Making Room, Making Money

Since I recently moved out of my house, I have come to realize I have a lot more stuff than I thought. I have been trying to get rid of it and generate some extra cash.

I have a large collection of books, mostly from school. For some reason I love to buy the book I am reading - perhaps because I will always have it to reference. So I have been going through and picking out a few that I can't imagine needing in the future and putting them on half.com. I really like to sell and buy on half.com because it lumps all of the same items together and lets you see different price points for the condition of the item.

I have posted a couple odds and ends on eBay. I never liked eBay all that much because it always seems like a lot of work to list something and you end up getting nickeled and dimed.

The one site I think that has more potential is craigslist. The best way I think to describe it is a classified ad web site. Its great because its free to post things and organized by cities. I used it with amazing success when I rented out my house a couple of months ago. However, I haven't tried selling any of my stuff on craigslist, I imagine big things that are not easily shippable such as tvs are better sold on it.

So far I have cashed in on $95.78. Now if I could find away to multiply this by at least x100, I might be on to something.

Whats interesting is all of these sites are at least partially owned by the same company........
