Want Extra Cash? Look Around You

Sometimes the best way to make money from home can be found right under your nose.

Totspot is a mom-to-mom mobile marketplace for buying and selling gently used or new children’s clothing.  Totspot users can list clothing items for sale in less than one minute, and all transactions are handled in-app.  Totspot then notifies the seller when their item is purchased.

For busy parents who don’t have the time to sell their outgrown children’s clothing on their own, they can have other mothers on Totspot do all of the work for them with the app’s new service, Totspot Concierge.  Some moms on Totspot’s online community currently make up to $1,000 per month selling clothing for other Totspot parents. 

Don’t have kids?  The company just introduced men and women’s fashion into its online marketplace, so you can sell that shirt you haven’t worn since the 90s. 

There are other, peer-to-peer marketplaces to make money off existing assets, whether it’s clothing, pets, even items around the house.

  • VarageSale is an online marketplace for families who want to sell their unwanted items to people in their neighborhoods. Once approved for a community, members can sell and buy everything from children’s clothing to cars at a fraction of the retail price. An added bonus: members meet and develop closer ties with their neighbors.
  • DogVacay lets pet lovers make extra money dog sitting a pooch or cat from the neighborhood. Once vetted, set a price and have fun for the weekend or even during the week, schedule permitting, with a loving pet. DogVacay also offers insurance, 24-hour support and other services that makes pet sitting easy and fun.
  • Tradesy helps women turn closet clutter into cash, allowing users to sell items clogging their closets by handling the transaction from the time a photo of the product is uploaded to its delivery to the purchaser’s door. Tradesy brings white glove customer service to the fashion resale space.
  • Everything But the House specializes in estate sales but its experts can also help you make money off collectibles, antiques and other speciality items, from appraising to delivering the items to the winning bidder.
