This post was sponsored by our partners at Keenee, a transparent, fully-insured marketplace for products & services.

How often do you find yourself questioning if it’s time to donate or sell an item in your home? Perhaps the item has gone unused for some time, or you purchased it for a specific project and you haven’t gotten around to using it again. If this is the case, you’re probably feeling a bit like you’ve wasted your resources, right? What if we told you that there is a way to make some extra cash on the items in your home that are collecting dust?

Download Keenee and list the items acquiring dust in your home for RENT! Keenee is a virtual marketplace for renting items to and from other community members. Like AirBnB but for “stuff”, Keenee allows for community members to list items for rent locally.

Items to rent with Keenee, table, chair, stroller, tools

Here are 5 items collecting dust in your home that could make you money!

Baby Equipment

We’ve all been there: unsure if it’s time to formally say goodbye to the highchair, the stroller, or the baby swing. Instead of getting rid of these items before you’re SURE, simply rent them through Keenee! Another mom will be so happy to use your item for a short time while she visits Boston or while she decides if she should purchase her own, and you’ll earn some passive income on an item that would otherwise be collecting dust.

Folding Tables + Chairs

You’ve got the folding table and chairs, and a neighbor needs them for a party! List yours on Keenee to make some extra cash while you aren’t using them. 


Is your garage overflowing with only sometimes-used tools and yard equipment? There is somebody local looking to rent what you own! 


We buy them with the best intentions in mind, but sometimes our bikes get stored away unused. If this is the case, rent them to community members who are trying to be more active or who have friends in town who would like to see the sights via bike!

Pop Up Canopy

New England weather is unpredictable, and so is the stock at many big box stores that sell canopies. List yours on Keenee to help a neighbor who might need coverage for an outdoor event or part!
