Quick tip – people will buy anything (if it is cheap enough)

After selling junk for a few years now, I have learned never to underestimate the value of junk. Case in point, my wife and I sold a rusty old 1985 Ford truck for $250. We had over two dozen responses from buyers but a single regret, not asking for more money. Other items sold to perplexingly eager buyers, an original xbox that sounded like a helicopter, a paper grocery sack full of movies in the now outdated DVD format, and a big box of used incandescent light bulbs from my wife's old condo. All of these items could have sold for more if only we'd known someone actually wanted them. I wonder how much I can get for a defunct generation 1 TIVO?

Huzaa to the junk market!
