This morning I am going to tell you about a very useful website I have recently discovered. As regular readers of Fashion-mommy know, I am a huge fan of recycling and upcycling goods, I avidly sort out my rubbish, my wardrobe is regularly culled and unwanted stuff given to Charity Shops, and I am forever filling charity bags that land on my doorstep. But Website Music Magpie may well change the way I look at recycling in that you can actually make money from all manner of things that you may previously have given away, from old clothing to DVDs, from games and consoles to recycling your old mobile phone. You can even sell Nintendo Wii games and consoles and then put the money towards something else that you now really want.
Making money from your unwanted stuff is very easy with Music Magpie. When you visit the website, a pop-up window allows you to quickly find the value of items you are planning to sell. For CDs, DVDs and games, you simply enter the barcode number, for clothes you enter the brand and the garment type, for technical/electrical items you enter the make and model. From this simple information, you can get an instant valuation. If you decide the price is right 9to quote that 1980s classic quiz show…) you can then either send your item, or if it is a big item, or maybe you’re selling lots of things, you can have the item collected. The great news is that both the ‘send’ service, and the courier service are absolutely free of charge, with the courier service also being fully insured for loss and damage.
Payment can be made in the form of a bank transfer or a cheque. You can also have your payment in e-vouchers, perfect if you have your eye on something that you particularly want to buy. (They do M&S vouchers which are always popular. Or, if you are feeling particularly philanthropic, you can donate your earnings to one of the charities that Music Magpie supports, including the Terrence Higgins Trust, various animal and children’s charities.
So, what exactly are you waiting for? You can get that new bag you have your eye on by selling some of that overflowing wardrobe. Or get your youngest that Nintendo Wii game by getting rid of some of the games that he/she has already mastered, or simply got bored with. Whatever you want a bit of spare cash for, Music Magpie can address all your needs very quickly and simply. What’s not to love?
