Woman reveals the simple act that netted her nearly $200

How your old DVDs can make you HUNDREDS: Mother makes $155 instantly by selling her movies – as others boost their savings with old phones, laptops and iPods

  • A woman has shared how decluttering one area of her home earned her $200
  • She shared it took very little effort to sell her unwanted household possessions 
  • The woman says had she asked for a store voucher, she would have gotten more 

If you’ve taken inspiration from Marie Kondo and have been decluttering your home at breakneck speed, chances are you’ve got a fair few items lying around.

Instead of ditching unwanted goods curbside or at a charity shop, with little effort it’s entirely possible to earn some cold hard cash.  

One savvy Australian woman recently took to Facebook to reveal how she recently netted almost $200 after selling a haul of unwanted DVDs.

‘We organised and culled most of our DVD collection, took them to a trade-in store and we got $155,’ she wrote on a post.

Further down the thread, the woman explained she had taken her unwanted DVDs to a CeX store in Canberra.

CeX stores are a chain of retail outlets which buy and sell electronics including digital devices, mobile phones, laptops and DVDs.

The woman added that had she asked for a store voucher instead of cash she would have received more than the $155 she was given.

‘I just started culling mine yesterday, but wasn’t sure how to get rid of them!’ One person wrote before adding, ‘Turns out there’s a local CeX store near me. I know where I am going tomorrow.’

Another said they had no idea they could sell unwanted DVDs and had instead opted to ditch theirs by the curb.

‘I recently put out a tub of a couple of hundred DVDs out front because I can’t be bothered with all the time wasters selling them. I have a CeX 10 minutes away.’

A third cannily worked out the woman’s sale of the DVDs came to the equivalent of a year’s Netflix subscription.

The woman also fielded questions about how much money the store offered her per DVD.

‘Depends on the DVD,’ she replied. ‘I got 5c for some and $4 or so for others.’
