Generating Income from your Closet!

So I have been actively selling clothing from my daughter's closet on POSHMARK since December.  Although some people might use this as a way for primary income, I have found that it is a nice way to earn a little extra money now and then!

If you are looking for a "get rich quick" option, those don't exist!  For me at least, I want to present myself in the best light  possible, so this is what I do before I list an item for sale online. It is quite time consuming.

1. Machine or hand wash each item.
2. Iron or steam each clothing item.
3.Take a front, back, detail and clothing label photo of each item.
4. Research the app to see if there are any similar items already for sale. Read the descriptions and compare listing prices.
5. Post the items for sale.
6. Re-share the item during theme appropriate parties to reach the maximum amount of potential buyers.

It is kind of exciting to make a sale & ship it off.  I don't mind spending a lot of time on the computer, so for now I will continue to try and sell clothing online this way.

If you think that this is something that you would like to try, sign up using code NKLQC for $5.00 credit!

A Great Time to Buy a Coat!

Now is a great time to buy a winter coat from BURLINGTON!

Check out these great styles and prices.  And did you know that if you bring in an old coat to donate, that they will give you a coupon for 10% off of your next entire purchase? It is part of their Warm Coat Drive to help local families in need. 

You have to hurry though, because they are only offering this until January 19, 2017 and you will need to use your coupon by January 23, 2017. Otherwise, you can always wait until next year!

What are you waiting for?!

I always love these articles! As a matter of fact, I usually print one out and hang it by my calendar in the event I have a special purchase to make.

I found this article to be exceptionally informative, so I am sharing it with all the people on the internets who are budget conscious, like to save money and like a great deal! It is written by LIFEHACKER and it has a great calendar as well as a well written article detailing the best times of the year to buy goods. They update it often, so you are sure to get the most current info!

Happy shopping!

Generating Income from your Closet!

I was faced with the dilemma of what to do with extra clothes in my daughter's closet when she moved away from home. I wanted to find a way to generate some extra money for her new adult living expenses, and since my neighborhood doesn't allow garage or yard sales I turned to the internet for research.

While I found a lot of online options, there were definitely different factors to consider. I researched quite a few, but I ultimately decided on POSHMARK - You can access this website via your computer, sign up & buy items, but if you want to become an active seller you will need to download their app. It is very user friendly, and you can quickly set up your closet and list items for sale. Although it was primarily set up to sell women's clothing and accessories, I have come across children's and men's clothing, pet accessories and housewares!

Because it is a very social media site, I have been learning that it is very important to be active on the site, gain a lot of followers, follow a lot of people and participate in the many online themed "parties" that are hosted daily. My closet is relatively small, but after several months I have sold several items. It is my understanding that if I can get to 4000 followers, that that is a good basis number to help me start gaining new sales!

If you are wondering how it works, a potential buyer can buy your item or make an offer, that you can accept, reject or counter. If the sale is mutual, the company will email you a prepaid shipping label, you package it up and put it into the mail! If you sell your item for over $15.00 you keep 80%. If it sells below, they subtract a $2.95 fee and you keep the balance. 

If you decide to sign up, please use this CODE NKLQC and you will receive an instant $5.00 credit to apply against a purchase! If you would like to see my closet, you can visit it HERE.

Happy selling!
