Spring is in full bloom and I’m sure many of you have already started cleaning out your unwanted items. While donating is always an easy option, why not gather up the best of your unused goods and sell them for some extra money?

Like millions of other Americans, I’ve spent way too much time and money buying things I don’t really need, and as a result, I’ve accumulated tons of items I no longer want. I even opened an eBay store just to get rid of my stuff. Thankfully, I’ve curbed much of my frivolous spending, but in the process, learned a thing or two about selling used items.

Also, the team at MyBankTracker is in the midst of our current Money Challenge, in which we will attempt to sell the goods we no longer use. We plan on using popular selling sites like Craigslist and eBay, as well as other selling tools such as Yardsale (the app).

If you’ve been procrastinating but want to get started on cleaning out your attic or garage, click through our slideshow and discover the the easiest ways to sell your stuff and make some extra dough.

Don’t forget to comment here for a chance to win a $50 AMEX gift card, and let us know the results of your spring cleaning!
