Box Tops For Education

July 26th, 2011 at 07:21 am

Did you know you can collect Box Tops for Education and sell them on ebay? Yep. I just did. Received over $9 for 100 of them.

I have in the past given them to our elementary school which collects them, however...I don't have elementary aged children any longer.

On a whim, I check ebay. And they are a hot item!

Now, I wouldn't go buying products you don't normally buy just to sell the box tops, but if you buy them already then it is just a bonus to cut those things off!

Do you know of other interesting things that sell well on ebay?

    That's interesting! Good to know - since we are in the habit of saving those. (Will probably be 8 more years before I can sell them on ebay - but, will try to remember!).

    I don't know if I heard it here, but I've heard that old manuals for appliances are a hot seller on eBay.

    They've gotten hotter in recent years for some reason. I sold 70 several years ago and only got $1. I recently gave hundreds of dollars worth (from couponing promotions) to a coworker, then jokingly said I wanted them back since I didn't realize they were worth almost face value! We had a good laugh over it. Now the school wants to know why a certain line item is so large and who caused it. She won't tell! Big Grin

    We got in-flight bags from Virgin when we flew to LHR with socks, toothbrushes, eye masks, etc. I saw THEM for sale on ebay yesterday. I doubt I'll mess around with selling them, but DD half of ours on a round-trip flight went unopened. I thought I'd put them in the collection bin for the shelter. Is that strange or ok?

    @My English Castle, yes, I think it is fine to give those to the shelter. A blessing for sure.

    And you inspired me to sell some of my BTFE on ebay. They've got bids on them already.
