De-cluttering cds/dvds etc
Am hoping to clear out some cd's/dvd's and books as want to empty some of the furniture have in lounge now so can get some new furniture and have less clutter around.
Has anyone sold anything on the site Magpie I have seen advertised or any where else they would recommend for getting a reasonable/worthwhile amount back.
I know I probably won't get much but seems a shame to just give stuff away when money is tight and have got lots I want to get!
Unfortunately dvd's have almost no value these days now that most things can be downloaded!
I sold a load of my dvd's on ebay at the end of last year but it depends how much hastle you want to go to? I only made on average £1 profit from each after postage and ebay fees and with a few trips to the post office its not really easy money! I looked into music magpie and they were only offering roughly 20 to 30 pence per single dvd and about £1 for older box sets but guess even though much less money its defo much less hastle with only one trip to post office and nothing to pay out!?
Afraid i dont know about cd's but guessing its about same?!!
My aim is to loose 8lb a month!!
feb: 3.5lbs lost (4.5lbs to go!)
First mini target - loose 14lbs
Pounds to first target: 3lbs!
TOTAL LOST SINCE 2ND JAN 2013: 11lbs 7TH FEB 2013 - Started 30 day shred (level one/workout eight done)
Personally I'd give them to charity & sell something which will get you more money. I bet if you have a look around the house you'll have something. I have a Waring juicer & was chatting to OH how I'd like an Actifry but no space in the cupboards (don't like stuff on the work surface) he said well you've got that juicer on the side you don't use, 'but I do use it' & when I though about it I'd not used it in over 1 year, I'm now giving it to my son, but if he hadn't wanted it I'd have sold that.
Do you have any books, retro games you can sell on ebay?
Have got books but didnt think they would go for much?
Probably about the same as DVDs now i think about it, lol
Cex is the best place ever to get trade ins!
They have a website, but its a bit faffy. They have stores everywhere. Take the items along (books, DVDs, CDs, consoles, games, electricals, old phones, all sorts!) they'll check them over and scan them all in and tell you what they'll give you for both cash in hand and store credit.
Store credit is always more than the cash, but obviously no good if its the cash you're after! Take some photo ID too if you're wanting cash as you can't get it otherwise.
We regularly go in and take a huge bag full of bits and easily get £50-£70. Hubs also buys his Xbox games this way. He's never bothered for latest releases so just has 3 or 4 at a time, trades them in and gets new ones when he's completed them. Rarely costs him a penny!
They're also definitely the best payers out there too xx
Hmm will have a think and suppose will have to sort the stuff out that want to get rid of first!
Be careful if you buy back from CEX though - some of their discs are appalling quality! We've had a few experiences of broken games and horribly scratched discs. On a couple of occasions I had to take cash instead of trade as all the copies of the game I wanted were in such bad condition.
If its games you are getting rid of, quite a few shops (gamestation did this and I think game will now) pricematch CEX so you get what CEX would pay plus an extra quid. We then discovered that Grainger Games offer to beat any cash/trade price in town by a £1 so we ended up getting an extra £2 on all our games!
I have tried magpie and it does work (the prices are oddly variable!). You could enter everything into the magpie app then get a quote from CEX and see which is best? x
Ooh I forgot! Try amazon marketplace. I have sold a lot on there and some titles bizarrely go for quite a good price, especially more unusual CDs and books! Amazon take a small cut but pay you for postage. Worth a look? x
Am making a start on this today...honest I am Am liking the sound of amazon marketplace for books as get stuff off there for myself and boys and will check around for best prices of stuff. Thanks for the help folks wouldn't have thought of some of the places without the ideas given here. Even though I shop on Amazon I hadn't thought of selling on it!
I've got some stuff ready for Magpie, a few books for Amazon and a lot of boxes and piles of stuff lol getting there slowly I sppose! Its neverending though. Have got the living room painted at least now got to wait for the new sofa to come and sort out what furniture we want etc
Well I made a grand total of 16.66 on Magpie selling cd's lol!
Am at the de-cluttering again/still! Its a nightmare! Especially as hubby and I seem to have opposite ideas of what should and shouldn't chuck!
