I’ve recently started reading Man Vs Debt. His blog is really awesome – I’ve been enjoying going into his archives and reading about his adventures. I like the way he writes, because he makes it so much fun.
He is selling a guide called Sell Your Crap, which has guides to selling on ebay, amazon and craigslist. I have had limited success with selling on craigslist – it’s usually a hit or miss. But I have been struggling to sell some stuff on ebay. I have been trying to sell my Sega Genesis console and have had no bids. I have never even tried to sell anything on Amazon before. I am an avid reader and I have tons of books that I know I will never read again. I would really like to unload them on Amazon. Now that we have Netflix, I find that most of the DVDs I own are available for Instant Streaming and I can let go of most of those as well.
I am really considering buying his guide. I am not able to find out how much it costs though. The only thing I worry about is whether buying such a guide will be useful enough to justify the cost. We live in an apartment and so there is not a lot of things lying around. Maybe the next time I visit my parents, I should raid their garage for stuff to sell. 🙂 Plus I have to convince Mike. He always feels that it is better to just donate unwanted things as it is less of a hassle and plus it’s always nice to give back. I agree with him to an extent too, even if the Sega Genesis I had listed had sold, it would have been so difficult to pack and ship it.
So have any of you had success with selling on ebay? Do you think I should buy the guide?
