In an effort to simplify I’m constantly going through the house to donate or sell items that we don’t need anymore. We are always bringing new items into our homes and I do my best to make a conscious effort to also remove items from my home on a regular basis. My absolute favorite way these days is to sell on local Facebook groups! Some people call them Facebook Buy/Sell Groups or Facebook Yard Sale Groups. Whatever you want to call them, they’re basically local groups for a city or regional area where people can list items they want to sell. I’ve mad at least $1,000 doing this over the last 1-2 years and you can too!
Why Facebook and not Craigslist? Craigslist used to be the go to place for selling your stuff locally. I used it all the time! But listing on Facebook is just so much easier! I get more interest because people are constantly on Facebook, I can check someones profile to make me feel a little better knowing who I’m meeting up with and it’s so much faster than Craigslist. We still use craigslist on occasion, my husband has better luck with cars and car parts there, but in general Facebook is the place to sell locally now and we’ve had tons of success with it.
Note: This post was originally published on another blog of mine back in 2016! I’ve sold much more on Facebook since then.
