Make money – see what unwanted things I have sold on eBay

Now I love to grab a bargain on eBay, but I don’t like to use use “my” money to do it.

So to pay for my eBay purchases, I also sell on eBay and at the moment I have 10 items listed as now is the perfect time to sell, especially as buyers are looking for presents.

I don’t like clutter (much) and try to rid myself of stuff that is lying idle in a cupboard somewhere on a regular basis…maybe once a week if I have the time. I could list anything between two and ten items. I mostly list from my phone as it’s quicker.

I search for other similar items in the completed items tab to determine the price at which I’ll sell.

Since July I have sold quite a lot of things that are just not used by anyone in my family. What I don’t sell goes in a charity bag or to the school for fetes if it’s a toy or DVD….for example recently nobody wanted my perfectly good Stuart Little or Terminator DVDs….so at least a good cause can make some money from them.

Here’s a sample of what I have got rid of on eBay since July. This isn’t everything, but shows that basically you can sell most things, from shoes to beds.

The money I have stated here is what I sold the item for and doesn’t include my eBay or PayPal fees, or the postal costs (charged on top). The fees is 10% of final sale and then also if I chose to sell buy it now. Mostly I get free listings as I start my items at 99p or on free listing days.

Once again, you can sell almost anything on eBay and the money comes in handy when you want to buy items on eBay too. For example, I recently used my eBay earnings to buy a brand new but last season overstock bed. That same bed is in John Lewis, and I saved £350 off the list price, so I was very happy.
