I come from a long line of "Dejunkers". We are the people who constantly search our homes for items that have not been used in a while – and throw them away.
But when I married a graduate student and we were living on a marginal income, I realized that some of the things I'd thrown before were pretty valuable.
I've learned that some things are really worth selling instead of just carting them away. This enables me to earn and save money. In addition, it feels good to see things that I no longer have to take to a new home instead of the landfill.
Consider the following types of items that you may not have realized were worth anything – and learn about some of the best outlets.
