Knowing how to sell stuff you no longer want or need can be very helpful in being a Family CEO. There are tons of places to sell stuff – both online and offline – but eBay is an important one. How many times have you heard someone say, ‘Just sell it on eBay” or “Why […]
There are a number of things you can do with empty printer cartridges. You can recycle them, refill them, and even return them to big box office supply stores for a credit on future purchases.

I loved this guest post at Man vs. Debt about paying off debt by selling on Ebay. The author paid off $15,000 in student loans in nine months by selling stuff she had laying around. I did something similar one year when I financed Christmas by selling on Ebay. A lot is written about staring […]
