I love shopping at consignment sales, but I don't like selling things in them because of all the rules... cardstock tags pinned in a certain way, hangers a certain type and way, must drop off at this time, etc. etc. Plus, they typically take 30% of the profit, and another $6-$7 advertising fee.
With this page, I can post what I want to sell, and it sells pretty easy as long as it's priced right. It's harder to sell things over $10, but with enough persistence, it can be done. Plus, I get 100% of the profit! I just meet them down the street at the grocery store (I don't like having them come to our place because I don't know them).
So far, I have made about $350 over the past couple of months in selling the kids old toys and clothes!!!
Tomorrow, I am going to be making another $15. And there are a couple of other sells in the making to where I may make up to another $40 within the next few days. I know that's not a ton, but it's some extra cash, which is always nice!!
And I've still got about $100 worth of kids stuff alone to sell.
I've also been donating some things. The other day, we took a garbage bag full of toys to our old neighbors from our first apartment. And we given a way a few other things here and there.
I made a huge list of stuff that we needed to get rid of before Christmas, and I am determined to either sell or donate every bit of it, so that the kids have plenty of room for their new stuff.
