The weather is heating up and many of us are looking ahead to plan our summer vacations. A trip to Hawaii, sleep-away camp and a backpacking trip in the great outdoors may be the best part of summer, however vacations can put a big dent in summer budgets. Parents can start selling unneeded items around the house on eBay to help fund their summer vacations. For example, selling unused golf clubs could put you one step closer to renting that cottage on the beach.
Why not have a virtual garage sale? I know in our community we’re having one garage sale this year and due to HOA rules we’re not allowed anything but one Saturday in July. That leaves me with a house full of extra stuff that I’ll badly want to get rid of. I at least want to try and sell these things before I just donate them, especially the new items. So why not fund a weekend getaway with my sales to Seattle! Yes, we’re selling for a family fun trip to Seattle.
- An (eBay) Sale Away From Summer Fashion Maxi dresses, color blocked skirts, strappy sandals…the list goes on. Warm weather sparks the desire to upgrade your summer wardrobe, however your wallet may not appreciate the shopping spree. Parents can clean out their closets to fund new seasonal additions. That coat you havent worn in years can fund a brand new floral dress thats perfect for a warm day.
- Funding Summer Fun Summer means time with the family, a break from school and free time! You dont need to head out of town to take advantage of the warm weather. There are so many fun, but costly, activities right in your backyard. Amusement parks, backyard BBQs, summer sports and trips to the water parks add up, however selling household items on eBay can fund these pricey activities. A closet full of outgrown 6x clothes could turn into a trip to the zoo.
I have one $100 eBay gift card to give away to one lucky reader!
