So, here on Junk Jitsu, we’ve talked a lot about the fact that you can get rid of a lot of cool items in your home and end up getting a financial benefit from it. Decluttering can, at times, end up being really beneficial to our wallets in the long run. So of course, the question is, what can you end up pawning off?
Musical Instruments. It sounds really random, but musical instruments are a big deal in the pawning world. They were likely a bit pricey if and when you bought it new, and depending on how old it is, it could be worth a pretty penny now. You want to make sure that it’s in good condition, because if the pawn shop would have to refurbish the item to make it pawnable, you’ll get a lot less out of it than you would otherwise.
Tools. If you’re like me, then you’ve got lots of random tools, all over and around your home. There are so many different things that you get over the years, and honestly, you know that you aren’t using all of them. In some cases, you haven’t ever used some of them (that’s not true for me, thankfully). Go through all of your tools. Tools do really well in pawn shops because a lot of tool collectors will try and find nice tools for a cheap price. Or, if they’re looking for a piece of a set, the item you pawned off may be what they’re looking for. You can get rid of a lot of tools and get a nice chunk of change out of it.
DVD’s/Movies/Music. People collect these items. Some people love to collect old VHS tapes, so if you have those sitting around and you aren’t using them, you should be able to pawn them off to a pawn store pretty easily. Even more modern DVD’s can be sold for a decent price, depending on what it is. Music – especially if they’re in the form of records or other hard to find types of music storage from the past – can be incredibly lucrative as well. Pawn shops will buy a lot of those, especially if they are harder to find items or they are unique.
