Don't waste your money: Sell valuables online

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Having a yard sale is the first thing that comes to mind when wanting to get rid of unwanted junk, but selling your things on the Internet may be more profitable.

Michael Jinks, a garage sale veteran, said too many people give away stuff at yard sales that may be rare. He said people should research possibly rare items on eBay or similar sites before selling them cheap at yard sales.

If you don't feel comfortable selling items online, estate selling services can do it for you. Some companies will catalog your old things and sell it for you.

However, Jinks said selling big bulky items is best to do at yard sales because you lose your profit in shipping.
