Selling stuff on eBay has been a lifesaver for me. I sold off everything I could get by without. I managed to find ways to get money out of a lot of things I might have otherwise thrown away. Anything electronic, including old remote controls and power adapters, an old vcr, a desktop calculator, old phones, cameras, MP3 players, etc all sell. Old toys, collectibles, small appliances, tools, any unopened bottles of cleaners, old clothes and a lot of other things sell too. Think about how much you spent obtaining all the stuff you own. It’s valuable to someone else too.
I actually didn’t even look for a job for about year after one job ended because I learned how much certain things were worth and how to find them cheaply, or items that people would give me because the didn’t want to learn how to sell stuff on eBay to sell just one item. Sometimes I would split the proceeds.
There is a leaning curve and isn’t for everyone, but it worked for me.
