Clearing your clutter pays!

Extra stuff sold on second hand earned the average Brit £106.15 last year according to research by thinkmoney.

Two thirds of adults in the UK sold their unwanted items online (eBay or Amazon), at car boot sales or through small ads in local papers, and mobile phone recycling websites and one in five said they raised £101-250.

CDs and DVDs were sold the most (38 per cent) followed by books (35 per cent), clothes (28 per cent) and old mobile phones (26 per cent), as well as unwanted gifts (26 per cent).

However, plenty of people gave their things away to charity shops, friends and family, particularly books (61 per cent), clothes (59 per cent), CDs and DVDs (43 per cent) and toys (39 per cent).

How often do you sell or give away things and how do you do it?
