I Sold A Box

April 28th, 2018 at 09:12 am

Did you know that empty boxes for electronics and other collectibles are bought and sold on eBay? I just sold one for a console game. My net proceeds are $8.27 for something that was taking up room and I was considering recycling.

I know some people who buy and sell would say to keep the box, but honestly, we keep electronics so long that by the time we are selling for a few dollars the box isn't going to make a big difference in the price we gain.

I decided this one was taking up too much space and since I have no idea when we would sell or get rid of the actual electronic game, it was time to go.

More money in my pocket!

    What a good idea that was. I also did not know about selling boxes.

    As Johnny Carson used to say, I did not know that!

    Great idea about the box! Although I have read that video game consoles are worth more when you have the original box. This is why there's a great demand for empty console boxes.

    However, since it was taking up space, you're better off having some extra cash in the bank Smile

    Yes, MsGoose that is why there is that demand. But the truth is this console is almost six years old and our daughter is taking it to college so we don't expect to sell it anytime soon. The older it is the less demand and desire for the box. And I truly don't want to store it any longer.
