Buying Books?

So you want to splurge on some fantastic new YA books, but you don't have the cash?

Here are some simple solutions.

1.) Sell your old electronics at Gazelle.com Gazelle lets you type in your electronic, and then they show you an image of it and you click on certain buttons saying if it's damaged, has a charger, etc. Then they will tell you what they will pay for it, and if you want to sell, they'll ship you a box with pre-paid postage free of charge and then either give you your money via bill, paypal, or gift card. It's also ecofriendly!

2.) Sell old books at Chegg.com, $40 for a text book and $10 dollars for more novels. You will be paid via a visa gift card, and for every book you buy, sell or rent, they will plant a tree.

3.) Turn in loose change! TD Banks Penny Arcade lets you turn in loose change for quick cash at no cost. And you can also do this at most grocery stores but they will charge you about 9 cents per dollar, unless you redeem your coins for a gift card instead of cash and then there is no fee.

For those of you who find this intimation eerily familiar I got it out of a Seventeen magazine. :)

**4.) There's always ebay.

Hope this helps!

I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:
