Clean out your home and make extra cash

With gift opening done for the holidays, if you have kids, you probably have extra toys and clothes around the house.

Since your kids have new things, now is your chance to get rid of the old and make some money to pay off those holiday bills.

Kids Exchange is one of the biggest consignment sales held twice a year at the state fairgrounds in Raleigh. More than 20,000 people shop there for babies, kids and even teens.

Amy Winstead, one of the owners of the Kids Exchange, says it is good to get the kids involved.

“Give them a project, say these things are worth money even though you don’t need them anymore,” Winstead said. “It’s called recycling, get your kids in the playroom, say if you pull the toys out, you help me tag them. I’ll show you how to help me put them out at the sale, you can make half the money at the sale”

Sellers do make money. Winstead said the average check they cut after the sale is between $300 and $600 per seller.

The Kids Exchange is the third week in January. The event’s website explains the process of pricing your items, along with tagging them for the sale.
