Day 17: Sell something.


Think about your house for a minute. What have you got lying around that you could sell? 

That cross trainer you never use? Your old handbag? That unwanted drill set from dad? That needlessly-complicated blender you literally have never taken out of its box? 

You’ll be amazed to hear that the average household has 25 unwanted items worth roughly $5203. That’s a big boost towards your savings goal.  

So suck up the emotional angst. You never use that bike, so you may as well get some sort of value from it.  

And you’ll be doing your bit for the environment by promoting recycling and reusing rather than ditching those unused items down the track. 

  • Clean the item if needed. We’re in the middle of a pandemic – and no one likes to buy dusty or muddy second-hand stuff
  • Now take a couple of well-lit photos of the item and think of an alluring description. Do your research and make sure you price accordingly
  • Finally, chuck it on Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace, eBay or take it to a local community buy sell swap. 

Then just sit back and watch the $$ roll in.
