I have been having some serious lack of motivation listing the huge mound of stuff I set aside to sell on ebay and craigslist. Hopefully by reading what we've all gotten rid of and made money from in the process will help us get more motivated to list!

Here's what I've sold since on craigslist since Sunday.
$20 2 gaming rocking chairs
$30 exersaucer
$5 little people garage
$20 2 vtech electronic reading books

The only thing that I have so far is $12.70 for cashing in DH's beer bottle collection. I am still in major declutter mode and am planning to sell our baby/maternity things. I am also looking into selling our unused CDs.

I sold a few books on cashforbooks.net
2 last week for $25.00
4 this week for $12.00

I like to run ISBN's thru there every couple weeks... I've been getting hits LOL

I have a never ending bucket of outgrown clothes for the resale kiddie shoppe. DS needs to stop growing or maybe they just need to buy the whole bucket at once?

In August I made $118 in total on ebay from selling my son's clothes and books. Also today I am taking about 30 clothes items to the resale shop so I will see what I get there...not much I expect, but at least it saves me listing them all!

Just sold some excess kids clothes. Between hand me downs, random crap my mom buys, and stuff I buy that I actually like, LOL, we always have too much. I figured it made more sense to just sell the extra winter clothes now when people are in the market.

We are moving and I want ALL my clothes to fit into one dresser and one small closet. I sold a big laundry bag full to a resale shop for $40, and they just donated what they didn't buy so I still got rid of lots.

Making some $$ has inspired me to get rid of more that way!

I have a toddler! 7/27/09

Yesterday morning I took 30 kids clothes to the resale shop; she took 17 of them and I got $55 for them so I am fairly happy with that, as it saves me listing them all and at least I got something back without much effort.

Yay! Just sold some more stuff!

$15 game gear
$10 tonka ride on toy
$20 desk

Next I really need to start on the mound of clothes I have sitting. You ladies have me thinking it might be worth taking a trip to the consignment store.
