1) Let the kids pick the items to sell. There will be less drama, and it will be a learning opportunity for the little ones.
2) Make sure the items are clean and in working order, and take a good picture. Ensure the lighting is good and the features of the product are easily visable.
3) Price the item correctly. Remember that people are looking for a good deal on a used item, so don't overprice it.
4) Use the internet to sell your item. Yesterday, I sold a toy in one day using Kijiji.ca.
Here's what I sold: Little Tykes Work Bench (Status: SOLD!)
For those of us who are Spring cleaning, now is the perfect time to purge. Getting rid of clothes and gear that kids no longer need is a fantastic way to de-clutter, make some money, and help the environment.
Last year, 85% of Canadians participated in the second-hand economy. It’s a win-win for Canadians and the environment. You can learn more about the second-hand economy in Canada, and the role Canadians play in it, check out www.secondhandeconomy.kijiji.ca.
