Trying to Sell Stuff is frustrating

March 14th, 2018 at 10:55 am

I don't know how people do it... I listed a couple items on OfferUp and local FB Buy/sell and no success! On a positive note, this is strengthening my resolve to stop buying so much stuff.

I'll hold onto the designer handbag and try again in late summer. I'm going to take more jewelry in tomorrow to the place I went before. This time I have some rings that have diamonds and gemstones, not just plain gold or silver pieces like the first time. It will be interesting how much they value them. I will be more selective about selling these.

I went through some of my Mom's boxes and found a box of pennies and a few other coins. Some of them were fairly old. I sorted and put aside pennies that were 1960s and older. She also had a Susan B Anthony coin,and a buffalo nickel from 1920. Also, three $2 bills! Very cool and I'm keeping them. The rest of the pennies and other coins I rolled and have $5.00 to add to my "extra income" fund.... I need to come up with a clever name for it.

So far:

Extra income fund:
$335.00 - jewelry sale #1
$5.00 - coins
$340.00 TOTAL

Spavings Fund:
$61.11 -balance
$50.00 - AMEX blue cash reward
$111.11 TOTAL

    You did well with the first jewelry sale! At this point, I'm only selling on eBay. List and wait. No needing to try to get someone to show up to my house or meet. I may do it with a refrigerator we need to sell, but not little items.

    I was going to sell things once I finished my quarter and had time. Then I decided to save my time and energy and just donate it all. Definitely makes me rethink what I bring in! We are planning on a downsize (pending realistic timeline, but hopefully 12-15 months) and that is further motivation to declutter.

    Ebay scares me, because I hear about all the fees, and that if a buyer complains, Ebay doesn't back the seller up at all. I donate a lot of items, but a $250 purse that's practically new- I'd like to get some money for it!
