Selling: Used Items
 
 

box

 

Save money selling used items by keeping the packaging.  Items with packaging much easier to sell to people who want to give them as gifts.  It is also thrift friendly because items with the original packaging sell for more money, whether they are just used or vintage. Be sure and also keep any manuals that come with a product.

Frugal footnotes:

 

Here are some additional frugal tips to help with selling used items.

- When displaying items for sale at a garage sale, get them off the ground.
 
- If an item is electrical, have a power source in the garage.
 
- Always sell an item "as is" if it is used on ebay.  However, if the item is in good condition, be sure and put that in the list. 
Pictures sell items.  Always put as many pictures as possible with items listings.
