I did a google search today for "the easiest money you'll ever make online" and found quite a few great ideas and opportunities. Thank you Google! Google never lets me down in that respect. In this article, I'll share with you one of the best ideas I stumbled on through my research that may be obvious but that very few of us actually act on. In the coming weeks, I'll add to this article, as I act on this idea that might just be the easiest way to make money online.
So what is the easiest way to make money online? From my research, I've come to the conclusion that one of the easiest ways to make money online if not THE easiest way to make money online is eBay. You may be wondering what I mean. Here's the idea in a nutshell: we all have tons of stuff from our past that's just collecting dust and losing value that we could easily sell on eBay. This idea has been around for ages now but how many of us have really tried it? You may think it's not worth it because you just won't make any decent money. Well, the website that reminded me of this idea today claimed that he found 17 things lying around his home that he no longer used or needed and listed them all on eBay. Out of those 17 things, 14 sold and netted him over $500!!!
That's an easy $500 right there. Sure, he explained, you're going to have to take pictures of this stuff and write a description and post it on eBay but wouldn't you work at it for a measly couple of hours if it meant $500 for you? I know I would. The beauty with eBay is that you could sell just about anything on there. I scoured through my own home to find things I no longer use that might be worth money and here's what I found that I intend on listing on eBay in upcoming days/weeks:
1. Hundreds of hockey cards from the 90s!!! Probably worth hundreds of dollars in and of themselves. I remember having a couple of gems in my old hockey card collection that could be worth a lot of money on their own.
2. An AbSlide I barely ever used! Could be an easy 20$, don't you think? It's still in great condition.
3. Books, books, and more books! I have 25-50 books that are just collecting dust that I could sell on eBay for a buck a piece. Maybe more, maybe less. I'd have to research what books go for on there these days.
4. A sega dreamcast. I have a suspicion that it might have become somewhat of a novelty item over the years. I don't know if it's worth anything but if I find all the right wires needed to use the thing, I might make a couple of bucks off of something that would otherwise be thrown in the garbage.
These are just some of the things I found laying around my house that I could easily list on eBay. They may not all sell but it's still worth a shot!
God knows I could use an extra couple of hundred bucks for the holidays! I have a big family and a lot of gifts I need to buy!!!
I hope at least 1 person gets inspired by this article to list their own unused objects on eBay and please leave me a comment on here with your results when you do!
PS. Stay tuned for updates on this article when I will share my own results with this method.
