When it's out with old and in with new at your house (or even just out with the old), do you try to sell your stuff?
I have sold a few things on eBay over the years: gently worn maternity and post-maternity clothes, a coat, and once a pair of white heels (not sure what I was thinking). However, I have never sold any bigger items like dressers or tables or couches.
It's not that I'm opposed to selling. I love the idea that everything can be reused, and I refuse to throw most any reusable thing into the trash can. I guess I just don't have that much quality stuff to sell. :) I tend to give the boys' outgrown but usable clothes and gear to friends, family, or neighbors. The rest goes off to charity.
More than anything, I have to steer clear of eBay cause I usually find things I want to buy that far exceed the things I want to sell. I don't have much self control, what can I say?
+++ What about you? Do you sell used furniture or household items? Where do you sell? Has the money you've earned been worth it for you?
