Thank you Facebook Marketplace for sponsoring this post. There’s something for everyone!
It really is kind of amazing to see just how much STUFF you accumulate once you have a baby. Between clothes, swings, bouncers, highchairs, and toys (oh, the toys!), I felt like almost our entire storage area of our basement was completely filled to the brim. Literally!
Then, of course, if you know that you want to possibly try for another baby down the road, you hold onto it all and let it continue to accumulate as they continue to outgrow it all.
As for us? I was still holding onto all of our baby stuff up until very recently. I hesitated on getting rid of a lot of it for a long time, just in case of that teeny tiny chance that we may want to try for another baby. But at this point in our lives, Jay and I have decided that our little family most definitely feels complete as a group of four.
Well, okay, five if we’re counting Cody.
So once we finally made that decision and felt comfortable with it, I started to go into total clean out mode. All of that baby gear takes up some serious space!
We’ve been fortunate enough to loan out a number of baby items of ours to friends and family, but with the rest, I started using Facebook Marketplace to sell it.
Guys, I LOVE using Facebook Marketplace, and it’s one of the reasons I was so excited to collaborate with them on this post because I’ve already been using (and loving) it for so long!
It’s a SUPER easy and convenient way to discover, buy, and sell items. You don’t have to download another app or set up a new account, since it’s all right within your normal Facebook account. And posting things to sell is a breeze! Snap your pics, upload, set your price, choose a category, add some details, and you’re done.
Anyone who is interested in purchasing can contact you over Messenger, and you always have the ability to checkout a person’s public Facebook profile before deciding to sell to (or buy from) them.
I have sold SO many things this past year, between old baby things and toys that just never really got used, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have every single transaction work out super smoothly.
Then, whatever money I typically make from the sales gets put aside to go towards future items that the boys may need (clothes/diapers) or want (Christmas gifts). Seriously, I’m obsessed!
Have you tried buying or selling on Facebook Marketplace? I’d love to hear!!
