Make Money From Your Old Items

Everyone has something in their home that they no longer require from Cd’s to Clothes.  There are many options for selling or trading your items but using a buying/selling site like Ebay or Gumtree can be a buyers market as everyone wants things for pennies.

If you’re looking for a hassle free way to sell your stuff Music Magpie is the place to go. I’ve previously used Music Magpie to sell old CD’s and found the service very quick and easy to use, I was very pleased to find out that you can now sell other items and have a few things in mind to send to them. There are a few simple things you need to know about Music Magpie :

To sell an item you need to enter each of the items you want to sell into the Valuation Engine to get an instant price, you can then decide if you wish to sell or not.

Sending your items is free with the Music Magpie free send service or free courier service.

You can get paid by Bank Transfer, Cheques, in e-Vouchers or donate to charity

You can now scan in your CDs, DVDs and Games quickly and easily, complete your trade, edit your details and check the status of your order using the free Iphone, Ipad, Ipod or android app.

You can now make extra cash from your old CDs, DVDs and Games with Music Magpies Facebook Store – so you can keep chatting to your friends, and never have to leave Facebook!

So you know how Music Magpie works but what exactly can you sell?

I only listen to music on my laptop or Ipad so Cd’s are something I can definitely get rid of.  I have a number or duplicate DVD’s in my collection and Lucie has DS games and Wii games that she is now too old for so we will ads these to our sale pile.



We don’t have many electronic items to sell but I do have a couple of old hair straighteners we can add to our sale pile.



I have no tech items to sell but it’s good to know that Music Magpie accept a wide range of items as you can see above.

clothes to t clothesI have around 8 black bags of old clothing in my house that I’ve been waiting to get rid of, It’s going to take me a while but I can’t wait to find out what my old clothes are worth!

I do understand that a lot of sellers do prefer to use a site like Ebay where you can add reserve prices to your items and set your starting price to ensure you get what you think your item is worth but I personally think Music Magpie is a great alternative to Ebay for the following reasons:

No seller fees (we all like a free service)

No feedback ( We all know that certain members leave unjust feedback)

No postal costs (Royal Mail prices are currently scandalous which puts people off buying heavy items)

No fancy packaging (Decent packaging costs a fortune, a lot of sellers resort to sending items wrapped in bin bags? which can lose you feedback points)

No paypal charges (Not only do you pay fees to sell the item but you pay fees to get your payment)

I hope I have convinced you to give Music Magpie a try, I’m now going to sort through the bags of stuff in my home!
