CENT$ for CENTERPIECE$

Once the cake has been eaten and the guests have gone home, you are left hap­pily mar­ried to the love of your life. And with a lot of boxes of stuff that you have no idea what to do with. If you are like 90% of brides across Amer­ica, you now have col­lec­tions of nap­kins, run­ners, twin­kle lights, and charg­ers just gath­er­ing dust in your attic. Here are a few ways to turn those into cold hard cash!

The most impor­tant part about sell­ing online is to make sure that you have pic­tures of each item. First, sift through all of your wed­ding pho­tos to see what your pho­tog­ra­pher cap­tured. It is eas­i­est to sell some­thing from a pro­fes­sional image rather than an iPhone pic­ture of it sit­ting on your kitchen table. Next, take inven­tory of the items. Count how many items, take mea­sure­ments of size and write it all down! This will help you to cre­ate an accu­rate list­ing when you go to post your items.

There are tons of sites that you can sell your items on but here are a few of the top ones to get you started: Of course, our old friend eBay is a great option too! Some of these sites do charge a fee on each sale so make sure to check that out when you sign up for each one. There are also great apps like Offer Up & Let Go for iPhone & Android users!

And hey, this isn’t just for peo­ple who are sell­ing items. If you are still look­ing for the per­fect “Choose a Seat Not a Side” sign then don’t down play a good bar­gain!
