Here's a few more ideas I had to raise a little cash for Christmas gift-giving.
Sell your used infant and children's clothes, gear, toys, and maternity clothes at a re-sale shop such as:
Once Upon a Child
The Growing Years
Bring your spare change to a Coinstar machine- no fee when you choose a gift card instead of cash.
Check out Caregivers Marketplace- a cash back program for anyone who gets, gives, or needs care. If you buy Huggies diapers or many other products- you can get a cash rebate back by mail.
Finally, consider donating your old clothes and household items to charity. Here are some guidelines from Goodwill for what you can claim on your taxes if you itemize.
