I guess it depends on what you mean by 'minimum return on stuff'?

The 2nd hand market is generally going to be pretty cheap and most people aren't going to pay you for what you bought the item for.

That said, some items are just unsellable. For example, someone might buy a plastic toy gun or an old RC car for $15-20. But nobody's going to buy an advanced physics textbook book that's like 10 years old, for even $1 because most college curriculums won't use that book anymore.

You might save some time by either:

1) Selling stuff that has a wide market appeal / product-market fit. And if it isn't selling, think about why nobody wants to buy it.

2) Once you know you have a bucket of items that a lot of people will wanna buy, sell those for higher than normal prices. And once you have a bucket of items that you really don't think people will buy. Also start at higher prices and then keep lowering them until you hit like a $1. If still nobody buys it, it's time to donate it. Better to take an L on the money than have the clutter and an unsellable item, since it'll just eat up time you don't have.
