Do you have a few things just laying around the house that you no longer need? Sell them! Why are you still holding on to them. I had a few baby clothes that my daughter wore a few times (babies grow pretty fast), and I went through them and put them up on Kijiji. Sold out within a week! So get selling. Here are a few things you can get rid of:

DVDs/ DVD players – if you do not use them 

Any kitchen appliances that you do not use (for example my coffee maker that I got-used it once). 

Furniture that you do not use 

Sporting goods or equipment that are catching dust  

Kids toys that are not getting used

Video games (my boyfriend sold 10 games that he no longer needed for $15 – easy $150.00 right there)

These are easy and the quickest ways to make money for the holidays this year. Go ahead and start making a list of things that you no long need. It’s almost like spring cleaning.

Ways to make extra cash for the holidays


  1. These are great tips! When my husband and I got engaged, we saved for the wedding by selling a bunch of stuff on Craigslist. We also moved into a smaller apartment (for more reasons than just wedding saving), but that meant we no longer had room for our dining room table and chairs or the futon in the second bedroom. Boom, made $150 getting rid of those things that we didn’t use (or collected all our mail…UGH!). Plus, $20 off DVDs, $25 off the keyboard that I convinced myself I would learn, $10 off a mirror that had been in storage for four years….etc! It was a profitable month 😀

  2. Love your post! I use Ebates all the time and I’ve been able to make a good bit of money in just a few months! I also have an article on my blog where I write about Ebates and other cash back websites: http://www.justmyunscriptedlife.com/5-easy-ways-to-earn-cash-back/
    I’ve also heard good things about Maven and I just signed up for an account. I’m going to try to get started with using it and I hope it could be a big help with my blog. Thanks!

  3. This is a great list. I always try to sell things that I no longer use, such as clothes, books, movies, and other things around the house that are taking up space.
