100daysmedaiLet’s think about something for a minute. Think about every CD, DVD, and book you have sitting in your house and basement right now. Now, try to guess how many of those have not been used in the last year. I’m willing to bet that it’s a substantial percentage!

Selling your used CDs, DVDs, and books is a fast and easy way to make some holiday money off of things you no longer use. If you have video games, you may be able to sell those as well. Set all of the media you want to donate into different stacks—one for books, one for DVDs, and one for CDs. You can go through all of the CDs and DVD with a microfiber cloth, rubbing away any obvious scratches on the surface of the DVD. It takes extra time for a store clerk to inspect these, and saving time is helpful to you and to them.

You can either sell  on Amazon or take your books and other media to a specialty used bookstore to sell them. Make sure to bring your newer books, as those typically earn you more money. If you have bookworms on your Christmas list, think about getting a store credit for all of the books you’re bringing in, instead of cash. You usually get more money when you take in-store credit, and you can get more books for your loved ones.
