A few years back, I opened an account on eBay with the simple intention of selling a few items I had lying around the house I no longer needed as a way to earn extra money. I sold my tennis racquet collection, one by one. Golf clubs went next, then comic books…you get the picture. Today, I have a feedback on eBay of 1,190.

Each feedback translates to a transaction. At an estimated $25+ per transaction, I calculate I have made over $29,750 on eBay. And, that’s not counting the hundreds of books I have sold on Amazon as well as the heavier items I sold on Craigslist, which I could not sell on eBay.

So, if times are tough or if you just want to minimize on the items in your home I suggest you think about selling your stuff on eBay, Amazon, or Craigslist.

An extra $29,750 in the bank can go a very long way.

This is a cool idea... However, it is not for everyone. I myself love to sell real estate and sellers love the results... Helping people move on is the greatest...

Helping people move on is good. And, yes, the idea isn't for everyone. I was merely suggesting for people wanting to stay in their home an avenue to pursue to help them do so.
