2. Sell your books
This point is similar to the DVD and clothes suggestion. Selling your possessions to make ends meet may feel a bit degrading. It might make you feel like you are in dire straits. But everybody has a rough stretch at some point; it’s just the way the world works.
Don’t be ashamed of yourself. Approach it as an opportunity to declutter your home. We all have a lot of nonsense lying around that could be of more use to someone else.
When it comes to books, you won’t get anything close to what you paid for them. But, if your collection is sizeable and of good quality, settling them may be worth it.
The best place to start is a local bookstore. They may be willing to take those books off your hands. If that doesn’t work, try the internet. There are a couple of buyback options to investigate. Doing this online can sometimes wind up being a lengthy process, but it could get you that much closer to the end of the month.
