I just made my first sale on craigslist. I sold our Glider/rocker and the ottoman. We don't really use it. It's just taking up space. And it looks good.
Lately I've been taking all my old baby stuff to this one consignment shop up the street. They pay okay for stuff, and the little extra money I've made has been fun to play with a bit. But I thought I'd give craigslist a try and see if it would work. After all, I could possibly make more money selling it myself, and not have the hassle of dragging my stuff to the car with 2 kids in tow.
I'm FLABBERGASTED that after my listing was only online for less than 12 hours (I posted it last night when I couldn't sleep) I've already made $$$. And to be honest, It's probably triple what I would have made from the consignment shop.
This extra money may possibly pay for me and Chris to take a mini-vacay next weekend for our anniversary. Depends on how much more I can get. Wish me luck. I'm just dying to get to a beach!
