Saving Money

eBay Total Halfway Through December

Fifteen days ago, I started working on my modified CD ladder.  As part of my plan, I’m trying to earn $100 a month, each month, from eBay sales.  As of today, I’ve made $76.45 (after fees).  With 16 days to go, it looks like I’ll make my $100 goal for the month of December.

Last year, I wrote an article about how to sell baby clothes on eBay, and I use many of the same tips and techniques when selling other items.

So far, I’ve sold several books, a broken portable DVD player (for parts), and a pair of shoes.  It usually takes five to ten minutes to list an item, and it feels good to make a little extra cash and rid my house of unnecessary clutter.  By the way, when selling books, it’s usually a good idea to ship them using USPS Media Mail.  It’s cheaper than Priority or Parcel Post.

  1. Good for you for clearing out your house and making a little extra cash at the same time. I’ve been doing this for years, in fact I’ve got an “ebay box” where I toss all the things I’d like to sell. Every couple of months I spend a Sunday afternoon and list it all. In an effort to be a little more frugal and save the ebay fees I used Craigslist for some items, and while I like that I can save that money, I find my items don’t sell as well there as they do on ebay. Could just be the types of items I’m selling, so I think I’ll go back to ebay as well.

    Glad to hear people are still buying there!
