Clean Pools

Clean gutters

Just like eBay, Craigslist is a place where you can sell just about anything for no cost of advertising. Be smart who you work with, meet in a well lite central place (perhaps the police station) and have someone go with you. Try hooking up in person with the buyer and get cash. There are lots of scams online, if you get someone asking you to hold a check or your product that they are out of state, it’s a scam. List items as first come, first serve.

Craft Fairs
Are you a crafty person? Check out your local churches and granges for local craft fairs to sell your DIY projects. Check for the dates of events locally. And if you don’t sell all your wares, you can sell them on Ebay, Etsy, Craigslist and your virtual garage sales.
