Are you looking to buy a household item while trying to save on cash at the same time? Well.. one of the best ways to save your own budget is to shop second hand. However, not only are second hand marketplaces a benefit for those looking to cut their spend but they are also a great place for people to make some extra cash on items they no longer want!

 

Those looking to buy…

It’s not just those of us selling old items who are benefiting from the second-hand market. Bargain hunters trying to cut their spend by purchasing pre-loved household goods are saving a huge amount of money from deciding against buying brand new. According to Friday-Ad’s report, some of the most popular household items that users have managed secure on a budget include: Flat screen TV’s (with an average send price of just £61), Full sofa sets at around £161 (where you will be looking from at least £500 from most retailers) and even washing machines at an average of £104. Items within the leisure department have also proved to be common contender in the second-hand market. If your a gamer or your kids are desperate for a new games console, and you don’t want to fork out full price, many of us are giving these away for much less than half the price of what you’d fork out ‘brand new’. Items like the ‘Xbox One set’ on average sell for £97 on Friday-Ad. By saving this much on used items like these, think how much further your pennies will go!

Below shows some of our most popular items currently being sold on Friday-Ad what what they sell for on average.

Have you been wanting to declutter for years? Well it turns out there could also be large incentive to finally clear your unused items – you could be making lots of cash! We have compiled a list of the most wanted second hand items this year based on searches and purchases on Friday-Ad. It turns out plenty of these items a lot of us have laying around at home. Things like sofas, bikes, stereos and second hand beds are very popular which many of us are willing to buy ‘preloved’ over brand new nowadays. Not only this, but we found out that there are many collectors items such as books and memorabillia that are also highly sought-after. In addition, antiques are also extremely desirable and can sell for A LOT! On average, items within the ‘antiques and collectables’ section sell for £216 but there are items such as antique chinaware that are selling for up to £40,000! Believe it or not, but you may be sitting on a fortune without even realising!
