We’re only about two weeks away from Christmas. Have you already saved enough cash ready to celebrate the upcoming festivities? Because we all know that the holidays can be pretty pricey – décor, gift shopping, travels, back to back parties, and the list goes on and on.
If you haven’t beefed up your bank accounts yet in time for the holidays, well it’s time to generate cash as quick as possible. Sounds easy, but how?
Of course you can get a part time job, sell handmade goods or find freelance work online. However, these money making opportunities require time and effort. Sometimes, we need money fast and we need it right away.
Well, your best bet is to sell stuff – don’t worry, you don’t need to rummage through your great-grandmother’s china collection to make ends meet… just random stuff you can find from your own home.
Here are 6 of the easiest items to sell for quick cash:
The rarer the book, the higher the value. But don’t worry, there are lots of places to sell your used books, both online and in stores.

Most websites just require you to enter the ISBN of the book then get an instant price quote, vendor then have the payment sent through Paypal.
2. Vinyl Records

4. Gift Cards

5. Children’s Toys and Clothing
These things sell fast! You can even resell kids’ clothes and toys (especially those big ones like plastic play houses) on Facebook groups.
6. Sports Equipment
These also sell fast because it’s something that people usually prefer to buy second hand. You can also ysell our sports equipment on Facebook groups for a faster transanction.
