Do you sell your old things?

I know it's a wide question so anything that is literally junk we can discount for the purposes of this poll.

I tend to keep boxes for things I use for this specific reason. A lot of my "used" items are in good condition so it makes sense to keep the box and maximize any money I can get for them.

Just wondered how many people can be bothered and how they do it.

I only sell junk if I've got a lot of it and I'm sure that it works. If I have any doubts I will not sell it, as it's not worth the earache afterward.

I would like to, actually, but don't really know the best way to go about doing it :s

usually, if it's junk, and i can get a couple of quid for it (sometimes a lot more) then it's worth it imo

i always work out if it's worth it though, otherwise it just goes in the bin.. i don't count my time!

No, I just give it away to relatives or friends. No warranty, no support.

My tech stuff stays, the rest usually, too as I seem to only buy things that remain relevant to me.

We sell stuff it is worth selling. Craigslist for big stuff and Amazon Marketplace for small stuff. A lot of "junk" isn't worth the time, so we just either donate it to GoodWill or throw it away.

If something is worth more than $50, I'll put it up on Ebay or Craigslist. Otherwise I just donate it to Good Will.

I've sold some stuff I had no use for.

Many things I just put out for trash.

But I confess I keep many things, 'just in case ...'. :p

I live off the supply & junk chain. Buy the shiny new thing, and 3 months later sell it to buy the newer iPad shiny thing.

If I do sell stuff, I only sell it to friends/family and with a heavy discount (or free)

Yes, as long as it's worth my time. I just got a new router and put my old one on eBay. It was giving me a bit of trouble, and I listed it and described the exact condition it is in and sold it for $50. After fees and shipping that's $35. Listing something on eBay only takes a few minutes and another few minues to box it, slap a label on it, and put it in the outgoing mail in my apartment.

I almost always sell my old electronics, I am not going to ever use them again and they're usually worth a decent amount of money, such as old phones and computers.

You could donate it to me, lol! :p (J/K) I usually give my old tech to family and/or friends who might need it, otherwise, I just chunk it into the garbage. :-/

Same here. I never sell it. I probably should. That might be why I never have any money.

I just giv it away to whoever needs it. Mates or a charity.

I'm too lazy to work for a few coppers.

I sell my stuff primarily because I include what I'll get back from it as part of whether or not I can afford it. For me I'm looking at selling my Lumia 900 once the 920 or 8S comes in stock so then I can use the money I get from that to put towards the cost of purchasing a new phone. When it comes to non-technology stuff I tend to only replace something when it is completely had it - to the point that no one would want to buy it other than to use it (in the case of a desk or book shelf) for firewood.

It feeds my gadget addiction.. I can tell you I don't go broke by doing it. $30-50 for the newest shiny thing is much better than $500. A&E made a show about living off selling old junk.. I think they called it pawn stars, and several YouTube videos have proven it to be staged.
