    In the interests of reducing space, I’m getting rid of a lot of media that we simply don’t listen to or watch anymore. It’s just so bulky…

    There’s a table of just over sixty items continued after the jump, all DVDs and CDs at this point; just things that I have listed in the Amazon Marketplace. I mostly did that in order to gauge what the going price is for some of these items. With the ways that Amazon Marketplace works, and the commissions and shipping limitations they impose, anything priced below $8 may as well be given away.

    If it’s a double-sized DVD box, it costs nearly $10 to ship in Canada, but Amazon will only pay out ~$3.75 for shipping, so a $20 item in a double width case ends up running $10 for shipping, $4 in commissions to Amazon… $20 + 3.75 (shipping) – $10 – $4 = $9.75, which is pretty harsh. I’m not sure how the marketplace stores that low-ball items at pennies can do it unless they enjoy giving money away.

    I also have a small stack of cut-outs and promo CDs that I’ll send out to people who are willing to cover the cost of shipping. I’ll put together a list of those items this weekend if time permits.
