Facebook marketplace and Gumtree are obvious ones.
There are also countless amounts of apps like Schpok.
These are great because generally the collection of the item is down to the buyer so you don’t have to faff about packaging items up & trekking to the post office. You might not reach as wide-an-audience, however for some items, maybe ones that are large or weigh a lot, that isn’t a bad thing as local folk can collect easily.
Have a look around you house now and find five things hat you haven’t used in the last year. Get them sold and free up some space and earn some cash for Christmas.
