October's Money Challenge: Clean Out Your Closets for Cash

October's Money Challenge: Clean Out Your Closets for Cash
From Lifehacker - October 3, 2017

The end of the year is approaching quickly, and as we get closer to December, we want to focus on saving for the holidays. So this month, our challenge is simple: clean out your closets and make some extra cash while youre at it.

The purpose of this challenge is twofold. One: youll get rid of all the junk thats just been collecting dust in your closets. Two, youll earn some extra cash to pay for holiday expenses, from travel to parties to presents.

So schedule some time this month to go through your closets and gather all of your unwanted stuff, whether its an old phone youve been meaning to resell or a bunch of clothes you never, ever wear. Donate what you cant sell, then plan a garage sale or list your stuff on eBay, Craigslist, Amazon, or any of the many apps that let you flip your stuff for cash. (Tip: check out eBays completed listings to get an idea of what your item will go for).
