Try selling your stuff
These days, lots of folks have resorted to selling their stuff – old, new or otherwise – to make a buck. In print and online classified ads, people are parting with everything from jewelry to Jimmy Buffett tickets. Here are a few ways you could make some quick cash:
The Telegraph’s “Best Bargains” section. It won’t cost a penny for you to list items priced under $200. Your advertisement will run in print on two consecutive Saturdays, and online for 14 days. Check out www.nashuatelegraph.com/bestbargains.
Local pawn shops and consignment stores. For listings, check out www.nh.com.
Buyback opportunities. Places like Newbury Comics – locally on Daniel Webster Highway – and online sites like www.secondspin.com may pay cash for used CDs, DVDs and video games. And if you’ve got gift cards that are gathering dust, check out www.cardavenue.com. For a small fee, consumers can safely and securely buy, sell and trade pre-owned gift cards. It’s a good idea to call ahead or read up on the rules first.
The Web. Online classifieds giant Craigslist and Internet marketplace eBay can provide wide audiences for your items. Some sites, such as the online yard sale site www.Frimp.com, require you to register, but are still free to users.
