There is money to be made in your closet. Whether you clean out your closet every spring or haven’t for years, the process can be overwhelming. But, what if the clothes, shoes and accessories you’re about to toss can actually make you money? These tips will help you turn your clutter into money.
Closet clean outs can be a daunting job, the key is to take it in sections. A lot of women will pull everything out of their closets and then they run out of time and they push it all back in, which makes it worse than its was to began with. So we suggest divide and conquer. On Saturday afternoon do your shoes, at other times do your slacks. Breaking it up into small projects makes it much more manageable.
When considering whether to keep an item ask yourself these questions. Does it fit? Have I worn it in the last 12 months? Is it likely I’ll wear it again? If I was shopping right now would I buy this? And most importantly, do I feel confident in this? If you answer no to any of these, it’s time to consign, donate or toss the item
If your clothes are in great condition, current and a brand name label, consign them. You’ll get more money for each of your items if they’re in season, freshly washed and ironed or dry cleaned. And don’t forget your accessories, purses, jewelry, shoes and scarfs, they sell quickly. Our consigners have made thousands of dollars from cleaning out their closets. Some ladies can make a few hundred dollars in a matter of days, depending on the brands they consign. Where will you make the most money? Our customers are always looking for top brands like Chico’s, Coach, Brighton and Ralph Lauren. Right now spring tops and jackets, shorts, and golf wear are some of our best sellers.
Consigning your used or unworn clothing not only leaves space in your closet and helps the environment, but it gives you the opportunity to make money on clothing and accessories that you no longer want or wear. So this spring don't just clean your closet, make it profitable.
