Did you know that there are items that you may have that you can sell to make some extra money?

The average household has a lot of extra stuff laying around and taking up space. Too many clothes, old electronics that have been tossed to the side, useless furniture, books you’re never going to read again, and more.

And, your cell phone is one of them.

Whether you are looking to make extra cash or if your primary objective is to declutter your home, there are many items around your home that you may be able to sell.

This extra money can be used to pay off debt, save more money, go on a vacation, and more.

I’ve heard all the excuses for why a person doesn’t want to try selling their old cell phones and tablets:

  • “It’s too old.”
  • “But, no one will pay for my junk.”
  • “That item isn’t worth it.”
  • “It’s so much easier just to throw it away or toss it into a drawer.”
  • “What can I sell to make money? I have nothing!”

According to SellCell, 40% of millennials store their phone away when upgrading to a new one, instead of selling it. Another 16% gave their cell phones away to a family member or friend, and 3% actually said that they just throw their cell phones away!

Cell phones are expensive, and many people spend hundreds of dollars every year getting a new cell phone.

If you upgrade your phone and don’t sell your old one, then you’re going to lose money. So many people just put their old cell phone in a drawer and forget about it forever, while it simply collects dust.

Whether you are simply upgrading your cell phone or if you have to replace it because it is broken or damaged (even due to water damage!), your cell phone and/or tablet may still have value. And, before you simply trade in your old phone to your carrier when you upgrade, you should price around with Usually, your carrier is giving you a super low price, when you may be able to earn around 25% more by selling it through a buyback website.
