Sorry, but these 'collectibles' are actually worthless clutter

Cheapism Logo By Mary Shustack of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 31: A $35,000 copy of "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" or the Beatles' "White Album"? Some records may be worth something, but even with vinyl having a renaissance, no long-neglected albums from junior high are likely to finance the next generation's college tuition. Most newbies are simply buying re-issues and contemporary releases, and veteran collectors want pristine original pressings. The most valuable albums are rare and ideally kept in climate-controlled, dust-free storage. Otherwise, expect pennies on the dollar. Quick Cash Tip: Clear out those boxes of dusty CDs and score some quick cash. Sites such as Decluttr offer cash for CDs, DVDs, and videogames. Related: Decluttering Projects You Can Easily Tackle in Less Than 30 Minutes
