9 Things You Can Sell Right Now to Make Money Immediately

This post may contain affiliate links. Click here to read my full disclosure.

When I was in high school, I lived on my own and remember borrowing $.50 from friends so that I could buy a bag of Gardettos for lunch. 

I’m not kidding, y’all. I didn’t even have spare change for a bag of processed junk food, let alone enough money for a sandwich or lunch tray. 

I know what it feels like to struggle…to come home to an eviction notice….to feel utterly hopeless.

The good news is in 2020, the internet has made it so easy to sell household items with very little effort. If you feel safe, you can literally have the buyer come to you. How cool is that?!

Whether you’re in a bind and need to buy food or you just want to make extra money to put towards your debt payoff goals, here are 17 things you can sell to make money immediately.

1. Make Money Immediately Selling Blood Plasma

Ok…this isn’t a household item, but I’d be crazy not to tell you about a couple of years I spent donating blood plasma for $400 per month. 

Not only was it a quick way to earn cash the same day, but I was saving lives while doing it.

2. Household Appliances

Remember when you just had to have that Kitchenaid mixer? What about that air fryer you bought as a new year’s resolution? Those are worth cold, hard cash. If you’re not using them, consider listing them for sale in the Facebook marketplace. They hold their value pretty well and you can always replace them later.

3. Tree Stands

My husband just sold a deer stand he has had in the garage for years. When we moved up to Illinois, we lost hunting privileges at a property in Georgia, and my husband has no use for it. We can always buy a new one, but it was taking up space, so he sold it and made a quick $40.

4. Clothing

I KonMari’d the hell out of my house this year. We are in a constant state of decluttering and organizing, and it feels so freeing to get to a minimalist closet. I’d love to eventually get down to a capsule wardrobe, but for now, we’re taking it one item of clothing at a time.

We have the ‘one in, one out’ rule. When we acquire a new item and bring it into our home, we have to get rid of something. Usually, we get rid of several items and it’s really helping keep the house nice and organized.

5. Toys

While I don’t think you should sell all of your kids’ toys, if they haven’t touched them in months, it’s probably time to say goodbye and make room for other toys or just space to enjoy their bedrooms. 

A word of advice: Never (and I mean NEVER) declutter or get rid of kids’ toys while the kids are home. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! 

6. Old Furniture

If you’re anything like me, you collect people’s discarded furniture on the side of the road. You had plans for rehabbing it: repainting with chalk paint and making it new again. I get it.

But if you haven’t achieved this goal and your home is becoming a storage unit, you might want to sell some items. Furniture sells pretty quickly (even if it is chipped or needs refinishing). 

7. Patio Furniture

Are you planning on upgrading patio furniture in the next year? Why not sell your current set in the off-season. That way when Spring comes you’re able to pressure wash the deck, add flower boxes, and finally make that outdoor living space of your dreams. 

8. Office Supplies

I am an office supply geek. I mean, I loooooove me some planners and notebooks, and I’m obsessed with mildliners. But I actually use everything I buy. In fact, I have about 15 notebooks scattered throughout the house with my notes and budgets and inspiration written all up in them.

But if you’re the type of person who buys pens and markers and notebooks but doesn’t ever write in them, you might be able to gather up some supplies and sell them in bulk (especially if it’s back-to-school season).

9. Shoes and Accessories

This kind of goes along with clothes, but I’m separating them out because I know nearly every single one of you are reading this thinking “I do have lots of purses and shoes that I don’t use but once or twice a year”. 

I had to have a ‘Come to Jesus’ meeting with someone very close to me this week about hoarding purses. I realize that you might like to change purses out with the season, and that’s fine, but do you really need 4-5 different purses for every season? 

This might be a great way to make extra money on the side.

Whether you’re seriously struggling to make ends meet and living paycheck to paycheck or you’re just wanting to declutter and come up with some extra cash to pay towards your debt snowball, I’m willing to bet you have several of these household items lying around the house. 

The question is “Are you willing to part with stuff to reach your goals?”
