The great cleanout: Getting cash for my old books

I’ve said before that life is hectic and I look for things to simplify.  I had the opportunity to pay someone to clean my house (and massage my body), and I am amazed at the difference in my kids.  They are much calmer in a cleaner and more organized house.

So, we continue the shredding, cleaning, donating our stuff in our attempt to simplify this crazy busy household.

I just put a new link on my page: “Cash 4 Books.”  I wanted to share this with you, as it’s been a great “pocket money maker” for me. Also, fyi, this is my first affiliate link, so I do get a referral fee if you do business with them.

Note: non fiction, text books, newer books (2008+) are the most likely to be accepted.

This is how it works:

You enter in the ISBN numbers of your books. The site tells you if they will accept your books and how much they will pay your for them.

When you’re done entering in the ISBN numbers, you can print out a shipping label.  If you have enough books, you get free postal service or free fed ex to their place.

Upon receipt of shipment, they either send you a check or they deposit the amount into your paypal account.

It’s easy.  I heard about them and decided to try it when my local thrift shops were overrun with books and therefore were no longer accepting my book donations.  I’ve made anywhere from $.50 to $7 per book.  I figure that’s better than a yard sale.

Back to decluttering…
