7) Recycle and Repurpose
Junk can come in handy for folks who are crafty. Old jacket buttons, bottle caps and even vintage wine corks can be recycled and repurposed. You’ve seen coffee tables made from pallets and popsicle sticks. You’ve seen lamps made from glass bottles. A lot of junk can hold sentimental value or be hard to come by, but it is often useless unless turned into something new. By creating new junk with old junk you just might be able to sell it for a pretty penny. Got an old uprooted tree stump in your backyard? Turn it into a marble top night stand and sell it for a few hundred dollars. Repurposing items is relatively easy if you have the tools and motivation to do so.
