There are times when we may be in need of quick money and want to sell some of our stuff. This article listed the things which we can easily sell without feeling the burden.
Once Nigerians are in need of money, the next thing that comes to their mind is to sell their car, house, or electronics. Although it all depends on the amount of money needed and the urgency.
All the same, it is never advisable to sell something that is still very useful to you or your household, else you may have to drip some sweat just to replace it.
The list may not “break to bank” for you, but it will surely give you some extra cash. Most importantly, you won’t feel the brunt of what you are selling, renting, or giving out in exchange.
Things to sell to make extra money
1. Your kids’ old toys, clothing, and shoes
Sell off your children’s old clothes, shoes, and toys, if you are done having kids. That I don’t think they will ever be important to you.
Of what essence will it keep your kids old stuff. If you decide to keep it for no reason, with time, it will be outdated and lose its value.
You can choose to give it out to charity or sell it off to those who are ready to pay for it.
2. Old mobile phone
An average Nigerian changes their phone at least every two years. If you have a new and the old phone is still in good condition, just sell it off.
If you refuse to spell it out, give it out, technology trend you soon make it lost the value, or even damage over time.
For instance, imagine a mobile phone that was abandoned five tears ago; what will be its present value?
3. Clothes and shoes that don’t fit you anymore
If you don’t like the clothes anymore, why keep them? The answer to this question will assist you further.
Personally, I don’t see a reason why your closet should be filled with outfits you do wear again.
4. Rent out spare rooms or boys’ quarters in your house
If you have a house of your own, and some of the room or the boy’s quarter is not occupied, you may choose to rent them out for a short period of time and get some money from the tenant.
No doubt, this may be inconvenient, but it’s better than selling what you may end up regretting.
5. Sell Your Old Electronics
Everyone loves to have the most recent technology, especially when it has to do with electronics.
After buying new electronics, don’t just pack the old ones in your store. As long as they are no longer useful, simply sell them off and make some money from it. If you don’t, with time, it will lose its value.
6. Sell your old books
If you were a scholar that kept your books in a safe place, then you must have lots of expensive textbooks.
You can sell those you sure won’t be relevant to you any longer in exchange for some money when you are in need.

Blood is something given to us by our creator for free. I personally don’t support selling your blood for money.
But for information’s sake, some people still sell theirs for a huge sum of money, especially the universal donor (O-) blood type.
9. Business Ideas
If you have some sort of business ideas you have done, and have plans to venture into, you can decide to sell it to those who are in need of it.
