I have recently joined a number of Buy Swap Sell sites on Facebook that service the local areas. Once you join, then random sales appear in your news feeds. At times i was amazed at some of the things people were selling… AND buying! (old crockery, used clothes and toys etc). Some things are new too and going at great prices. We all have some new stuff tucked away in our cupboards… You know, like that kettle your aunt bought you for your engagement decades back, but it never matched with your kitchen decor but you didn’t have the heart to get rid of it and felt too embarrassed to rewrap and give to someone else. Or those kids clothes you have that your baby wore once and then had some steroid level growth spurt and couldn’t fit into it the next time you tried it on! Or even that toy your child enjoyed so much and although looks a little ‘loved’ it still has lots of life left in it for another young child.
Well… These BSS sites turn what you think is your ‘crap’ into someone else’s ‘bargain’… And you make some easy pocket money, to use on the kids, or yourself, or save for a weekend away or family pass to the yearly Show or a new XBox… Whatever! Just think about it… If you had 10 items you sold for $5 each… You’ve made a quick $50! And who knows… You may even find something you might like… And for the price of a coffee!
It’s a very easy way to make some easy money to spend on whatever you want, which for many stay at home mums, isn’t always a luxury that is available. What’s best is there are no selling fees. No auctions. It’s first in best dressed and pick up is always local! Get on it!
