EBAY

List old video games, too-small clothes, textbooks, rejected Christmas gifts – literally anything you’ve got laying around.

POSHMARK

At the start of every new season, go through all your old clothes and if you didn’t wear it last year, it’s time to go.

Then wait for someone to bid. Easy!

Brands will pay you to post photos of their products, which is how all those famous bloggers make money.
