Everything else

No valuable classics in your shelves? Just run-of-the mill books and toys that would fetch a few bucks at a garage sale? Naturally, you can host that garage sale — or give the stuff to charity and take a tax write-off. Or you can do the online equivalent and list it for sale on Nextdoor. This sites allows neighbors to communicate and offer personal items for sale. Learn more about Nextdoor here.
