10 Awesome Ways to Sell Your Stuff Online.
As a single mom, it can feel like there’s never enough money to cover everything that we need to cover in a month. And we’d all have to admit that we’ve managed to ‘collect’ more than our fair share of crap, thanks in large part to our children.
I remember when my kids were little, there was so much stuff that just seemed to grow from year to year; bikes, roller blades, video games, sporting equipment…you name it, I had it all, sitting in my garage waiting for the day when I could sell every piece of it 🙂
That day came much more quickly than I realized it would, but when it did, I was totally ready.
I have to admit, that I was a bit excited at the thought of freeing up the space that all of this stuff was occupying.
Truth be told, getting rid of all of that stuff felt like someone lifted an elephant off of my chest. It felt like I was getting a new beginning.
Anywho…enough of my blabbering.
When it comes to selling your stuff online, most people automatically think of the usual outlets; Craigslist, ebay, Facebook Marketplace, etc.
Those are all still great options. I found Craigslist to be an invaluable way to sell my stuff, and get money in my hands right away.
Selling unwanted stuff is one of the easiest ways to start saving some money.
I love selling my stuff on Craigslist, but it didn’t make my list of 10 Awesome Ways to Sell Your Stuff Online, because people go on there looking for a DEAL, which isn’t a problem, but when I use the term “deal”, I mean they want your shit for nearly nothing.
So if you’ve got stuff that’s particularly valuable to you, Craigslist isn’t the way to sell it, unless you enjoy haggling with strangers over your stuff.
Anywho…This list also includes some of the apps that I’ve used to sell stuff. I love being able to do everything on my phone when it comes to doing just about anything. Selling my crap is no exception.
