Looking for Extra Money? - Selling on EBay Part 4 - Stuff that Kids can Sell

It is amazing what you can find for sale on eBay. Which means the reverse is also true: It is amazing what you can sell on eBay!

Help your kids think out of the box and together you can sell many things on eBay. Remember, that you must be of a certain age to have an account on eBay. However, working as a team, you and your kid can learn a lot about money by selling a few items that you may already have.

There are many people who make selling on eBay a business. This usually involves making or buying items on the cheap and then selling them for a profit.

Other people sell on eBay merely as a hobby, or as an occasional means to get some cash. This usually involves finding items from around your house and then selling them rather than storing, yard selling, or merely giving them away.

Here are some ideas of things you may already have that you can sell:

  • outgrown clothes

  • out grown shoes

  • out grown coats

  • Toys

  • books

  • DVDs

  • CDs

  • Collections

  • Costumes

  • Backpacks/bags

  • Games

  • Computer Games

  • New Stuffed Animals

  • Baby Gear: Diapers, bottles, cups, blankets, etc.

  • Coupons

  • Gift Cards

  • Knick Knacks

If you find that you have a lot of low value items, you can group them together into "lots." This saves you time in listing, and it creates a better value for your customers. Here are some good examples of "lots" that may not sell very well by themselves, but do great in a group:

  • Used clothes

  • small books

  • used movies

  • small toys

  • art/craft supplies

  • seeds

  • coupons

  • Learning Kits

You, of course, will have to look around and see what you have available to sell, and then compare it with what is selling. Just because nobody else is selling it, doesn't mean nobody wants. That may make it more valuable.


  1. One of my nieces wanted to upgrade her handheld video game system. She's too young to have an eBay account so her parents put her old toys, etc. that she wanted to sell on eBay for her. She was able to earn enough money to buy the new game system. And she learned a good lesson too.

  2. That's awesome! its a good way for kids to be able to geta good idea of what "fair market value" is for the things they want, or want to get rid of.
