If you’ve ever had the thought that you’d like to declutter but you didn’t want to “throw away” an “investment” you made in an item, you must read Donna Smallin’s How to Declutter and Make Money Now: Turn Clutter into Cash.
Donna starts off with a complete list of “bestsellers” in the second hand market, including valuables, musical instruments, and brand name designer bags. She suggests you have a goal in mind for the money and focus on how you will feel once you’ve met that goal–this will be your motivation!
Donna explains how each online service works (ebay, amazon, etc.) and which is the best choice for the item(s) you’re selling. She also explains how to present the item(s), determine price, the fees associated with listing and selling, and how to determine shipping charges. She also explains why, in the end, selling particular products online is more profitable.
There’s extensive information on selling gadgets, cell phones and other technical devices, which according to David Chen, President of NextWorth Solutions, Inc. the average American household has $1,500 worth of unused consumer electronics (use my GOPACK® Method to determine exactly what you have in your household!).
In addition to online selling, Donna covers yard sales, flea markets, pawning and estate sales AND why some items are just best for donating. It’s a great resource for anyone who has excessive clutter and wants to make some money…or simply fund future purchases.
As a fan of decluttering and maximizing space, I highly recommend this step-by-step to downsize, declutter and live simply!
