Make Money Before Christmas by: Selling Your Stuff Online
In the first method we posted on holding a Yard Sale, they can be a quick and easy way to make some extra cash if you don't mind departing with them. But you may be able to get more for those same items if you sell them online instead.
2. Sell Your Stuff Online.
Things like CD's or DVD's (Bluerays in particular) can often sell for more online than if you sold them at a Yard Sale. And especially collectible stuff like Star Wars toys and other memorabilia which you can often find selling on sites like eBay for a nice price.
The best thing to do is check on eBay first for the item you want to sell. Then sort the filter options to show "Sold/Completed listings". This will give you an idea of what they are generally selling at. You'll have to pay eBay a listing fee and final valuation fee. And of course, there's also the PayPal fee if you accept payments by PayPal.
However, I know of a trick to get up to 100 free eBay listing and sometimes with 50% off final valuation fees. The way it works is every now and then, eBay send out promotional emails to their users that offer them 100 free eBay listings with 50% off or something on the final evaluation fees.
eBay usually send these offers out during the run up to Christmas (and especially after). So you can take advantage of it and get free eBay listings!
Also, they also offer "only pay when you sell" listings too. So if your item doesn't sell, you don't have to pay a single penny to eBay in any fees!
Alternatively, you can also list a lot of stuff for sale on places like Craigslist and those local Facebook buy/sell groups as well. Those Facebook buy/sell groups are great places to list and sell stuff for free and usually have a lot of people using them.
If you find a local one for your area, the people that are using it wont have to travel to far to you to come and buy that item from you. So all you have to do is advertise it!
And since it only takes a few minutes to create a quick auction on eBay using eBay mobile. All you have to do is take a picture of it and add a small description and it's then out there. You might be surprised but the more you list, the more you'll sell!
