Fashion and Everything else

There may be times when you feel compelled to get rid of things. For example, in the lead-up to the festive season, it’s common to spring clean and change out old clothes for new ones. Or maybe you’re moving to a new place and you can’t keep all your stuff.

That dress you haven’t worn in months, that you say you’ll wear one day has been sitting in the closet collecting dust. Instead of dust, turn it into cash when you sell it.

Those branded sneakers you bought last year could fetch you as much as $75.

Even that, outdated IKEA 2-seater sofa set could earn you a nice sum of $190, or that bicycle which you haven’t ridden in a year could net you a smooth $280.

And while they may not be the obvious item to sell, books can be also be a nice little earner – if you have enough of them to sell.
