Sell or donate dvds?

So, I have a good amount of dvds that I no longer use and are taking up space and I really dislike clutter. In the past I have used trades or selling and it was pretty easy because dvds were still a popular form of media. Now, dvds just don't sell that well. Also, in the past, I would just sell dvds as a large lot to Roleez but I have no idea if she still even buys dvds.

I would prefer to just get rid of them all at once instead of in drips and drabs. so, I should just donate right?

I think Roleez still buys them.
I have been donating mine to my library for their sales or to Vietnam Vets. It is not worth the hassle to sell them individually - at least not for me.

It depends. If you want extra cash, I'd list the lot with the option to ship without cases so the user saves on shipping cost. I'd give the lot a few weeks to see if it sells and if not, I'd donate.

I donate.

Selling is not something I want to get into, for a lot of reasons. For one, my time available at the computer is erratic and I'd feel terrible if somebody wanted to get in touch with me but I didn't get back to them within a reasonable time frame.

Listing, buying shipping materials, packing,waiting for money, standing in line at the post office versus pulling into the Goodwill and dropping them off. Hmmmmm.

I donate to the ARC thriftstore, that way they can sell them and make money for the charity. I used to give to my friends but they don't seem to do the workouts!

You could always post as a lot on Roost, if you want the cash. I can only think of one or two negative experiences that were ultimately resolved. But I get what Joni says, it can be a hassle if you decide not to sell as a lot and don't have the packing materials readily available. One VFer also offered to SASE for a lot of dvds, with the stipulation that she would not post a listing. You just had to pay for postage up front. But, that again brings up the packing materials.

I say if you don't want to be bothered with packing materials or standing in line at the post office, donate. You may not even need to leave your house to donate, as I believe some places will drop by to pick things up.
