I’m running a day behind here on posts, my new contributor Summer has been helping me come up with content. She’s even been extremely good about giving me enough to last me over a week at a time, and here I still can’t get her content up. Aye Yi Yi! Anyways, enough about my delinquency!!
Summer is full of wonderful green tips and has been sharing her own "Tis the Season of “Red and Green”” Here on Mom Start. We’ve had 9 tips already and here is tip number 10 on being more green than red this Holiday Season. Clean out your electronics, by re-selling them. Of course you can reuse them, donate them, and recycle them through specific programs, but today’s tip is to just sell them again! Check out Summer’s ways to sell your old electronics.
– Have a garage sale if you live in warmer climate with low precipitation. Set it all out and use your local newspaper to advertise.
– Use eBay on items that have high values and a board audience. You can sell items using “Buy It Now” for a set fee or you can allow people to bid on your items by simply setting a lowest acceptable price. Using eBay may also cost you a fee to simply post your items, but the buyer pays all shipping costs when they front the money for your item. Remember you’ll have to mail these items so plan accordingly during this holiday season. I purchased my son’s Imaginext pirate ship for under our tree there last month. Don’t forget to get your eBay box on the move too. eBay also owns a book division called Half.
– Find specific venues such as places like Half Price Books which pays money for your used books.
– Last and not least, Craig’s List, where you get to sell unwanted items locally. The buyer and you hook up at a mutually agreed upon place and time, you get on the spot cash, and the win- win is they get the product they want and you get rid of the product you’re done using. I have been using Craig’s List to get rid of all my no-longer-needed baby items.
