I haven't had luck through Craigslist (we live rurally and people don't want to come far for little things) and it takes so much time and energy, it isn't worth it unless the item is really big, like our dead car.
I stopped ebaying long ago because of the fees and tighter restrictions. It was good while it lasted.
I'm also not interested in paying to place online ads. The chance of having to eat those fees is just too great. I haven't had luck for awhile trying to sell online. Postage has gone up and people are spending less. I used to have luck selling diapers and slings, but we're done with those things and the things I have left are less compelling. Even on lists I'm on where I'm posting stuff (at no cost) to people I sort of know. The postage cost makes it feel not worth it to people.
I try to offer free stuff to friends first, but even my friends didn't want my good stuff this time, for some reason.
We used to use the swap shop near our house, but they're cracking down on nonresident use, so we can't use it anymore.
: Even though we've been super responsible and have used it for 5 years, contributing lots of good things there (and getting some, too, but less than we gave)..
So today I listed a bunch of really nice toys and things on Freecycle. It seems like there are more people using Freecycle than ever. I want to give back - I've gotten some good stuff through people on the list - and assuming I don't get no-shows, it won't be too hard.
I feel like this is the end of an era for me, though, because it signifies for me that trying to resell stuff isn't worth the pittance I might (or might not) get for my efforts. I guess I've crossed that line, or the economy has crossed it for me. So just call me a Freecycle girl now.
