Items to Recycle For Cash

Looking for a way to make extra cash? Try selling some of your unwanted items. So start searching around the house. Check out your closet, drawers, in the attic, garage and spare rooms for items you no longer use or haven’t used in years. Here are a few of the more popular items people have sold for extra cash.

Cell Phones
Everyone has at least one old cell phone sitting in a drawer or closet just getting old and dirty due to cell phone companies offering upgrades to their customers. However that leaves the old cell phone abandoned and never used again. You can search online to find websites where you can sell your old cell phone for cash whether it is a functioning phone or not.

DVD’s and CD’s
Wondering what to do with old movies and music CD;s? Now there are websites where you can scan your DVD or CD to find out how much it’s worth. Send as many as you want in one envelope and when the company receives them you get the cash.

There are websites that will buy your old clothes for cash. If you have items that are name brands you can get even more cash. So search through your closets and check for name brands, box them up and send them to these companies. Again once they receive the items you get the cash.

There are several companies online that will buy your old gold jewelry. This is a great way to get rid of old jewelry that you haven’t worn for a while or is broken or is missing a part. Be advised that if you have old gold jewelry that is a higher grade of gold your best option is to take it to a jeweler or sell it privately. Most gold companies are prone to offering a very low price for gold jewelry and you would not get the price that is deserved for more expensive old gold jewelry.

If you have a lot of old books whether they are hardbacks or paperbacks you can sell them online. There are websites that specialize in old books and have hundreds of customers that have a keen eye and will pay any price. You can also go to websites where they will offer you a space on their website where you can sell your books as well.

Ink Cartridges
Many websites buy old cartridges from printers and copiers for cash. There are also websites where instead of cash they offer reward points and will make a donation to your favorite cause.

These are just a few items you can sell for extra cash. If you have other items just search online under the name of the item to find websites that will buy the item for cash. For example if you have old golf shoes just search online under “sell old golf shoes” to find websites that will buy them for cash. You can also find websites that will buy old toys, sporting equipment and a variety of other items as well.
