Over the past 6 months, I have been selling books, CD and a few DVD on Amazon. I am not making a huge amount of money, but since many of the books were received at little or no cost, it has helped us a bit with spending money. I think I have made over $350 minus the cost of shipping which has enabled us to eat out and have a bit of fun while trying to get ourselves out of debt. I know there are more things I " could" sell, but I am not sure I have the time to photograph them and get them set up on either ebay or craig's list. Since a few of the things are furniture or vintage large pieces of furniture, craig's list which is free and local is the way to go, but I still have to prep everything. All I know is that it would help us money wise, but it would also be great to have a chance to get rid of things that take up space. I sometimes buy DVD or CD and then realize I don't NEED them (which is easier to discover than. . .) or WANT them. So, I intend to clean house again and see if I can sell more things. . .
If I had a flea market close, I would probably go and sell fairly often but I hate yard sales cause its so much bother when there are few who stop. At markets however, more people usually means more sales. I am also trying hard to avoid buying more when I don't NEED OR WANT.
On that thought, though, I do need (OK, want) some new jeans and just can't seem to find the time to get to the stores I want to explore and try on some new jeans. I have not bought myself a pair in about 5 years. . .I usually do prefer to wear skirts or khakis but sometimes you just NEED jeans.. . .LOL
