Inspired by SA posters

July 9th, 2019 at 12:13 pm

I have been busy these past few days. Last time I was on SA and caught up on some blogs, I was impressed by how several posters were actively catching snowflakes. In the past I've alway assumed the amounts earned or saved were not worth the effort. But after a little bit of research I did find some easy ways to earn.

1)I tried out the Facebook local yard sales. Way easier than dealing with Craigslist or OfferUp, with the back and forth dealing and no-shows.

I went ahead and quickly posted some items that I have held onto for a couple years, intending for them to be gifts but it never happened. Those have not sold, I think people are waiting for them to get down to "fire sale" prices.

I listed several decor pieces that I purchased overseas over ten years ago. I have loved them in my home throughout this time and I have enjoyed using them in different ways throughout the years to keep the look updated. I'm just ready to pare down my stuff even more. I priced these items very cheaply, as I feel that I more than got my use out of them. They sold within a half hour.

2)I found out about Decluttr as well and was so successful on that site. I had unused tech devices that I wasn't able to sell back when I got new ones for whatever reason. I figured I wouldn't get much for them because technology ages so quickly. I was shocked to discover I am getting $122! An Ipod classic? I didn't think they would want that, and an older Iphone as well that used to belong to my kids.

3)I applied for and accepted a credit card offer for Bank of America Premium Rewards. It has a bonus 5,000 points if you spend $3,000 in 3 months. That can be redeemed for $500! It has an annual fee but I believe the benefits outweigh the fee for me. Time will tell.

All in all, over the last few days I earned:
$19 in FB sales
$122 in Decluttr
Total: $141

Thanks for the inspiration, guys!

    Fantastic! Sometimes cards waive the annual fee for the first year. Make sure to check on that.

    Hmm, I think my husband has an iPod classic, not sure if he uses it much anymore. We have all been reluctant to give ours up, even though we rarely use them.

    Is Facebook local yard sale the same thing as Facebook Marketplace?

    Pretty much, just a smaller area to sell and buy in. I just post to both now.
