It can be fun to dump a bunch of stuff on the curb and watch your neighbors stroll by and stop to pick through the pile and collect some free loot -- unless of course no one wants your old castaways. Then it's a bit embarrassing waiting for the scornful shakes of the garbage men's heads come collection day.

But it can be even more enjoyable to get some cash for the clutter you no longer want around the house. There are lots of ways you can make money, depending on the items in question, how much you're hoping to get and how much effort you're willing to put into the project. Are you more of a quiet homebody, or are you big into vigorous haggling? Do you want the stuff gone as soon as possible, or are you willing to hold out for the best price you can get? Consider questions like these as you read through this list of 10 ways you can ditch clutter and earn some cash while doing it.
