Selling Tips

I've been trying to sell a bunch of stuff we have but aren't using, but I'm having next to no luck. We of it (like a baby swing we used exactly three times) is big so we can't ship it. I'm just so frustrated with it all N I want it gone. But I want to recoup whatever we can from it all, ya know? Any advice?

If you can'to e it on CL- your
Price is probably too high. People over value their stuff. And it's annoying. I do not care what you paid. I don't care how many times you used it. I want to see the savings in buying a used product. And savings is not usually Just $20 off a baby swing (or whatever. Just an example)

Do you have pictures? A phone number listed? People like that

Re: Selling Tips

I would look up on CL what similar items are going for to be sure you're not too high. I usually say I will make a deal if you are buying more than one item from us. Also, I list multiple cities the person can pick it up in (where we live, where DH works, where I work).
Get $10 to spend at Vitacost & get free dipes, wipes, vitamins, food - you name it!

Could you do a yard sale with some other neighbors, friends or family?
