This blog is meant to serve as a companion website to all eBay users. Everywhere from the newbie to the experienced. I remember when I first started to sell on eBay, I really started to look at what was around my house that I could make money on. This is true for most eBayers, but some are still intimidated to sell on eBay.
Although I have many topics on what to sell on eBay, I still get asked, what should I sell on eBay if I am just starting out. For the beginner or the experienced, a great place to find inventory is around your house. There were a lot of items that I looked at everyday, but never thought they would be worth anything. In the beginning, I never even thought about selling it on eBay. After taking an inventory of the items I don’t really care for around my house, I was surprised to find that a lot of them were worth some money.
eBay has a great tool to help us wrap our mind around the money that is laying in our house.
This is very simple, all you need to do is search room by room and click on the $ sign to see what its worth. With Spring coming soon, this is a great way to clear some of that extra clutter around your house. Or are you ready to upgrade your TV, Computer, Camera, or whatever other gadget you have laying around? eBay is a great way to overcome those costs.
Not to long ago I as trying to justify getting new Laptop. The one that I wanted was a little expensive, but the only way I could justify it was by getting rid of some of my other gadgets. Searching around the house, it was easy to find some electronics that I was not using anymore. I almost take it to far now. Amy and I were talking, and she let me know that she wanted a new purse, I asked her what she wanted to sell to get money and buy the purse. She quickly reminded me that not everything has to be a trade. We are allowed to get items with out sacrificing other items we may love. I guess this is true, but I just get caught up in the eBay moment!
