Friday Fun: Prices then and Now

Most of us have a ton of unwanted items laying around that house that could be sold to raise some extra cash in the run up to Christmas. Most households will have everything from clothes that no longer fit, handbags that haven’t been used in years, mobile phones and games consoles long replaced with later models and a stack of DVDs or CDs that we never watch or listen to now that we all stream video and music.
