Make Money Online Selling Your Trash
You know the old saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure?” Well, it’s very true, especially when it comes to unwanted items found around the house and garage. It has been determined by online auction experts that every household contains at least $5,000 worth of products that could be sold online. Unfortunately, these potentially profitable products often get thrown in the trash.
One individual decided to get rid of his old VHS videotapes and started to throw them away but then decided to try selling them on eBay. Two sacks full of old videotapes ultimately made him an extra $500.
A friend of mine wanted to get rid of some old cassette tapes, and decided to sell them on eBay rather than at a garage sale for five bucks. She listed them on eBay for a low price, and the bid reached over $200.
I recently cleaned out an old jewelry box and found a few pieces of scrap gold that I had intended to throw away but never got around to it. Instead of throwing them away, I put them up for auction on eBay, and those scraps sold for over $250!
Some online auction experts have come to the conclusion that easy fortunes are lost everyday by those who throw away unwanted items when they could sell them online for cash. Some unwanted items will only sell for a dollar or two, while other items will surprise you and sell for much more.
The next time you look at all the unwanted stuff in your house and garage as trash and think about throwing it away, just take a look on eBay or your favorite online auction site and see what others are willing to pay for the unwanted items. Some quick research might surprise you with the amount of cash your trash could put into your pocket.
Many successful eBay sellers started out by selling unwanted items around the house and garage. Then they went on to sell popular products in hot, lucrative niches to make their fortunes on eBay.
