“The longer you’re not taking action the more money you’re losing.” Carrie Wilkerson
One of best lessons I learned from being broke and needing money was to open my eyes and look around me. From my experience needing money my mind opened in this short but sweet post I going to tell you 3 ways you are losing money because your eyes and mind are most likely closed.
1. Ebay.com has over 59 million visitors per month and ebay.co.uk ranks number 7 as the most visited website according to alexa. Look at the things you have accumulated over the years ask yourself? “do I really need all of this” if the answer is no you can always do what I did. I made two piles 1 for charity and the other for items I planned to sell on eBay. Take pictures describe the item in as much detail especially the condition it’s in. We all know children grow very fast and outgrow their clothing very quickly why not make some extra cash selling those items.
2. I had accumulated so many books when I was studying for a number of reasons I did not like to borrow the library books because I could not write and highlight relevant section in them some of these books were expensive and in good condition baring all the post-it notes I had placed. A relative told me about an online website that bought books ww.webuybooks.co.uk I downloaded the app signed up for an account and simply scanned the barcodes packaged up the books and a courier that they pay for came and collected the parcels within a week the money was in my account. I’ll also add that as you scan the barcode it tells you how much you will get for each book, cool right?
3. The 3rd final items our family was losing a lot of money on was video games there’s always the latest must-have game or games console that the children just have to have in their lives. Yes you got it they eagerly awaited game finished it in a matter of days or maybe weeks and it on the shelf gathering dust. Well I got my sons to sort through all the games and consoles they no longer wanted and we carried them down to CEX at the time we did it you could get the cash or exchange for items within the shop.
