!!

So I hope you now get down to business to sell your stuff with these selling stuff online tips so you can get busy making money!

Plus, with these best things to sell online you can part with your junk and take that cash to the bank.

And, when you put these yard sale items up for sale, you can clean out the clutter and breathe easier in your own home.
