Craigslist and Swapacd.com

As you have seen I got an Ipod Touch after a few startup issues, mainly iTunes which I still hate to use, I got most of my music organized and under control to get into my Ipod Touch. So time to sell our CD collection, as it only takes up space and we won’t probably use those anymore.

So the wife made a big list on craigslist and I was amazed that within a couple of hours we had sold over 150 CD’s, now 1 week later we have only about 60 left mostly the CD’s everyone has.

image  Then the remainder of our CDs we have listed on a website called Swapacd.com. Its like a big matching site for books and cds, people who want your CD are automatically notified when you post a CD and when they agree you can print out a wrapper label completed with all information about the person and sent the CD and its front/back cover. It costs about 75 cents postage and then you get 1 credit for which you can request a CD you want to have + 0.49 cents per CD which is the fee the buyer pays to Swapacd.com.

I posted about 70 CDs and so far about 24 need to be sent by Monday, so that works great, after I have my credits I will request the CDs we would like to have.

I think this is a cheap and excellent way to increase your music collection……
