craigslist

As a tech guy, I tend to collect way too much “stuff,” whether it be the latest iPhone case, or some other random tech gadget that I impulsively bought on Kickstarter. My wife is making me get rid of some of the things that I hardly use, and so I started my quest to find a good way to make some cash selling it. I could go the eBay route, but that takes too much time and it is such a hassle for smaller things. I could also use Craigslist, but you just never know what kind of people you will find on there.

Then the other day I got an invite to try out Tangibles, which I forgot I had signed up for a while back. They just launched and I decided to give it a spin to see if it would be worth my time. We did a review of Yard Sale, which is somewhat similar, but I didn’t get many hits there, so I decided to give this one a try to see if I could have more luck getting rid of my stuff. (more…)

Online garage sales can be scary places to shop, and not just for the reasons that immediately come to mind, like the murder reasons or the grab-your-stuff-and-run-without-paying reasons. There’s also the complete anonymity of online shopping. Can you trust the seller? Will the buyer actually show up with money or try to make a shady trade at the last minute? And then there’s the never ending Craigslist haggle emails!

Yardsale wants to make online neighborhood selling easier and feel like you’re actually selling to your neighbors, not meeting a shifty guy you found under the bridge. Originally only available in and around San Francisco, Yardsale has recently expanded to include the entire United States. Can Yardsale be a real alternative to all that Craigslisting, though?

In 2008, I purchased a shiny new iPhone 3G for myself and my wife and spent a few hundred dollars in the process. Ever since then I’ve been able to buy each new iPhone and it paid for itself within an hour, maybe two at the most. In fact, sometimes I’ve even turned a profit.

So how was I able to do this? How could I possibly pay nothing for a new iPhone? Well truth be told, I’m not really paying nothing, because there is an up front cost. But in the end, being payment neutral is a very nice thing. Heck, even getting some money back is a step in the right direction, right? Let’s talk about it after the jump.
