Craigslist and Sales

March 17th, 2010 at 01:27 pm

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I did a little cleaning up in our basement yesterday. I found two things to give away for free. One to sell. I posted them on craiglist. And the responses? Geez, I've never had so many emails arrive in my inbox at once!!

The free items were a non working printer and garage door opener. One has been picked up, the other is sitting outside now waiting pickup. I have four other people to email if it doesn't go soon. People love free non working things apparently. Smile

The one item I have up for sale should be sold tonight. I had the most responses for this item, which makes me think I may have underpriced it. I will make $15.

I also listed another collection of toys my girls have decided to part with on ebay. I started it last night as a five day listing, so it would still end on Sunday. I like Sunday endings, so I can get the item in the mail on Monday. That is if they pay promptly!

In my basement cleaning, I put all my garage sale items in boxes. I have about 10!! They are on a table and ready to be marked with prices. I need to go get labels before I can start. It's still two months away and I expect to find some more things to sell!

    Dead printers are often worth a $50 trade-in during special promos at Staples and other office stores. Any ink cartridges in them are work $3 each at Staples. Old dead printers are worth quite a bit of money to folks that know what to do with them! Smile

    I'm aware of those trade in's...just don't have the use for it. Didn't know about the $3, but will keep that in mind. It's nice to make someone's day though!

    Our school band fundraises throughout the year by collecting ink cartridges. They do quite well with it.

    It's good when a posting leads to a lot of responses, because that USUALLY means that you will be free of the item before long! Of course, there is never any insurance against deadbeats, but that is why backup contacts are such a good idea...
