Here are some places to sell online that have worked well for me. I have tried eBay and found it to be too cumbersome to bother with at times. I looked for other venues in my niche.
At the end of each summer, my neighbor cleans out closets full of homeschooling materials and list those items on HomeschoolClassifieds website. She is happy with this site and sees no reason to switch to another one. However, several other book-selling sites do exist.
If you have a thing for crafts or vintage items, check out Etsy. If you sell musical instruments, look up Musicians Buy Line. I have sold many of my own books on Bookjingle, a great site that pays the postage for you. If I do not want to mess with selling books online, I take them to Half Price Books and do pretty good for used books and magazines.
Good luck and hope this helps you make some extra money with those things you no longer need. What doesn't sell donate and write it off at the end of the tax year. Be sure to get a signed donation slip from the place you donate the items to. Even if you don't see yourself starting a reselling business, these are all places to sell the stuff collecting in your garage or attic.
