As part of my effort to “de-clutter” my life (and combat current economic forces), I’ve decided to get rid of many of the compact discs we’ve collected over the past 25+ years.
For full albums, I’m looking at this service I read about in Newsweek. Before I contact them, I thought it would be wise to have Cheapo’s give me a quote to see if they are a better deal. I’ll update this post with the results.
UPDATE: Cheapo’s offered me about the same as the iPod place (~$1/CD), so I just decided to take that offer.
As for CD singles, my wife and I have been collecting these from around the world for many years. Some are worth next to nothing, while others may be diamonds in the rough. I used to list on eBay to sell things like this, as that usually provides the best chance to see what an item is really worth. The problem is that it’s a major hassle to take photos and create multiple listings (to say nothing of the costs involved).
So I’m trying something new – today I created a database-backed page on this site that lists the artist, title, catalog number, number of tracks and a brief description of the item. If you see something you like, shoot me an email and I’ll give you more information about it.
It will take me several days to get all of the singles entered, so check back often…Originally published by DK on October 19, 2008 at 10:17 pm
