There are different portals to sell your old products, but try selling your product on one which is offering more money. However, before you post your ads you need to compare different websites and their genuineness.
Earn Money from Your Savings
If you are able to save some money, your saved money can work for you and give you more money. This sounds a bit weird but is completely true. This can be achieved by keeping your money in a savings account or using your saved money for making investments. Regular savings account in India offers you an interest rate of 7-8% annually and if you have a fixed deposit for your saved money, you can even earn more. Doing this is worth inflammation as well, this is because what you are saving now will be much more than that after 10 years.
So, for that reason, you should always try to keep as much of your spare money as possible in a savings or fixed deposit account with the highest interest. If not you can open an RD account and put your saved amount in that monthly.
Use Credit Cards
Credits cards charge a huge interest rate, this everyone knows. But do you know – using credit cards can earn you money? Yes, you read it right.

For example- if you are a frequent shopper then you should go with a credit card that offers maximum benefit on shopping or selecting a travel or lifestyle credit card if you travel frequently. Using your credit cards provides you with different offers, rewards and even cash backs. So, try using your credit cards, pay the bill on time, and avail of the benefits.
