10 Things You Should Sell On eBay Instead Of Throwing Away
We've heard all the excuses that people give to put off selling on eBay: "I don't have money to invest, It sounds like too big of a commitment, I don't know what kinds of things people want, etc..." Well, after reading through this list (and maybe our other BOLO's) you are out of excuses. Every day you throw away things that you could be making money with on eBay. So buckle up, and let's launch into the list of 8 items you didn't know you could sell on eBay!
Empty Toilet Paper & Paper Towel Rolls
Since paper towels can be had for around $1 a roll, who would have ever thought that the empty rolls wold be worth anything at all!? Well, it turns out that there is a sizable market for empty paper towel and toilet paper rolls/tubes on eBay! What do people need these for? I'm not sure... Craft supplies? Tunnels for quite a small hamster? Whatever it is, they sell! So start saving them! I know I am!
Empty Cell Phone Boxes
Most people at some point in their life own a new phone (or else do like I do and buy used phones off of eBay). But if you get one of those killer upgrade deals, you have a choice to make...keep and store the box so you can resell the phone for a higher price at some point in the future, or resell the box immediately to recoup some of the cost of your phone! If you upgrade to the new iPhone for $199.95, and then sell your box for $67 (as above) then you've recouped more than 25% of the cost! Or, if you have several boxes, sitting around from past upgrades, group them together and put them on bid! The lot of Samsung boxes above had almost 30 bids by the time the auction ended! I don't know about you, but learning this had me begging empty boxes from family and friends (and maybe peaking in trash cans...)
Pincones... (Yes the ones from a tree...)
If I learned one thing from making this list, it's that anyone can sell on eBay! Not having enough money to buy items to resell is no longer an excuse. If you live in the country, simply wander outside, find a pine tree, and collect the most beautiful of pine cones! These often sell very well and are incredibly easy to pack! The larger the pine cone the better they sell! make sure your cones are fresh, clean, and haven't been crushed.
