I wish I had things to sell, but I hate clutter! I have a friend that made thousands by selling stuff just lying around in her garage on some Facebook groups. I think that Craigslist is a terrible place to sell nowadays, and Facebook is safer. However, there are some great apps where you can rate sellers and buyers, which makes it easier to find the flakes. LetGo is a new one I was thinking about checking out.

I have tried to sell on Etsy for handmade items, but I couldn't make a go of it. I only sold two, and the rest of the months I paid the fees for listing. Even though the fees are not astronomical, but months after months add up. I have signed up Poshmark, but didn't have time to set up or take pictures of my items yet. Hopefully, I can do this soon.

I don't sell things too often, as I find that people often times don't show up if it is a real life buyer. Also, I find that people ask a lot of questions, and then don't buy the item. I have had a snowboard, I have tried to sell for years. I am have a netbook I wanted to sell, but now I can't find the charging cord for it. Yikes@! well, I am glad you have made money that way...Anyone want to buy a snowboard?? lol

I've just gotten back into eBay.  I took a long break after accidentally letting my listings expire (that's a lot of work to lose).  I just felt burned, and I still think they should keep your old listings until you delete them yourself.  But anyway, I've been able to sell quite a few things lately, and it's really helped clear the closets and boost my PayPal account! :D

The other thing I'm kind of addicted to right now is Yerdle.  It's like a swap of sorts, no money changes hands but you get credits for the items you give.  You only pay shipping plus a small fee for the items you want to buy, so for large lots or high value items, you can get some ridiculously good deals as a buyer.  And again, clearing out the closets!

I've sold old clothes before at a shop that paid per kilo of clothing when it was clothing that was too bad to be able to sell the items individually. I've also sold old CDs, DVDs and computer games at second hand entertainment shops for money. I don't really have a lot else that would be worth selling though, I don't think.

There are some good internet thrift stores that you can use to sell your old stuff. If you're not interested in eBay, even thought it's the best service out there, then you should probably try out sites like WebThriftStore and such. You can also test places like Etsy. Google is your friend in this situation!

I have only ever used eBay and I usually have good luck with it. I have been selling some of my clothes on there and have not really had that many that has not sold and the price I am getting is decent. There are so many places to sell from nowadays that it can be quite overwhelming. Poshmark, Thred Up, Letgo, Twice, and I am sure there are others. I looked at Thred Up but most of the clothes I have, they do not take. They are mostly high end name brands which I cannot afford to buy anyway. That is the nice thing about eBay. It does not have to be high end clothing to sell. Of course, I have the best luck at selling educational DVD for children, video games, and vintage toys.

I sell clothing and accessories on Poshmark for over a year and a half now and have had success with it. I sell items of various sizes. I have had clothes given to me from friends and family that were wanting to clean out their closets and knew I sold on Poshmark. I also go to thrift shops to find items to sell. I have found some really nice brands that way for very little. Just make sure what you are getting are in nice shape. I purchased a hollow torso mannequin and use a dark sheet as a backdrop to display my items. I have also found some really good deals on the site for myself.

Selling old clothing items is not available in our country. However, selling trash items with recycle value is available. I sell tin and aluminum cans, old newspapers, scrap metals and make few bucks. Interestingly, I can use my old clothes by shredding and making mattress.

I wish I could sell old clothes and toys as I have plenty of those. Sadly my wife loves to accumulate stuff which is nonsense to me because we live in a small flat, so no deal here.

I never thought of this. At times we have lots of unused things in the house, so instead of leaving them to deteriorate, it is best to sell them off for some cash. I think this is a good idea. I will check if there are such sites in the country where I live.

So true... I have a few clothes I can sell, but if I look at my wife's clothes or my kids, come one, it's a lot of money sitting there that could be converted into something useful.

I keep saying I will finally start doing this, considering the amount of never ending bag of clothes piled up in storage.  It is just so time consuming, and I have to separate the clothing.  I know it will be well worth it, so I may try to do some spring cleaning.
