Money Making Monday! Sell It!
We are always looking for some place to sell all of our old junk. I found this strip of money making tips on selling specific items in the June 18, 2010 issue of AllYou magazine.
Sell It-Get cash for your castoffs in a few easy steps
Books: Cash4books.net takes textbooks, novels, and other books. Type in the ISBNs, get a quote, then print out the prepaid shipping label. You're paid once the site receives your shipment.
Electronics: At gazelle.com or buymytronics.com, describe the gadget you want to sell, then receive an instant quote. The sites pay for shipping and wipe out your personal data. RadioShack has a similar deal; for details, click on "Trade & Save Program" at radioshack.com.
Cell Phones: Select the manufacturer and model at cellforcash.com to find out how much money you can get for your retired phone.
Jewelry: Still have baubles from a former fling? Pay $2 to post them for sale at exboyfriendjewelry.com. Interested parties contact you via a private messaging system. Or sell your jewelry to Red Swan (redswan.com), which covers shipping costs and allows you to change your mind if you don't think the price the company is offering to pay is fair.
Miscellaneous: You can sell nearly anything on eBay and Amazon (read about their fees online). Or, for free, post local ads on Craigslist and ebayclassifieds.com.
