Moving can be stressful, tiresome, and expensive. You deserve a kickback! Check out these ways to make some money during your residential move from Motivated Movers in Birmingham, AL.
Sell Your Leftover Packing Supplies
Moving requires boxes and more boxes. Well, once you don’t need them anywhere, try selling them! Even making just a dollar or 50 cents per box is better than throwing them away. Of course, you can always recycle your boxes at a plant as well. Often, recycling organizations will offer you small compensation for cardboard. Call your local recycling plant to find out more information.
Take a Look in the Closet
Think about all those clothes that don’t fit anymore or have simply gone out of style. They might be exactly what someone else is looking for! Pick a price around 40-50% less than the price you originally paid for each item, depending on how much wear and tear it’s showing. If it’s a popular item or brand, you can give it a higher price. Then, try selling them on Facebook trading sites, Craigslist, or at local consignment stores.
Books, Magazines, Tools, Toys
Consider all the accumulated junk you’ve been throwing into closets or boxes. Now is your chance to get rid of the junk and make a little cash! If you decide to have a yard sale, you can put out all of your items at once. If not, there are other ways to approach selling your possessions as well.
Replacing your old, worn-out tools? You can sell your experienced equipment on eBay or Craigslist. Got books and magazines you’ve already read cover to cover? Depending on the popularity of what you’re selling, you can try a local secondhand book store or online trading site. Textbooks can be sold online at Chegg.com or Amazon.com. Children’s items like toys don’t usually sell for much, but thrift stores and consignment shops are good places to try to get rid of them.
Donations Make Dough
Besides selling all your unwanted furniture, electronics, and china, you can also make donations during your residential move. Many donations are recognized by the IRS and help you receive tax deductions. Your entire move might be tax deductible! Save money left and right. We’ve got you covered!
