Sell These Common Items for a Quick Buck

If you’re looking to find some extra cash, sometimes all you have to do is look around your home. With the advancement of online marketplaces, you can sell just about anything. Here are four common items you could sell for extra money.


When you want to upgrade to a new television, stereo, or other electronic device, don’t throw the old one away. If it’s in good condition try and sell it. Post it online and see if you get any responses. Think of it like trading in your car. Put the money you get from your old TV towards your new one. You’re saving money on a brand new device.

Scrap Metal

If you have anything metal that you want to replace or throw away, take it to a scrap yard. The heavier, the better with these items. Grills, washing machines, even bags of soda cans will get you extra money. Bring your items to a scrap yard where they will be separated and weighed. Each different metal will be priced on their current worth and you will be paid accordingly. You could also sell to someone who buys scrap metal, but your payout won’t be as much as bringing it directly to the yard.

Exercise Equipment

When the exercise equipment you bought to be healthier becomes a clothes hanger, maybe it’s time to sell it. Find an online marketplace geared towards health and fitness and post your machine. Weights, treadmills, and stationary bikes will definitely sell. If it hasn’t been used in a while make sure it still works and clean it up. The better it looks the more you will be able to get for it.


If you got a new set of tools for your birthday or over the holidays, you can sell our old ones. Look online, auction sites, or pawn shops to sell your old tools quickly and for a good price. Whether your tools go to someone with a practical use, or for rustic decoration, they are highly valuable. Older tools with high quality craftsmanship will be desirable to the right buyer.
