4 ways to get cash for your junk
Admit it: You have too much stuff, whether clothes spill out of closets, toys fill your basement or you can't actually park your car in the garage. You're not alone. Americans spend $20 billion per year on storage units, according to the National Storage Association.
If you're sick of the mess, or want to stop spending money to store stuff you don't use, sell your junk.
"There is no use holding onto things that could instead put money in your pocket. The longer you hold on to things, the more their value depreciates and the longer you are left maintaining it," says Cristin Frank, founder of The Eve of Reduction, a company that helps people reduce waste, debt and consumption.
Don't just dump your stuff on the curb for the next garbage pickup. Consider these four ways to turn your clutter into cash.
