SELL UN­WANTED ITEMS

DRUM - - Advice -

Jan­uary is a good time to go through your home and try to make a lit­tle cash from items you’ve rarely used or your kids have out­grown – such as that pop­corn maker that seemed like such a good idea at the time or your son’s baby bike. Fur­ni­ture too – maybe you have a desk or a cou­ple of chairs you don’t need.

Ad­ver­tise them on sites such as Gumtree, OLX or Face­book Mar­ket­place and put a lit­tle ex­tra cash in your cof­fers. You’ll also de­clut­ter your liv­ing space, which is a great way to start a new year.

NOTE Be savvy when sell­ing online. Never hand over any­thing with­out get­ting the money first and it’s al­ways bet­ter to opt for cash as elec­tronic trans­ac­tions might be fraud­u­lent.
