Sell your old stuff on eBay

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Mine was excellent.

As a way to make room for my new things, I’m thinking about going through my old stuff and getting rid of things I don’t use any more. Instead of just throwing it away, I plan on trying to sell it on eBay.

My wife did this last spring. We super cleaned our apartment and put together a pile of stuff we haven’t used in a long time. For example, a Sega Game Gear, a LYNX video game system, old hockey equipment, a PDA, and an old phone. I put all this stuff on eBay, sold it, and made a decent amount of money. (It’s amazing how much people will pay for a LYNX.)

Thus, selling stuff on eBay has two benefits. You can reduce the clutter in your life and you can make some money. Very nice.
