Feeling overwhelmed by clutter, or looking for a little extra cash post Christmas? Selling on unwanted items is a win-win for all concerned – you get money and space, and help to tackle the UK’s growing waste problem. As a nation, we throw out approximately £400,000-worth of wearable clothing every day, which equates to 7 tonnes every 10 minutes. But don’t stop at your wardrobe – everything from your kids’ old toys to a broken TV set could turn you a profit!

The idea of sorting through and selling your unwanted stuff might seem daunting, but we’re here to help. Although it may require work, it could be extremely rewarding and lucrative in the end…
