Spring Cleaning and Garage Sales -- Online
Inevitably when you start spring cleaning, you end up with a bunch of things you've acquired over the years that you don't really need anymore.
When I found myself with a large number of things to sell last year, I did my best advertising everything on Kijiji. I sold most things in the end, but it was a real pain updating and managing the individual ads, marking things off after they were sold.
It was also a bit annoying that the site was plastered in multiple flashing banner ads and sponsored links trickily designed to look like regular listings.
So I did what any self-respecting computer geek would do, and built my own solution to the problem -- BuyMyStuff.com.
To be clear, it is not the best place to sell a car. It is also not the place to look for a home or apartment. Don't go there expecting to find personal ads or job listings, either.
It is not at all like your typical free online classifieds site.
Instead, it is designed exclusively to enter, track, and manage the sale of multiple items -- just like an in-person garage sale.
The site has been growing steadily, now with hundreds of registered users and items for sale all over the world.
So if you're cleaning up and find some stuff lying around that you'd like to sell, hop over to http://buymystuff.com/stuff/sell -- give it a try, and let me know what you think!
