Tip #3: Sell something on eBay today

Today’s tip is to sell something from your house on eBay. But surprisingly, it doesn’t really matter what you sell.

Ramit’s point is not that you will make real money selling on eBay — remember, the emphasis of this series if frugality, cutting costs, not earning more — it’s that you will prove to yourself that you can take actions that can have constructive outcomes.   Sacrifice something … by selling something you have but do not need.  The comments to the post are also important if you decide you do want to try this tip out — discussions about time costs and commissions to the hosting sites; some differences among sites like eBay, Craigs List and amazon.com marketplace;  and pricing strategy.
