Frugal Friday: Sell Something
Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 3, 2010 @ 7:33 pm In Budget Living,Frugal Friday | 40 Comments
Over the years when our budget has been tight, we’ve tried to be creative at spending less and earning more.
Oh my! How much “stupid tax” have I paid in selling expensive stuff that I shouldn’t have bought in the first place? Usually, I rarely get that money back when I sell it, so we chalk it up to a loss and try not to do it again. In some instances, though, we’ve more than got our use out of something and have been happy to part with it so that someone else can benefit from it.
Either way, the extra cash is helpful. In the past we put it toward our debt. Now, we use it to upgrade something that we have been wanting. One year when we were actively attacking our debt, there just wasn’t enough fat in the budget to buy some new homeschool curriculum I wanted. So, I rifled through my school supplies and sold a lot of books and resources that we didn’t use on ebay. In the end, I earned enough to buy the new stuff we wanted.
There are lots of ways you can sell stuff and earn a little bit of money. Plus, you’ll be doing some decluttering  in the process.
I’d love to hear what other ways you use to sell the stuff you no longer want or need.
