Good pictures will help clothes sell themselves on eBay!

As I make the switch from my winter to spring wardrobe, I found myself with the decision to donate or sell my clothes. Over dinner with my best friend, she told me how she has made hundreds of dollars recently selling clothes on eBay. Now I’ll admit, it has been years since I’ve ventured onto the online marketplace and I remember the selling process being tedious and complicated. My friend assured me that with the new eBay mobile app, it takes only a few minutes to list and sell. So I gave it a shot and quickly learned why some of my items were selling and some weren’t. It’s all about marketing folks!

Move over Helpful Heloise! Bargain Babe has 288 tips for alternative uses for household products! via Shutterstock

Do you have helpful alternate uses for household products? My grandpa used to put wooden handles on fish hooks to make a handy coffee filter pick-er-up-ers. My grandma used coffee filters for everything from polishing glassware to a quick cheap cover for microwaving food. She also taught me that when I only need half an onion in a recipe, to store the other half in a mason jar with a paper towel to keep it fresh and keep the fridge odor free.  It seems our elders knew all kinds of helpful homemaking hacks!

Megan’s post, 10 new uses for mason jars caught my eye the other day. It reminded me of some of these hacks and kicked off my scavenger hunt for all the great ideas in the other “alternative uses” articles here.  It never ceases to amaze me how many helpful, money saving articles there are here on BargainBabe! I’ve rounded them up for you in today’s post!
