If you're like me, you've got PILES of stuff lying around your house that never gets used. I really am trying to get better, but two small children, a dog and several jobs leaves little time for purging and organizing. Hopefully once the girls are a bit older, I'll find the time to really minimize what we own. I find I breathe a huge sigh of relief when another bag of stuff exits my home. And bonus if the stuff you own is worth something to someone else! Not only are you reusing or recycling for the environment, but you're also spending less money by purchasing used. My husband and I saved up for our flat screen TV by selling things around our house and putting the money we made into a jar. You'd be surprised how quickly it adds up!
Selling used just got easier in Ottawa, with a new free classifieds website called Postedad.ca. The website is locally owned and managed, and their kids and baby section was planned with parents' needs in mind.
There is no charge for ads, and you can upload as many photos of your stuff as you'd like. There's also some neat features, like alert settings for new ads and reward points for promoting or highlighting your ads. The points are gained simply by registering on the site, posting ads and referring friends.
With this in mind, I'm off to sort through some baby stuff... :)
