Setting yourself a budget helps plan your spending activities, plus keeps a log of everything you buy.
But budgeting isn’t the only solution.
Selling is another way to feed your bank balance.
This blog post will explain a few ways in which you can sell your way back into credit.
Women always seem to have more clothes and jewelry than men. This is a great advantage when it comes to selling items.
Women will often buy clothes or accessories either on impulse or because it is the height of fashion at the time. However, after a few months, the clothes go out of fashion, while the jewelry they bought has only been worn once or twice. This is the opportunity you should seize upon.
You could sell your jewelry at a flea market, garage sale, or on eBay. Alternatively, you could check the value of your gold or silver on sites like Bullionvault, to see if the value has increased; now could be the time to sell it and get some cash.
When you upgrade to a new mobile handset, you are left with your old phone. Many recycling companies or second hand shops will take your phone and pay you for the service. Depending on the model, how old it is and its condition, will affect its reward.
A new phone, in good condition will be worth much more than an old phone which has been battered and bruised. Second hand electronic stores will also take old CD’s, DVD’s and games consoles. The same condition applies as it does to the phones. These shops also make great places to find a bargain, especially if there is a really old film you have an urge to watch; you may find it for just a dollar or two.
Bidding sites such as eBay are perfect if you want to sell something bigger, like an unused dining table, a computer or even a fireplace. Sites like this are hit or miss.
Something which may not be worth much to you, like a signed CD from an artist you don’t know or like, could be worth a fortune to an avid fan.
