What should I sell?

November 11, 2015

I’ve had a look around the house for things I can sell lately. Mainly because I’d love to make some extra money, but also because there is a lot of stuff lying around that I’ll never use. So why not pop it up for sale and let someone else enjoy it.

I’m struggling to figure out what’s worth listing and what’s not, but so far I’ve listed some make-up products and books. I’ve tried selling clothes in the past, but I find it too difficult. Mainly because people always want me to measure the clothing, and I can’t be bothered!

I’ll have to sell my old iPhone 5 at some point too. I guess I better list it sooner rather than later, seeing as it only goes down in value the longer I wait. I just don’t know much about technology, so wouldn’t be able to describe it in a way that will really sell the phone. I will probably get Jeremy to do it for me seeing as he’s a huge Apple fan and probably knows stuff about their products that I wouldn’t have a clue about.

My question now is, what else can I sell? If you’ve got any tips for things I should look for around the house and get rid of, let me know!

    Furniture that’s clutter, expensive handbags, clothing to a consignment store, old kitchen products you don’t use, your ipod, then have a garage sale for knick knacks.

      I’ve always wanted to have a garage sale, but I don’t think I have enough stuff to sell to set one up. Also, it’s usually super windy in Wellington, and seeing as I don’t have a garage – only a carport, it could get a bit messy! Haha. Thanks for the tips!

        Lol yeah garage sales are definitely dependent on where you live! 😀

        What about somewhere like the Brooklyn markets, if they still do those?

          Hmm.. Can’t say I’ve been to the Brooklyn markets, but I don’t think I’d have enough things to sell anyway!

    Look for a store that have clothing recycling programs! In the states, I’m not sure if NZ has these stores, I recycle clothes at H&M to get 15% off my total purchase. Other than that expensive old, out of style handbags, old electronics!

      Thanks for the tip. We do have recycle boutiques here where you can hand clothes in and they will sell them for you and you get a cut of the price. I tried it once before but forgot to pick up the money so it was donated to charity! Haha. Oh well.. I didn’t really mind, it’s always good to give to charity.

        Yes I was going to say that too! You get hardly anything but it’s better than nothing. Or could u take your stuff to a car boot sale and sell there?

          I don’t even know if we have any car boot sales around, haha. Never seen one.

    Tableware and glasses that you no longer use, shoes that you no longer wear but are in good condition, small decorative items that clutter the house, books and DVD’s, games you no longer play

    Do you have any textbooks or stuff from studying? Always best to sell them asap to get as much s possible for them and they take up sooo much space! Also, any hobbies you’ve given up? Pretty sure everyone’s got a guitar in the closet or an equivalent. Old sport gear you don’t use?

      I have a road code, but no other study books as I never studied in New Zealand. The only hobby I’ve really had is cooking and I don’t really want to get rid of my cook books. Never played instruments or sports! Haha. Great tips though!

    Have you ever heard of GlamBot? You can sell them your unused or slightly used makeup products! They sell them on after that for a discount. It’s so much better than trying to find someone to give products that didn’t work for you.

      Haven’t heard of GlamBot before but I just had a quick look, and I don’t know if you can use them from New Zealand. 🙂
