Thankfully, years of hoarding are now paying off for me and as I wanted to clear out anyway this is definitely killing two birds with one stone. I keep turning up all sorts of hidden gems that are keeping my landlord happy and food in my fridge.

I've actually seen these sorts of listings on ebay as well. I don't know if sellers are making much money but how easy is this???? I am ALMOST tempted to do it. Hell, I WOULD do it. I've actually checked out craiglist and it's loaded with adverts for 'used underwear for sale'. Clearly this is not an unusual way of making a quick buck.
And then there are lists like this. From barbeques to parking spaces anything goes. People are even renting out their possessions. But hang on, haven't they been doing that in London for some time now? Yes they have, and here's the proof. For £12.50 a day you can rent a private drive way in Victoria, London - for example.

Once I have exhausted my stash of saleable items I'm not sure what to try out next. I have a lot of books, but I kind of need them for the foreseeable future and there's no money to be made in selling my clothes on ebay.
Perhaps I will work as a phone sex chat line operator or start a dog walking service or become a house sitter? Now there's a good idea. If I could set enough of those up, I might not even need a place to live. The mind boggles.......
