Tips for Selling Household Items for Money

  • Always make sure to clean and sanitize the household items to sell. This is huge and is a must. I mean, who wants to purchase something that looks terrible and isn’t clean?
  • If clothing has holes or stains, they may need to be tossed if you can’t get them clean.
  • Think about your pricing. You definitely don’t want to underestimate the cost but you don’t want to overprice it either. Do your research and find a middle ground at your prices.

Household Items to Sell for Quick Cash

Selling items from your home may not be a huge moneymaker, but it can put a little extra moolah in your pocket. Who wouldn’t want that?

1. Clothing

Clothing - Household Items to Sell for Quick Cash

I don’t know about you but it seems like we acquire more clothes than we wear. I’m not sure how it happens, because we don’t do a lot of shopping but we have a closet that is full of clothes we’ve put towards the back. Mostly because we don’t wear them or they don’t fit anymore. Sometimes I even wonder why I spent the money on them.

The same goes for children’s clothing. Children grow so fast that they often outgrow their clothes and you are left with a pile (or piles) of clothing they can’t wear. When the kids were younger, it seemed like we would go through clothes like crazy because they were growing so much.

Instead of hoarding unwanted or outgrown clothing items in the closet, sell them. They will go to someone who will use them and you’ll have a little extra cash in your pocket.

2. Baby Items -Easiest Household Items to Sell for Quick Cash

One of the easiest items to sell, if not the 2nd easiest. Baby items are ALWAYS in demand because it is so expensive to buy them brand new. New or expecting parents love deals and buying preowned baby items is an easy way to save money and get the things you need.

The best baby items to sell:

  • strollers
  • high chairs
  • clothing
  • toys
  • cribs
  • bouncers

Pretty much anything that a baby can use and is in good shape can be sold for cash.

3. Tools

If you want to clear some clutter in the garage and make some money while you are at it… selling tools that you no longer need or use can bring you a little cash.

4. Children’s Toys


Just like clothing, children outgrow toys quickly. Sometimes, they outgrow them just as quickly as they get them leaving us with a stockpile of toys.

Toys the kids have outgrown can be sold pretty quickly. Just like children’s clothing, toys are always in demand and other parents want to take advantage of the deals. New toys are expensive and buying used can save a lot of money.

5. Books

Book lovers love finding treasures that they can read and if your books are in good shape, they can be a good thing to sell. You certainly won’t get as much as you paid for the book brand new, but knowing that for a small amount someone will get good use out of those books is worth it.

6. Electronics

We all have that pile of electronics stored away that we no longer use, so why not sell them to someone who will put them to good use. Even the old electronics that you may not think would be useful to someone could sell quickly.

7. Shoes


Have a closet full of shoes that are just sitting there? Shoes are always a popular item to sell and we’re always looking for a new fashionable pair to wear. This is another item where kids’ shoes will sell fast since kids are always outgrowing their shoes.

8. Jewelry

Jewelry makes the perfect gift and we love giving jewelry. If you have older jewelry that you no longer use, or doesn’t have any sentimental value, it can be sold to someone who will wear it.

9. Knick Knacks or Home Decor

If you’ve ever looked around at the online marketplaces or social media selling groups, you’ll find a lot of knick-knacks or home decor that are being sold. If you are like our family, we love changing up some of our home decor once in while, on a budget of course, and purchasing pre-owned decor is always a money saver.

10. Movies or CDs

I know we are moving into a more digital age where everything is electronic now. Movies and CDs seem to be going out of style and we are not collecting them like we used to. However, there are still many people out there who do use them and collect them, so selling movies and CDs might be something you have around the house that you can quickly sell. Even records have become cool again!

11. Furniture

Furniture is one of those higher-value household items you can sell for some quick cash. Similar to home decor, people may be changing up their style and will be looking to add a few pieces to their collection. There are a lot of reasons by someone would want to purchase furniture and buying used or like-new furniture can save money and put a few extra dollars in your pocket.

12. Video Games

Today’s world is full of kids and adults who play video games. With new games being over $60 to purchase, used working games are so much cheaper. Game systems are another good option to make some quick cash.
