We’ve spent the summer moving across state lines to be closer to my parents and it has been a crazy time with lots of little extra expenses that seem to add up very fast. Instead of going through everything while packing up the old house I decided to just box everything up and bring it over. Now I’m spending time carefully going through all the boxes and deciding what to keep and what to get rid of. The garage is FULL of boxes and I’ve been dividing things up into stuff we can’t live without, stuff to put on CraigsList, stuff for a yard sale and stuff to give away or donate.
I came across several boxes of movies and CDs that we haven’t watched or listened to in a long while and I was trying to decide on the best way to sell them – would I get more for them individually at a yard sale? Selling them in bulk on CraigsList? Or maybe I should try listing them on eBay? Then I found musicMagpie.com where you can easily sell your used DVDs, CDs and games.
I knew I wouldn’t get much for the movies and CDs if I put them on CraigsList or sold them at a yard sale and listing them on eBay would take a lot of time plus I’d have to pay listing fees whether they sold or not. MusicMagpie is an exciting alternative because all you have to do is type in the barcode number on your CDs, DVDs and games on their website and you’ll instantly see the price they’re offering for them. You can even scan the barcodes in with your webcam or use their free app on your iPhone or Android device. Their prices are guaranteed, there are no listing or seller fees, and they even provide you with shipping labels to send your stuff in for free. Once they receive your items they send you out a check, easy peasy! I’m thrilled to have found a simple way to make some cash and clear out some space at the same time.
