    You got everything covered here. This is a very comprehensive guide and I am sure will help many people, disable or otherwise to look for the right source to sell their unwanted stuff. I used to sell them on eBay but now for old clothing, I give to the nearby school for their yearly fund raising exercise. I now started to COLLECT junk furniture that people throw away and recycle them into what I think is nice and useable. Sometimes my wife doesn’t think so and she’s worried I will start to clutter the house again! I suppose then, I will sell them on eBay!

      Ha ha, yeah, watch out for hoarding, Mazlan! Glad eBay’s worked out for you – it’s certainly good for smaller stuff like clothing.

  2. Hi Stephan, selling unused items is such a great idea for those suffering from disabilities and chronic illnesses! I think for one it provides some money and more importantly, it reduces the clutter around your house. Do you think it’s important to live in a clutter-free environment? Thanks!

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Hi there, well, I wouldn’t say it’s “important” per se, it really comes down to life-style choice. Minimalist living appeals to many people but it certainly isn’t for everybody.

    Very helpful article, I wish I had known all the information you share in this article when I had to sell most of my things to pay medical expenses.

    I sold my stuff way too cheap, I almost gave them away. If I had researched or read this article before I sold my stuff I would have earned much more.

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Hi Jeff, yes, medical expenses can certainly ruin you financially. What method(s) did you use to sell your stuff?

  4. My favorite part of your article is the breakdown list of where to sell items. That could come in handy when you have a whole household of items to sell. You offered a lot of very handy advice. It was also interesting how you took your post right into Wealthy Affiliate, which sounds a lot easier than trying to sell your “treasure”. Thanks for all the advice.

      Thanks Sue!

  5. Hi Stephan, Great site and valuable info. Everything covered. A great guide I can give to my dad. He has a lot of gear in his shed and on his hobby farm that he could sell. I am sure the info will help many people, disabled or otherwise that have some of their unwanted stuff they can sell. I live overseas and by the time I decide to go back home, I will need to clear some stock so to speak. Well done!

      Thanks John! Yes, I’d imagine a shed would have tons of stuff to sell…

    I have been stuck with lots of goods in my backyard not knowing where to sell them and how to determine the prices for them. But from the moment I came across your editions, I now know what steps to take. Thanks to the information that you have offered freely here online.

    Please keep me informed with any future updates on this.

    Cheers,

    Jose

      Will do Jose, thanks!

  7. What a great guide for selling! Especially the extensive list of where to sell, very useful. And you don’t have to limit yourself with just your unwanted stuff. Once you’ve sold all of your unwanted items and acquire a bit of experience, you could always look at buying and selling to continue building an income. Definitely an idea that could be built upon. Great article.

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Yup, there’s no reason why this can’t become a business onto itself, thanks…

  8. Very helpful information, statricks is a website I have never heard of and will definitely give it a try. I love how you listed all the different websites where you can sell things and which items to sell for each site. I have bookmarked your site so I can go back to it in the future. Thanks for all the great info!

      Thanks Gretchen!

  9. Hi Stephan,
    Fantastic article! My friend does a lot of upcycling with old furniture. He’s been looking for online outlets to sell but stuck with a lack of internet selling experience. Thanks to your post I’ll be able to share some store ideas with him.

    Have you any experience with Etsy?

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Thanks Dushan, nope, no personal experience with Etsy but a talk about it a bit here.

  10. Interesting article on how to earn money while disabled. I’ve never heard of this kind of strategy but if it works, that’s all that counts. I mean, it’s pretty crazy that one can earn around $1100 dollars each month doing this. It seems like a good way to start earning money. After all, why save stuff you don’t need?

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Thanks Victor

  11. Very thorough post on how to sell our used stuff. It’s amazing just how many options are available, and you’ve done a great job of breaking that information down in a manageable way. I am curious, though – why would you not price things at yard sales? Some people might be shy and would prefer to just know a price than have to engage or haggle or risk offending someone by lowball offers. I definitely understand not everyone is like this, but for me, seeing a written price is preferable. And I agree with the advice on Craigslist – always good to meet in public or at least outside your property if at all possible.

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Hi Penelope, to answer your question, sure, you can certainly price your things but then you run the risk of scaring off people if the price is too high. Perhaps it’s worth testing out both strategies to see which one works best.

  12. Dale Brunet says:

    Hi Stephan, I just came across your site while looking for ways my mother could make some extra cash. She’s on permanent disability and needs financial help. I have to say you offer something incredible! It’s all here, pricing, selling, even great tips on getting proper appraisals. You listed so many ways to sell and yet I only knew of eBay. She’s going to be so happy. Thank you so much!

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      You’re welcome Dale, thanks for visiting!

  13. Stephan, very informative and thorough site even for those not disabled. Several times we held yard sales to declutter our house, but for the next one this spring, we will consider some of your other options. Your listing of different ways to sell online is extensive and well researched. Thanks, Ed

      Thanks Ed.
