De-cluttering


It looks like I'm moving house in early december to a place that is better value than our current apartment, and possibly more liveable - although you never know till you get there..


So I'm hoping to get rid of a lot of my 'stuff'. I've moved house now around 4 times in the last 2 years and I'm really over the packing/moving process.. So today I went through my books and CDs - I'd like to get rid of a whole bunch of them.

Does anyone know of a quick way of selling CDs and books? I was imagining some second hand book/record store might like what I have - lots of the cds are quite decent, I just never listen to them, same with the books -they're just dead weight. Normally I would give them to vinnies etc but if I sold them it would could help cover moving costs.

you could try ebay, might take a bit more effort with posting things out and taking photos/writing descriptions. Otherwise 2nd hand stores would probably pick them up in one go - but might get a little bit less money. I've been thinking of doing the same. Might offer some to friends that might like them.

I once took all my old books to a second hand store, and they only offered me $15 for the lot - there were about 20 books in the pile, some of them barely read!

Thanks for the suggestion Kim - I did think about ebay, but then I was like argh so much work! Also we're moving in two weeks, so probably not enough time. Will see though.

Soph - $15! Yikes. Yeah, half of them are textbooks, and they cost me an arm and a leg. I hope they consider that!
