Many people talk about how great using Ebay is to sell unwanted stuff from around your home, but I think that Craigslist is better, mainly because it's FREE!!! I tried using Ebay to sell a few items, and I had to pay a $4 listing fee, and it didn't even sell within the time frame that I was given. I would have had to continue to pay $4 to list it until it sold, and who knows how long that would have taken.
I think Craigslist is much better, because it's free, and usually, local. You can find a public place to meet up to exchange the goods, or mail it off. I was able to sell my son's shoes that he had outgrown for $25 a pair on Craigslist. A local kid's consignment store only offered $2 for the same shoes. So, I'm a big fan of Craigslist, because you can sell quickly if it's a hot item, not worry about shipping things off if you don't want to, and get the best price for the item. Not bad, for something that's just collecting dust around your home anyways!
