I've sold books, CDs ,videos and DVDs at and think it's worth my time. These are books that I want to get out of the house in the first place. I ordered very cheap mailers from and ordered enough things so the shipping was free. I have a post office on my way to work and then another one close to home that I use on Saturdays.

I have found responsive both as a seller and a purchaser. Do things sell fast ? Sometimes yes and sometimes no. I haven't seen a pattern and I've listed things there since about March, I think. My sales have increased each month but I have more items listed each month.

My reason to do it is to feel like someone is paying me to clean out my house. I have considered trying to buy books at garage sales and resell them but I don't think I have the time for it at the moment.
