These past couple of months, i’ve taken a hard look at my closet. What I need, what I don’t need, and what I can sell. I have been using consignment shops ever since I was a girl – my Mom used to take my things for extra cash when I was little, and as an adult I have adopted the same habit. If you take really good care of your things, you can make some great money by selling them when you’re kind of over them.
I used to go old school – taking my things to an actual shop. But now, I mostly sell my things online. For lower end items, I am a big Poshmark fan. It’s an app and it is super easy to use. You just take a picture of your item, describe it, price, and list. SO easy! To find and follow me on Poshmark, my user name is mcmilano77.
For higher end items, I just had a great (and super easy) experience with The Wrld. Formerly called Material Wrld, you can send your items to them with a prepaid label, they will decide what they’ll take and then email you an offer. You can accept the offer, or decline, and if you decline, they will send your items back to you or donate. If you choose to accept their offer, you will get to choose a gift certificate to one of the following retailers: Shopbop, Saks, Bloomingdales, Steven Alan, Barneys, Neimans, or Nordstroms. Amazing!
From my items I sold to The Wrld, I netted $275. I chose a gift certificate to Shopbop, and now the question is…..what do I ‘need?’ Well…..I can’t stop thinking about getting a fabulous pair of gladiator sandals. The ones that go all the way up your calf. Some of my favorite looks with these sandals via Pinterest:
