One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Your pile of junk in the basement could be a gold mine if you play your cards right. Here are three ways that you can turn your unwanted goods into cold hard cash.

Host a Tag Sale

A tag sale is a great way to get rid of a bunch of your unwanted goods at the same time. It doesn’t take a lot of work to host one either: all you really need is some stuff to sell and supplies to make signage. This tag sale checklist will tell you everything you need to do to host a successful sale.

Bring Your Goods to a Consignment Shop or Auction House

Consignment shops put your goods on display in exchange for a cut of the profits if they happen to sell. They are an especially effective place to get rid of gently-used clothing, baby items, and children’s toys. Auction houses are a great option too – most of them even handle the less glamorous activities such as advertising and shipping.

Sell Your Stuff Online

When all else fails, turn to the internet to sell your goods. Chances are that someone, somewhere might be interested in what you have to sell. The two most popular websites for this are eBay and Craigslist, but newer sites such as Etsy, Let Go, and Poshmark are enticing options as well.

Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to convert all of your junk into cash. That’s where we come in.
