Completely running out of money just before payday is a pretty horrible feeling, isn’t it? Having to survive on little money or borrowing cash at a high interest rate is enough to make you feel pretty poor.
However, let’s look at on the bright side for a few minutes and consider a few hidden treasures in your house which might mean you are richer than you think.
Your Old Music and Movies
You can dream of finding a rare record which is worth thousands of pounds, can’t you? If you have any old vinyl discs lying about your home with a youthful looking Paul McCartney on them, strange artwork or with the singer’s autograph then it could be your passport to a very healthy bank balance. Even if you don’t find any of these valuable things you could still earn a decent sum of cash by selling your old CDs. It is easy to go online and find out how much each one is worth these days, so in no time at all you can work out whether or not it is worth selling a few of the albums you no longer listen to. Who ever thought that Right Said Fred and The Cheeky Girls were going to make you some money one day? The same principle applies to the movies you own but no longer watch. If you have seen Titanic a million times or no longer find Mr Bean’s antics as funny as they once were then you could sell your old DVDs and get some money for them too. It certainly seems a better idea than leaving them lying around gathering dust while you scrimp by at the end of the month.
Your Collection of Old Mobile Phones
If I asked you to go away now and check how many old mobile phones are lying about your home how many would you find there? I would guess that you – like most of us – have got at least one in your home you no longer plan on using. In fact, many homes across the country now have about half a dozen of these things lying in cupboards, drawers and elsewhere. At the rate with which we currently upgrade our phones it is no surprise to see that big families often build up big collections of unwanted phones fairly quickly. That being the case, it makes perfect sense to sell them online. You might be surprised to find that these old phones are worth a lot more than you had expected. If you sell a bunch of them on the internet then you can pick up enough money to live the good life for a few days or at least pay off some of the bills which are preying on your mind. You aren’t even going to miss any of those old things, are you? Of course, if you have an antiquated brick phone which you used back in the days when they weighed more than a small child you might find a museum to take it off your hands instead.
Your Old Clothes
What do you do if you have a whole lot of old clothes lying around you no longer use? There are a number of ways in which this can happen. Maybe you lost some weight, gained some weight, found a new style or just realised that you no longer like the old stuff you bought in the past. A few minutes’ worth of research on the internet will let you just how much your old clothes can bring you in. We all have old clothes we don’t care for anymore, so it is worth checking in your wardrobe to see if you have any old jeans, jumpers or blouses you don’t intend to ever wear again. More mature readers might even find a pair of psychedelic flares or some winklepinkers they had forgotten about.
Just About Anything Else
Really, you could sell just about anything you have which is useful these days. Many people have now realised that selling the items they no longer want is a great way to supplement their income and let them buy new things. Another benefit is that you clear up some valuable space in your home. Why let your cupboard and wardrobe space get taken up with things you are never going to use again? If you don’t want something then there is a good chance that someone somewhere will be only too glad to take it off your hands.
