For those of you that think that there is nothing in your house worth selling to make some extra cash, believe me, there is. In the last week we have made $265 selling random stuff on Craigslist, and every penny of it is going right into our home buying fund. OK it’s not going to buy a house on its own, but its another $265 that we did not have last week. So what did we end up selling?
Office chair -$25
Apple wireless router – $50
17 inch LCD computer monitor – $50
Box of drawer pulls from a project I never even started – $15
Back massager w/heat pads – $10
Magazine storage boxes – $10
Office desk – $50
Old unused cellphone – $5
Next up? Our clothes closets..we are going to dig out everything that we have not worn in the past 6-12 months and sell it all. If there are no buyers, we are just going to donate it all to Goodwill and take the tax write-off. After that, some of my old musical equipment is going to go away, as I stopped trying to be a rock star many years ago when I cut all my hair off. I bet if you look hard enough, in every nook and cranny, you will find something that you can sell to make some extra cash, whether you need it to pay your bills, save for something more important, or take your significant other out for a well deserved dinner. Trust me, the stuff is there…you just aren’t seeing it.
