Silver may not be gold, but it is still worth money. That fancy set of silver that never gets used, but needs to get polished could be turned into money in your pocket. Most online appraisers will want you to send in the set before they quote you a price, so you may want to look for a brick and mortar buyer close to your home.

There are stores that will give you cash or trade value for your used vinyl and CDs. Some will also buy your DVDs and BlueRay Movies. I feel like a bandit when I sell CDs because I download the music to my computer before I sell it, so that I can have my music and get some money too.

Recycling 4

When I was a kid I used to collect cans, crush them, fill huge bags with them and then make my mother drive me to the recycling center. She let me keep all of the money and it was awesome. Lots of things have changed since I was a child, but you can still make money recycling and help preserve the environment while you are at it.

You know all those over-priced "vintage" stores that hipsters frequent? Where do you think they get their inventory? From people like you who go in and sell them used clothes. Yes, they can be snobby and are most definitely picky, but I've made lots of money this way. I take anything I think is in good enough shape to be re-sold and whatever they don't take, I donate to a charitable thrift store.
