Collect together a load of items which have no value to you, and sell them as a 'Lot for Car Booters'. One person's junk is another person's treasure. You will make money from items of no use to you, and someone else will also be able to profit.

Lots of us have old mobile phones kicking about, which companies like Envirofones will buy. There is usually only a few quid to be made, but it is really simple to do and a good way to make money from recycling.

Put items you don't want on free classifieds sites, it only takes a little time but someone might be looking for what you have to offer. Use Kijiji and Craigslist, 2 of the larger sites with thousands of visitors a day.
