Sell Old DVDs, CDs & Video Games for Cash!

Some of us have tons of stuff maybe just lying around in one corner or stashed in the store room which haven’t seen daylight for a long time now. Well, those stuff either you have no use at all but simply can’t throw them because of treasured memories OR you have more than you can display .

Not that you are a hoarder but some things are meant to be kept, so you keep it without realizing that overtime, they will pile up and consume a lot of space/s in your house.

Nintendo Games

So, what do you do?

Let’s take the case of old compact discs and Nintendo video games that you have accumulated back when they were selling like hotcakes and in trend. Geesh, technology has moved on to more high-tech gadgets like tablets and blu-rays and you are still clinging on to the old generation inventions. Worst is, you’re not even using them anymore!

If you can let go of old memories and create new ones with your family, then why not explore the idea of selling them in exchange for cold hard cash?

People are doing it and there’s no shame in doing it yourself. In these times of calamities and recessions, we all need money for future expenses, right? We need to be practical besides, you can use those extra soon to be vacated spaces for something more useful. This will also get rid of all dust and allergy causing germs that has accumulated together with your old items. A neat house is what we need these days to avoid trips to the doctor or paying hospital bills.

Where to sell them?

Selling them will be easy-peasy as long as the items are still working and can be used. There are lots of collectors out there to sell them to but of course the cash equivalent depends on the quality and condition of the items. There’s nothing to it if they are defective or badly damaged but the trashcan in the backyard will be happy to take them.

You can also sell them online. You will have to search Google for legit websites that buy these old stuff. I’m sure there are hundreds of search results where you can sell Old DVDs, CDs & Video Games. Though you have to be very careful as there are many scams out there.

If you are really keen on getting rid of your old stuff and turning them into green bucks, you better start rummaging your store room now while there are still interested buyers. But leave those which you really cannot part with and some things that hold the most important memories in your lives. But be wary and be practical, for you might end up keeping all of them still.
