Now, how will getting organized help me save for Disney? Is what you may be asking. Getting organized actually accomplishes many things, it not only frees up your time but your space too. Having less stuff simply means less to take care of and keep up with, and more time for planning your Disney vacation. Plus, selling your unwanted and no longer used items can earn you money for Disney.
How to get started:
As you organize your home, start a to-sell pile (and a donate pile). Selling items that are in good condition are best with fewer chance of complaints or returns for online sales. The acceptation to this rule is selling vintage items, where some wear and tear is expected.
Where To Sell Unwanted Items:
- Yard Sale
- Facebook Marketplace
Traditional yard sales are still a great way to unload many items at once. Have tables to display smaller items and put larger and more colorful items out front to draw people to stop. Make sure to put prices on each item, or place items in same price range together. However, they work best for people who live in populated and easy to get to locations. Plus, weather can often put a damper on this idea.
For those in a rural area, or not wanting to wait for ideal yard sale months, consider setting up an eBay account. It costs nothing to start and you get 50 free listings a month, paying a small percentage only if your item sells. Download the eBay app to list quicker. You can sell your items worldwide.
Poshmark is another great online commerce site to sell with, for clothing and accessories. Poshmark will be best for fashion items such as shoes, clothes, purses and jewelry. Sell to anyone in the USA. If you have high-end items and top brand clothing, Poshmark could earn you more than eBay.
Welcome to the internet, and the world of online yard sales. If you live in or near a major city, try Facebook Marketplace. This is especially great for larger items or breakables, that are harder or impossible to ship.
