How to sell books on Amazon

You can make a few extra bucks and clear out some space in your home by selling your books on Amazon. Setup an individual account and pay $0.99 per item, or if you plan on selling more than 40 items per month, you can choose a professional account and pay $39.99 per month — both have closing fees based on the item sold. You can either wait until the item has sold and send it directly to the customer or use Fulfillment by Amazon, which allows you to send it to Amazon and have them take car...

Sparking the Joy of Storage

Storage and organization businesses are cleaning up thanks to Marie Kondo. By Rieva Lesonsky Organizing guru Marie Kondo is everywhere. Americans can follow her advice on her TV show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, in her books and via numerous media appearances (in print, online and on television). Kondo’s primary advice about purging household (or business) items that don’t “spark joy” is one of decluttering. But in order to successfully organize your belongings, you may need to buy more product...

$44M-funded Omni pivots from storage to rentals via retailers

Omni simply couldn’t scale storing stuff in giant warehouses while dropping it and off picking it up from people on demand. Storage was designed to bootstrap Omni into peer-to-peer rentals of the goods in its care. But now it’s found a better way by partnering with retailers which will host and rent out goods for Omni that users will pick up themselves. With that strategy, Omni is now formally pivoting from storage alongside its expansion from San Francisco and Portland into Los Angeles and N...

An insider's view of Facebook's 15 months in hell: my take

Following up on Xeni's post from earlier today: For their 12,000-word, beautifully reported story on how Facebook's top executives coped with 15 months of mounting crises, Wired's Nicholas Thompson and Fred Vogelstein spoke with 65 current and former insider sources, producing a gripping account of how the people who built the worst thing to ever happen to the web coped when the world woke up one day and figured this all out. It's a portrait of a company that can't escape its DNA, a company...

Disney Plus isn't a 'Netflix killer,' but other streamers like Apple should be worried

Disney unveiled its Netflix rival, Disney Plus, on Thursday, and some industry observers dubbed it a "Netflix killer." But the streaming market won't have one winner, and as Netflix is the clear No. 1, Disney Plus is much more of a threat to services from Apple and WarnerMedia. Disney's aggressive pricing of Disney Plus (and Hulu) also validates Netflix's emphasis on achieving global scale as quickly as possible. Netflix's brand has become an important part of the pop-culture fabric, and while...

Get Cozy: Walls Are Closing in on Today’s Renters

Renters could have afforded a unit 225 square feet larger for the same monthly rent just five years ago – about the size of two more bedrooms Seattle, WA – April 11, 2019 (PRNewswire) It’s not just your imagination; renters are getting less bang for their buck these days.

paper books

I was recently offered boxes of books.  Specifically they were boxes of books from my childhood, teen years, and twenties.  These books have resided in boxes at my parents’ house through a couple of moves, so not only are the books old, they are well-traveled.  My primary concern with taking ownership of long-abandoned boxes of books hinges largely on the the lack of bookshelf space for them.  Over the past half decade plus I have built a space for books in my life which centers on the idea that...

The Life-Changing Magic of Unfollowing Almost Everybody

In a last-ditch effort to enjoy my social media experience again, I unfollowed 90% of my Twitter feed—and I think it worked. When I check in now, in just a few minutes I catch up on everything said by the ninety or so people I follow. I have time to consider what they say. I don’t leave upset. It’s similar to how Twitter felt when I joined. In 2009, it really seemed to connect you to the pulse of the online world. That sounds like satire now but it really felt like that. The original co...

When We Say "Clean" Beauty, Here's What That Really Means

Philosophers have said that people cannot change their habits without first changing their way of thinking (or was that Marie Kondo?), but nobody could have predicted how difficult it'd be in 2019 to understand the phenomenon that is "clean" beauty. Brands have identified that consumers want safe, nontoxic products, but sorting through the verbiage - especially when sharing the beauty shelf with terms like "natural," "organic," and "green" - can feel like finding your matching sock in the ...

4 People From Around The World On Keeping Up With KonMari Months Later

On January 1, Marie Kondo 's now-infamous home makeover show, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, dropped on Netflix. Since then, our homes and our lives have not been the same.

Goodwill to target online shoppers with browser extension

Goodwill is setting its sights on a formidable rival for a charity thrift store: Amazon. The nonprofit’s New York-area organization has teamed up with Price.com to develop a browser add-on that alerts online shoppers at sites like Amazon.com Inc. and Walmart Inc.’s Jet.com when a product they’re looking to buy — say a mountain bike or a pair of shoes — is available on Goodwill’s website. Shoppers can then click a pop-up link to order the second-hand version shipped to them instead. “We’re offeri...

Clean Cleaning: How Eco-Friendly Companies Are Rebranding Your Least Favorite Chore

It’s become apparent that sooner or later, every market will be made over in the millennial image. What started with brands like Glossier and Warby Parker has now grown to include direct-to-consumer toilet paper and consciously-crafted olive oil with packaging so hip it could have been designed by Rachel Comey. Now, the cleaning supply industry is being similarly disrupted, with so many new brands touting alternatives to traditional cleaners that aren’t just eco-friendly, but are also elevated,...

Not Only Aren’t Books Dead, But Cookbooks Sell Like Hotcakes

Cookbooks not only didn’t die, but one in the UK is selling as fast as J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown. What? “The future that Leith and Smith feared – where we do all our cooking from online searches on our tablets – simply hasn’t materialised. Or at least hasn’t caught on to anything like the scale of the apocalyptic projections. Many of us simply love cooking from cookbooks and, even in the Marie Kondo age, don’t want to give them up.” – The Observer (UK)
