7 Places to Sell Your Unwanted Stuff

7 places to sell your unwanted itemsA lot of you may be doing some Spring Cleaning or maybe moving and you may be wondering if you should sell some of your unwanted stuff or just drop it off at the nearest donation center.

We just moved twice in 8 months, one of those moves being almost 2000 miles, which meant we purged a lot of junk that we kept carrying around with us. We opted to sell as much as we could to help offset the costs of moving across the country a bit. In that time I have learned of quite a few places to sell my stuff that I no longer need.

Most of us know about Craigslist, Ebay, and Amazon Marketplace. They are all good options because of the amount of exposure those sites have to draw more attention to your items, but they also have their own set of drawbacks.

Ebay and Amazon take a petty good cut of your money and then Paypal will take their cut as well making you wonder who’s getting more money for your stuff. Craigslist is nice and easy but I have found a lot of people will express interest in my items but not actually respond to buy it unless it’s in the free section.

Here are some lesser known places to sell your stuff that might allow you to keep more of your money.

Book Scouter –  Compare prices with 40 other sites to get you the best price for your used books.

CardCash – If you have any unwanted gift cards you can sell them here

Cloth Diaper Trader – Cloth diapers, baby carriers, breastfeeding items, mama cloth, etc

Gazelle – They will buy your electronics (cell phones, laptops, iPods, etc) even if they’re broken

Music Magpie – CDs, DVDs and games

Shop Karma – Consign your unwanted clothes

Spots Corner – Sell cloth diapers, yarn, children’s clothes, etc. Cloth diapers seem to do best though I did sell quite a few puppets on this site.

Do you have a site that you use to sell your unwanted items? Feel free to share your finds.

    I am definitely going to check into Shop Karma. I have tried consignment stores, but they take a big cut and to be honest, I have never liked they whole process. It is a lot of work. Thanks for this info.
