167th Penny Pinching Party

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

This is the best time of year to go through closets, clean out old toys, and make some extra cash for Christmas. This week I gathered all of the toys that my kids no longer play with and listed them for sale in the local classifieds. I didn't even bother to clean them up or organize them and take really great looking photos. I took this quick photo of some geotrax:
 I used some internet photos of the geotrax all set up rather than spend an hour organizing them, setting them up and taking photos. I sold them for full asking price an hour after listing them. I also sold a dusty Radio Flyer trike an hour after listing it. Sometimes I put off listing things for sale because of the amount of work it takes to clean them up, take some good looking photos, and list them. I decided just to take some quick photos and list them as they were and had no problems selling. In fact I had multiple calls! It feels great to make some room in the closets and cash at the same time!
