It may be trash to you, but to someone else it’s treasure.

We’re talking about old clothes, books, jewelry, old cell phones, children’s toys, even parts from broken or outdated appliances…the list is endless.

A 28-year-old woman recently made $2,400 in four months selling mostly small items that she no longer wanted or needed. “I can’t tell you how many things I’ve sold that I literally thought, Nobody is going to buy this,” she said. “I had athletic shorts that had paint on the side, and somebody bought them. I don’t think people realize that somebody will find value in things that you don’t find value in anymore.”

The truth is, there is a fascinating cultural shift going on. In the past, people wanted only what was shiny and new. But in today’s world, where “grunge is good” and some of the hottest clothes and accessories are made from recycled items, there may be a whole new life for your toss-aways.

So if you’re looking for something to do on a cold winter afternoon, take a look around. Your home could be filled with clutter that can be turned into fast cash.  It doesn’t take a lot of effort, thanks to the many easy-to-use online selling apps that are available today.

And don’t forget to check that jar of loose change. You may find one of these rare coins. Many are worth $100 or more, and there’s one that could be worth more than $1 million!
