Ack! I can’t believe it’s “Back-to-School” time already. Some schools here in AZ are already back and most start within the next two weeks. My teacher friends and family all are headed back right now. And, the BIG kicker for me is that Big Brother starts Kindergarten in less than 2 weeks! Cue the tears and our first (of many, many years to come) of the back-to-school prepping frenzy. Clothes/uniforms, backpacks, lunches, supplies…oh my!

Whether you’re dealing with this back-to-school time with a Kindergartner or a college freshman, one place you might not have thought about is eBay.

There are a lot of back-to-school possibilities to consider (whether you’re buying or selling)– backpacks, lunch boxes, back-to-school clothes/school uniforms, calculators, books, and more! For older students, consider using eBay to upgrade technological devices like computers or graphing calculators! If you’re looking for any of these sorts of things, I definitely recommend browsing around on eBay. And, those of you interested in making some extra back-to-school cash should consider selling some of these items you might have around the house. Remember, the average family has $7000 worth of unused items in their house!!  If you’re new to selling on eBay, you can check out these beginner’s tips for sell­ing here.

What’s YOUR favorite place for “back-to-school” items?
