Making some extra money!

I didn't participate in WFMW last week because it was a themed one that I just don't have experience in yet, so I chose not to do it. It was something about keeping kids busy during the summer months... We'll see how that goes!!
This week it's not themed, so I can write about whatever I want! I have chosen to write about how I make extra money!
Every now and then I get on a de-clutter kick and start gathering stuff that we don't need and or want anymore. I round it all up, take pictures of everything and type out descriptions of it all into Word. I sign in to one of my favorite websites - Craigslist - and start loading all of my descriptions and pictures onto there. Then comes the waiting game - waiting for the flood of emails of people that want to buy your stuff, waiting for the people that are supposed to show up to buy your stuff (and don't) and then waiting for someone else to actually come and buy it. I have sold almost all of Graycen's baby clothes on there, some toys and other random things from around the house. I've made quite a boatload of money selling stuff on there and plan on continuing to do so!! It works for me!
To see other tips from other moms (and dads) go over to Rocks In My Dryer!

I love Craigslist. We actually sold our house on there! I've sold quite a few things and have been very happy with it.

Great thought. I love Craig's List

I puffy heart Craigslist - minus the weirdos and the sickos, it's a great place.

That's where I posted my childcare opening, this year and last. It's so great, yeah free advertising.
