Good news I suppose, obviously more would be better. Unfortunately Notorious BIG was wrong because in my eyes, more money means less problems. The Personal Belongings category is obviously an estimattion, but I rccently began cleaning my room and uncovered what I like to call a heap of used textbooks that is worth at LEAST $250, and those are the only ones I've sold so far. Speaking of textbooks, it's pretty ridiculous to try to sell them back to the Textbook Annex at my school because they literally offer you chump change for something that someone somewhere put their heart and soul into. I came across Book Scouter (www.bookscouter.com) which is a PHENOMENAL website. You type in the ISBN number of the book and it gives you quotes from 30 different companies that buy books. Usually I choose one of the top three (pay attention to the consumer reviews) and compare that price to what I can get on Amazon Marketplace. The benefit of using Book Scouter is you don't have to compete with other sellers and wait around for someone to buy the book, and you also don't have some third party (Amazon) skimming a commission of the sale.
No song or quote today because, well, I'm just feeling that lazy. Lo Siento.
