Kijiji invites Torontonians to chisel their way to up to $1,037 in free cash

Kijiji, Canada’s largest online classifieds site, recently released its third annual Second-Hand Economy (SHE) Index today, which reveals Canadians’ second-hand practices including buying, selling, swapping, renting and donating previously used items. Saving and earning extra cash are among top motivators to take part in the second-hand economy and this year’s report found Canadians earned an average of $1,037 from second-hand sales, while buyers of second-hand goods saved an average of $843 in 2016 (up considerably from $480 in 2015)!

On Thursday, March 16, Kijiji invites Torontonians to chisel their way to up to $1,037 in free cash, representing how much you could pocket by selling items you no longer need.

What:
