Image representing eBay as depicted in CrunchBaseImage via CrunchBaseThe simplest way to supplement your income can also benefit your life in other ways. By selling your stuff, not only are you making extra cash on things that you rarely use anymore, but you also remove the extra clutter from your life. Often times, this clutter leads us to feel more overwhelmed and frustrated with the state of our financial and psychological health.
I have compiled a list of resources that will help you in your quest to sell your things.
eBay The granddaddy of auction sites created an entirely new way to shop in the 1990s. Another great way to sell your stuff. (,, and all have their own auction sites that allow you to sell your stuff, too.) Although owned by eBay, it is personally, my favorite way to get rid of things I no longer need. On you can sell your old books, CDs, and DVDs. You set the price, no bidding. You are alerted of a sale via email. You send out the package within a week. Every other week, pays you. is owned by eBay so if you have an account with eBay, you're ready to sell!
Craigslist A tried and true workhorse. Craigslist offers a place where individuals can buy, sell, or swap their items. Please note that there may be extra work involved: individuals may never show, they may try to lowball your agreed upon price, or they may need help lifting the items. Great resource if you need to unload items quickly.
Garage Sales Or you can do it the good, old-fashioned way, too. A few garage sales a year to clean out your basement or attic can be an excellent way to make a few extra bucks to pay down debt.
Selling items you own is an excellent way to begin to create a dent in your credit card debt. It is also helpful in helping you discover other ways you can make more money.
