Selling Stuff: Do You Make Cash on Your Clutter?

There's eBay, Craigslist, garage sales, and more—so many ways to sell your old stuff!

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?
