Save Money Make Money with Emma’s Top Tips!

Most of us could do with some extra cash, but knowing where to begin can be daunting. Decluttering your home is a great start to boosting your bank balance, not to mention helping you to have a tidier home.

Once you’ve separated your sellable items from those that are destined for the tip, there are a number of ways you can go about releasing their cash potential.

Sell them on eBay. eBay has millions of buyers looking for just about anything. Some of the oddest things that have sold on eBay include air guitars, broken cameras and old shoes. You’ll need to photograph your items and write a small description, but also make sure you charge the correct postage before you list – you don’t want to lose all your profit to postage fees.

Facebook selling groups allow you to sell from the comfort of your own home and have buyers collect items from you. Search Facebook for “Ely Bay” and “Littleport buying and selling” for local groups.

Car boot sale season is in full swing, so now is a great time to hold a stall. You should ensure that your items are clean, priced and that you have plenty coin change and plastic bags for your buyers. Take your own snacks so you aren’t tempted to spend your profits at the burger van.

Music Magpie, Zapper and Ziffit offer cash for your old CDs, games, DVDs, with Zapper and Ziffit also offering to buy your books. All you need to do is pop in the barcode and they will make an offer straight away.

CEX has recently opened in Cambridge, and they’re interested in buying your unwanted games, DVDs, CDs, consoles and other electrical items.
