9) Trade In
When you can’t seem to sell your junk for cold hard cash, then you might consider trading in for something of better value that could ultimately be of use. Old instruments can be traded for store credit at both local and corporate guitar shops.
If you have a dusty amplifier and a guitar that just needs a little tender loving care, then you might be able to trade them in for the brand new synthesizer you’ve been eyeballing for the past year. Another great category for trading in to upgrade your old stuff is sporting goods. Want to get a new set of golf clubs? Did your kids grow out of their starter baseball or football equipment? Trade it in for the next size up. You are saving money and probably helping someone out.
