It’s not uncommon to start off the new year with the urge to declutter your space, and purge unwanted items. In fact, I think it’s a great idea to rid yourself of unwanted and unused items that are taking up space in your home. But, if you’re going to go to all the work of sorting through your things, most of which probably have value, you might as well try to make a little money on the side while you’re at it. There are numerous websites that you can utilize to sell your unused items, and below I’ve listed a few of the most popular.
Selling on Craigslist is very simple, and you can list just about any item on Craigslist, too. Craigslist is a great option for large items as you don’t have to worry about shipping costs. The most commonly sold items on Craigslist are cars, furniture, real estate, baby and children’s items, and event tickets. Craigslist is a free service, so you don’t have to worry about paying a fee to sell your stuff. However, after you list your item for sale you are responsible for responding to inquiries and setting up the transaction details yourself. The ease and convenience of Craigslist makes up for any odd or awkward moments you may encounter while making a deal.
