Hey, this Craigslist thing is neat!
So when I sold our 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI and 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring last month, removing and uninstalling everything was a new experience for me. Advertising the parts and mods I had for sale was also something I had never done before--happily, it's been a good experience. I've always believed that if something is priced properly be it a car or a house or a set of rubber mats, it will sell even if the market is slow. I've never been one for delayed gratification and I figured that since I already got my enjoyment from the modifications I did, there was no reason for me to try to re-coup all the money that I already spent. I priced my items for a quick sale and I wasn't disappointed. That makes me happy and I'm sure the buyers were happy, too.
I've created this file to keep track of the non-fuel costs of our Denali XL. So far, I've come out ahead by about $500 after buying the accessories I did for our 2007 GMC Yukon XL Denali and selling items from our STI and Odyssey. That's not too bad.
In fact I had so much fun selling stuff on the Subaru and Honda forums that I decided to venture out to Craigslist and sell a 10" Dobsonian telescope we had sitting around. We bought it two Christmas's ago for our kids, but soon realized that it wasn't a good idea and other than 1 full moon, 1 lunar eclipse and 1 half-moon, it hadn't been used at all. I sold it today and it will definitely help pay for the set of winter rims and tires I'm planning on buying for The Beast. I am now also looking for the next thing of ours to sell on Craigslist :0)
