How much do you spend on baby clothes or children's toys?
Babies grow fast leaving behind a fair amount of outgrown baby clothes and a range of other items never to be used again.
Expensive accessories such as a baby walker, a pram or a pushchair are probably still as good as new, but no longer needed.
Toys for specific ages groups are left in great condition when your baby or child gets bored of them.
If you have cupboards full of toys or outgrown baby clothes stuffed at the back of every drawer, it's time to sell!
Outgrown baby clothes can still be in great condition.
Sell your baby clothes, toys or games
If your used stuff is still as good as new, or even if it isn't, there's no reason why you can't make good money selling it
second hand, so don't throw anything away yet!
Get together everything you don't need and separate the good condition items from the not so good. Create another pile of items to throw away such as marked clothes or broken toys.
Grading your items by separating them based on their condition will help put into perspective the price you should sell each item for.
With kids clothing, items like coats, shoes or baby designer pieces, can usually be sold individually, but standard items like leggings, tops or sleepsuits would be better sold as a bundle. £5 or £10 baby clothes bundles can sell fast so is a great way to create space quickly.
Second hand toys can be easier to price. Search the internet to see what price other people have set and do the same. For toys not perfect condition, reduce the price for a quick sale.
A fiver here and a couple of quid there soon add up to a nice profit when you are selling lots of items at the same time.

Best way to sell your baby clothes and other children's stuff online
Whether brand new or second hand, what matters most when selling online is that you put enough effort into your adverts. People glance once before moving onto the next advert, so you want yours to appeal before they click away.
Have an Effective Title
The first thing buyers see, and what they search for, is the title of your item for sale. If the title includes
relevant differentiating factors such as colour, gender, name or brand, your item may match more searches.
For example, to sell a pram, rather than simply using 'Pram' as the title, something like 'Pink Silver Cross pram' would be much better. Someone searching for 'pink pram' or 'silver cross pram' would see this before other prams.
Describe it Well
Describe what you are selling in detail to reassure the buyer they are making an informed decision. Include the size or dimensions, age range or other relevant specifications. It is important the buyer knows what they are agreeing to buy.
Add Search Words
When you list an item for sale on Buyanythinglocal, you can also add a list of your own 'search words'. These are other words you think will help buyers find your item, words that don't already appear in your title. Using the example above, the word 'pushchair' is a good word to help people find your pram and maybe also the words 'baby girl', since the pram is pink.
Set a Realistic Price
When selling second hand, always remember, you are selling clothes that your baby or toddler has outgrown or toys that are no
longer played with. They are of no use any more and they need to go. You can use the space for other things.
Be realistic with the price you set. It needs to be tempting to buyers, they are buying something used after all.
