We all hold onto things. Do you have an obscene collection of baseball cards? What about Beanie Babies? Got any old clothes in the back of your closet? I’m talking bags, shoes, old laptops, Blu- Rays. Well, there have been case studies of MULTIPLE people who have paid off up to $15,000.00 in debt by selling their old things on Ebay, Poshmark and Offer Up.
Ebay is classic. Everybody loves Ebay. The first step is taking stock of your inventory. It’s time to take a good hard look around at what you have to sell. Everything can sell. Stop telling yourself it can’t. Next, set up your Ebay and Paypal accounts. Now you’ll be all set to create your listing and begin to estimate shipping costs and start selling your product.
Poshmark is a used clothing website. We’ve found that this is the best place to sell clothes. First you set up your account, then you start posting. It’s extremely user friendly and you can buy, sell and trade with other Poshers. It’s time to clean out that hall closet you never look at. Be sure to include pictures with your items. They’ll handle the shipping label. All you have to do is click print.
Offer Up is a little less virtual, but just as effective. You’re potential buyer are all in your area so this is great for bigger items. Old kayak? Offer Up. Old bike? Offer up. Extra Girl Scout Cookies? Offer Up. There is no need for shipping, because you’re selling within your area. You can just create your account and get started right away.
Channel your inner Marie Kondo. If it doesn’t spark joy, let it go. If you’re not using it, it’s time to sell it! Everyone has plenty of money sitting in their garages and closets. What are you waiting for? Go check your stock!
