Don't sell yourself short
If reduce, recycle, reuse is your mantra, then take your game to the next level when it comes to selling items you no longer need. Instead of saving up for your next (marginally profitable and exhausting) sidewalk sale, for instance, start tapping eBay and Craigslist for more targeted sales of big-ticket and specialized items. Make sure your item has all its parts, is clean, and in good condition. Remove personal information from electronic and other items. Today, challenge yourself to be a little more entrepreneurial when it comes to passing on the good stuff — it just might pay off for you!
