Squishmallows

Squishmallows are a trendy stuffed animal toy, and Five Below is one of the most popular places to buy them new.

There’s an avid Squishmallow collecting community, with some reselling for as much as $1,299.99.

You can get them now at Five Below for just $5 to $5.95. Wait a bit for the toy to go out of production and become a collector’s item, and you’ll make an easy profit.

Kitchen gear

Kitchen gear and tech can be expensive at big box stores or online retailers, and second-hand kitchen electronics aren't always reliable or safe.

If you want to make money reselling something from Five Below, buy one of their portable blenders for just $10.

A similar model sells for around $17 from major name brands. You can resell the blender for just a few dollars more and still be cheaper than the name-brand item.

Collector’s items

Five Below will sometimes sell collector’s items, which can be held onto to accrue more value and resold later for a profit.

For example, they sell a “Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild” collector’s box for $25. However, that box could be worth much more in a few years.

Get a protection plan on all your appliances

Did you know if your air conditioner stops working, your homeowner’s insurance won’t cover it? Same with plumbing, electrical issues, appliances, and more.

Whether or not you’re a new homeowner, a home warranty from Choice Home Warranty could pick up the slack where insurance falls short and protect you against surprise expenses. If a covered system in your home breaks, you can call their hotline 24/7 to get it repaired.

For a limited time, you can get your first month free with a Single Payment home warranty plan.

Pet supplies

Pets are expensive, from food to vet bills to accessories. Five Below sells pet supplies at bargain prices that could be resold for a little more while still competing with popular brands.

For example, Five Below sells a pet carrier for $15, compared to a similar one for $24. They also sell a small pet bed for $12, compared to a similar bed for $25.

Toys

Some toys sold at Five Below are incredibly valuable, even if not collectible or rare.

For example, the bargain store sells the Sweet Raspberry Home kit from Calico Critters for only $20. This same kit currently retails around $70 at other retailers.

School/office supplies

Office and school supplies are expensive on their own, but getting all of them at once can be a real financial strain.

Five Below sells individual office supplies for relatively cheap, like a 10-pack of pens for $2.25 or four erasers for just $1, plus notebooks and other products.

Instead of reselling them all individually, you could package the office supplies into affordable bundles while making a profit.

Candy and snacks

The retailer sells giant bags of candy — like a nearly 2-pound bag of Airheads for just $5 — and $5 giant candy tubes. They also sell a variety of trendy snacks.

Instead of reselling them individually, package them together for a decent deal while still making a profit.

Ceramics

Five Below is known for selling trendy home decor, but it also has some timeless pieces, like ceramics, that may have resale value.

The store sells a ceramic planter shaped and painted to look like a strawberry for just $5.55. An almost identical planter sells online for $20, making it an easy upsell.

Fitness and sports equipment

Sporting gear and fitness equipment are costly, but buying used equipment can be a little iffy for those wanting a better deal.

Five Below sells a variety of items, like trendy printed yoga mats, for just $5.95. A similar yoga mat retails online for $37.

Simply resell the Five Below mat and other gear still in the packaging for slightly more but less than competitor prices.

Books

There are two ways to make money with books at Five Below. Similar to food and office supplies, you could bundle journals, puzzle books, and so on while keeping prices low.

However, you could also make money by reselling popular books at a used bookstore. Five Below sells popular titles for just $5, while publishers sell them for full price — as much as $15.

Bottom line
