It’s the first day of spring! So why not get those things that you haven’t used from your attic or cupboards and get them sold? I asked Mark Borgman, Marketing Manager at Catawiki, an online auction service, to come up with five tips to make cash from items that may be lying around and gethering dust, wehreas they could be making you money.
Instead of clearing out your wardrobe or cashing in on your old mobile phone, why not take a look in your attic instead? There could be a plethora of items gathering dust in the loft that you had no idea might bring in some serious bang for your buck! Forget expensive wall art or antiques, your old Pokémon cards, comics or stamps just might make you a millionaire (or earn you …
So after reading a post on making money from loo roll on eBay, I started to have a hunt around and see what other old rubbish you can sell and make money on eBay.
Would you believe that these old odd socks went for £15.50 and they aren’t even new. Or that these white beauties that don’t even look clean went for £4.99 and the lister confirmed that this isn’t an adult material listing….eee yew!
Or what about these 8 long football socks which sold for £4.20. They are “from my own home – freshly laundered READY to wear ” according to the listing.
I am actually very excited about this opportunity as I have stacks of kids socks that are odd, though I am not sure that’d I’d want them.
I did some digging …

It’s an exciting time for me at the moment, as I am doing a refurb project on the side, so as well as my day job and kids, I am updating a house for rental. The house has been neglected for about 30 years, so the decor is very dated and the furniture is falling apart.
The cost of the refurb is high as a lot of building work needs to be done. I am avoiding too many shortcuts, but have persuaded the builder to repaint the kitchen cupboard doors rather than fit new doors, so that’s saving a grand. Will post before and after pics when I have them.
We are also repainting the house, removing an old bar that the previous owners put in, plastering and retiling, among the many other tasks we …
I got caught out on Monday when the post office told me that an eBay parcel I was sending would cost me over £8. I asked if I could repack it and the lady showed me the dimensions and I saved over £5 by just packing it in a flatter box.
On the Post Office website they have all the prices and dimensions, but I can’t find them in one place so I have decided to put them all here for you, so that you don’t get caught out like I did.…
Some well known brands also sell on eBay. Often they’ll be selling at the same price as in store, but there are also some well known retailers with eBay outlets that sell only discounted stock.
Let me know of ones you use in the comments below and in the meantime, here are the ones I was most impressed with:
“Great deals on refurbished Canon products, including digital & compact cameras, EF lenses, camcorders, printers, projectors & binoculars.”
“Retailing returned products and end of line stock at vastly discounted prices. All stock items are in perfect condition except where specified with details & photos of any defects.”
“Through this outlet we’re offering a selection of refurbished and end of line Dyson vacuum cleaners for you to purchase directly from us with …
Now I love to grab a bargain on eBay, but I don’t like to use use “my” money to do it.
So to pay for my eBay purchases, I also sell on eBay and at the moment I have 10 items listed as now is the perfect time to sell, especially as buyers are looking for presents.
I don’t like clutter (much) and try to rid myself of stuff that is lying idle in a cupboard somewhere on a regular basis…maybe once a week if I have the time. I could list anything between two and ten items. I mostly list from my phone as it’s quicker.
I search for other similar items in the completed items tab to determine the price at which I’ll sell.
Since July I have sold quite a lot …
I am a fan of eBay. Before buying anything online, I will see if I can get it on eBay. It’s even more enticing now that I can collect Nectar points for my purchases.
Recently, I picked up a brand new steam generator iron for £50 less than the cheapest online store, and that was Argos. The item has a guarantee card and arrived within a couple of days. I also recently bagged some Berghaus walking boots for £35 inc postage and package. They had been worn but were in fantastic condition (as good as new as far as I was concerned) and better than paying £115 for boots I will wear only a handful of times a year. I buy lots of other things and price is nearly always the reason I choose eBay.…
