I usually hand it down to my Mom or Girlfriend or even my friends. Either that or I give it to goodwill

I'm feeling an impending yard sale...from my experience, it's worth doing one before you dump all of it on craigslist. You might be able to snag some impulse buyers and make more on any given item :)

Friends, or goodwill. Occasionally, I'll hit the restore. Just no on the salvation army.

Never been an eBay or yardsale person. Too much effort; I'm happy with the donation tax break.

I used to Ebay. But then it started to be scammy.
I went over to Craigslist, but some of those people would flake and not sow up.
If it's of any substantial value, I will take it to a specialty store (video games or electronics).
Most everything else goes to Goodwill.

We have a "swap shop" at our transfer station (also called the dump) - people drop off or pick up whatever they want - free. Works pretty well.

Craigslist can be very efficient/worth the hassle once you fine tune your listings and the way you deal with people. For instance all of my deals say:

"PICK UP ONLY/PRICE IS FIRM/NO TRADES, AVAILABLE AT X AND Y LOCATIONS AT [INSERT TIMES] - CALL/TEXT ME AT [INSERT GOOGLE VOICE NUMBER]", and I stick to my rules.

I can usually tell now when I have a truly interested buyer and someone who is going to flake on me..

Listia, paperbackswap, ARC thrift stores. I'm over trying to sell on ebay, although I still shop there. I've tried craigslist and freecycle, but they're more trouble than they're worth.

eBay & Craigslist, depending on the size of the item. I've run numerous things on eBay Classified, with absolutely zero sales.

eBay. The fees are outrageous, but it's relatively convenient.

It's either that or it gets donated to Goodwill.

I prefer Craigslist for something that you know will be locally sought. However, for obscure items, I use eBay. I can't stand the percentage they take (between final value fees and Paypal fees, they take a nice cut), but the thing that REALLY burns me is their newer format, which makes it hard for me as a seller OR buyer to find what I'm looking for. Not sure why they messed with it, but man, it's bad.

Thanks for the tip on Amazon. Maybe I'll try them next time...

eBay is the place you are looking for.

Really? No one else uses Amazon Marketplace?

@jeremytheindian: I have used it a few times and probably won't again. Their fees are high and they hold your funds for unnecessary long times. I think that I had to wait 30 days on both of my transactions before they dispersed the money I sold and they took a pretty decent sized chunk out of what I sold. I would just as soon sell it on craigslist or to the guy in the alley behind peking chinese restaurant downtown around 3am.

I usually give away or donate stuff. If it's a bigger ticket item I use Craigslist. I used to do EBay but I don't like to hassle with the mail. I have an Etsy store for my jewelry but I don;t keep up with it.

Sometimes it's just easier to to use Amazon... although for higher dollar items I use CL.
