IDLE RESOURCES TURNED MUTUAL FUND INVESTMENT
I was moved by this story that I’ve shared on my previous post. So I began checking our idle resources.
As a newbie mom, I love buying cute items for my son when he was still a baby, being a first time parent, I’m always excited to get something new for him.
But since babies grew up so fast, many of his clothes doesn’t fit him anymore, he is not into rattles nor play gym now so even outgrew his baby toys and books.
Until I thought of selling his pre-loved baby items online – in a mommy’s Facebook group and in buy & sell websites.
It is one of our financial goals this year to open a new mutual fund investment for our son. We’re thankful that God opened a door through selling pre-loved items, we’re able to start it now.
Sharing with you some tips in selling your pre-loved items online:
- Schedule your de-clutter day
Separate your items Donate, Keep and Sell.
- Join Facebook Groups that caters buy, sell and trading of items and websites too
Examples are Shoppee, OLX.ph, TBTM Mommy Club and more
- Take a good photo of your pre-loved items
Make sure your photo can make the buyers appreciate the item, be honest in selling too – admit if there are flaws due to storage if there is any
- Follow the rule of thumb , sell at least 50% off the original price
Give other moms an opportunity to get best deal items from you, give freebies as much as possible.
- Separate the pre-loved items earning from your budget
You should have a clear goal too when selling your pre-loved items, in our case, we wanted to use it to open a mutual fund for our son.
