  • Dig up your unused gift cards, and sell them on sites like CardKangaroo and Raise. On the former, for example, you could net about $15 for sending in a $25 iTunes gift card. 

  • Sell your photos on sites like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, iStock or Getty Images. Depending on the site's starting royalty rates, you could earn 15 to 33 percent per photo.

  • Instead of keeping old smartphones and laptops in a drawer, sell your devices on sites like Decluttr and Gazelle. For example, a 256-gigabyte iPhone 8 Plus could earn you between $200 and $420 on Decluttr, depending on your carrier.
