Last week we talked about having a box of stuff to sell at a yard sale – but never actually having a yard sale.
I complied a list of ways to sell stuff if you aren’t planning a yard sale. My list was good. But many of you sent me ideas for categories I did not cover on my original list.
So this week I present to you the REVISED list! Stay tuned, because next week I’ll share my secrets to a profitable & EASY yard sale.
And you know Ebay is a place to sell just about anything. But you may not be up for the whole Ebay thing. No worries! FedEx offers Ebay Valet service. You bring the item and they do all the work!
Ready? Here’s the NEW list:
(note: I am not sponsored by any of these companies or websites)

Note: this info can change, it is current as of 4/11/17
And remember you don’t have to do this alone. If you like the idea of selling your stuff, but don’t like the idea of all the work that comes with it – then try hiring out the job. A local teen who typically babysits or does snow removal might be interested.
The best advice: TEAM UP & GIVE YOURSELF A DEADLINE!
Without a deadline, the items are destined to sit (unsold) in a box. Team up with a friend or neighbor so you can hold each other accountable to the date you set.
