An Extra $12.18 Burning a Hole in my Pocket

A few months ago I read an article in a magazine about ways to clear clutter and make some extra money. It was perfect for me since I have tons of clutter and would love some extra money.

I tried out their suggestion to sell your used books to a company called Cash4Books. You enter your ISBN numbers on the back of the books and see how much they'll pay you. Then, if you're interested, you print a label that they provide and ship your books off. I did it about six weeks ago and yesterday I cashed my check for $12.18. I know it isn't much, but the best part of it for me is cleaning out some clutter.

The prices they'll pay for books varies. They didn't want most of my books--not sure what that says about my taste--and for some they only offered 10 cents, so I kept those and will be donating them to my local library for their annual book sale--I hope they can at least get a quarter for them!

I didn't get my check right away and I did have to e-mail to follow up, so if you do it you'll probably want to keep track, but overall I thought it was a good way to get some extra money and clean house! Check it out by clicking on the link below.

Now if only I could find someone who wanted to buy all my clothes from the early 90s that I can't quite seem to part with...

If / when you have some more books, you can try using to check prices from about 30 sites, including cash4books. They have consistently been the one of the best and most competitive sites, but it pays to shop around, as you can sometimes find another site that is paying twice as much.
