Frugal Money Saving Tips – Sell Old DVD Collections to Make Quick Cash

This weeks Frugal Money Saving Tip is brought to you by Music Magpie to help you rid yourself of unwanted DVD’s. Music Magpie is an online marketplace to sell your unwanted DVD’s, CD’s, Games, and Blu-Rays.

To get an idea of how this works I searched my house for some unwanted exercise DVD’s. Here is what I discovered.

The site is not a good place to sell exercise DVD’s, but when I put in video game bar codes that’s when we hit the jackpot. As you can imagine, having an 11 year old boy in my house means we have an abundance of games that he doesn’t use because he’s onto the next game as soon as it’s released.

The site is easy to use. You click on sell up in the menu area and then this screens will appear. You then enter the barcode on the back of your DVD’, games or CD’s.
