Finally packing up for the move to my first home! I have so much stuff I no longer need. Does anyone have any experience with selling old DVDs/video games?? Reviews are helpful!!! Also where should I donate clothes to? Salvation Army or is there some place where they may have better use for them. THANK YOU!!

I'm sure Goodwill would take it all but if you want to get a few bucks for the video stuff then either a Craigslist type site or perhaps the Flea Market..

For selling games and dvds, you might see if there is a Sound Exchange in your area.

Sound Exchange for sure for your DVD's. I don't know if they take games, but I believe I have seen them there. There are several locations. Sound Exchange Store Locations

As far as clothes, I would suggest Goodwill. If you have any name brand clothes, there are a few upscale thrift boutiques in S. Tampa. Sorry, I don't know of any specific ones. If you have teens clothes that are name brands and in good condition, try Plato's Closet. There are several locations.

maybe one of the local flea markets in the area has a vendor that would offer to purchase them in bulk

The Salvation Army or Goodwill are both good places to donate clothes. I don't know where you could sell the dvd's, but I wouldn't expect much. I've been paying about $3.50-$7 for fairly new releases.

Most pawn shops will take your dvds that are in good shape for about a buck each. If you have a good collection you can try to sell the whole thing on Craigslist, just be careful as Craigslist is its own world!
As for the clothes. If you have any newer style clothes that are in great shape go to Plato's Closet. They pay good money but they are very selective. Basically the clothes have to be in like new condition, must be name brand, and has to be in-style. Oh and I mean in-style for what an 18-24yr old would wear out. (I went once in college and was told my clothes were too "businessy" as they put it, for them. They took my Adidas stuff though, just not the slacks and button-ups.) Whatever you have left you can donate to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Lighthouse Ministries, E.C.H.O, or simply drop them at a clothing donation box located in various parking lots throughout the city. Don't forget you get to claim your donations come tax time!

I do suggest having a nice advertised garage sale before anything I listed above! Good luck

Amazon digital content is doing good so you can try to sell it on amazon.com but you have to bear some selling cost from amazon. The other nice option i feel can be [url=http://framt.com/sell-your-stuff[/url], this is new upcoming website which is offering selling of products free of any cost, no listing and no success fees, but its new so having less traffic but contrary less internal competition as on biggies like amazon or ebay.

I've had some pretty good luck selling (mostly books) through Amazon, but the fees are pretty hefty. What's nice, though, is you can see what the other sellers are asking. If the lowest price for your DVD is $6, you might be able to make a couple bucks plus shipping is reimbursed. If the lowest price is 25 cents, well, put it in the bag with the clothes that are going to Goodwill.

Bad advice. Amazon is paranoid about bootleg DVDs. You can have hundreds of good sales but if one or two customers complain about a bootleg, Amazon will kick you off. It doesn't matter if you have proof of purchase because they're too cheap to actually spend man-hours investigating disputes.

It's much better to sell on Half.com.
