Need money - Clean your house

November 29th, 2009 at 03:28 pm

All 3 of us got on a cleaning binge this weekend. As has happened before, that has resulted in me listing some items on ebay. Yesterday, my wife came across a book/CD set from a work seminar. An identical set sold last week for $22.50 so I listed her set.

Today, my daughter unearthed her Game Boy Advance. I searched and they have been selling for $20-$30 for the player alone and DD also has a lighted grip thing that should add a few dollars to the value, so I listed that.

In the process, I also listed 5 other items that I didn't find due to cleaning but it put me in the mood to unload some things.

So I've listed 7 items in 2 days. Three items already have bids and I know from experience that most bids happen on the final day so I'm sure some of the others will sell, too. So cleaning the house may bring in $50-$100 in sales if we're lucky.

    Listing things we don't need/want on eBay is a great way to earn some extra $$...

    I was planning to learn how to list on Ebay in 2009 but I never got around to it. Maybe 2010 will be the year.

    One of the last times this happened, we found a $100 restaurant gift card that we had gotten as a gift to a restaurant we don't like. I listed it on ebay and sold it for just over $99.

    You never know how much money could be lurking in your drawers and closets.

    Analise, listing on ebay is quite easy. It can be kind of time-consuming especially the first few times you do it until you get the hang of it, but it is well worth it.
