It’s that time! Spring closet cleanout & making some extra money on Posh MarkπŸ’°

Who actually enjoys cleaning out their closet & organizing !? Honestly I don’t like to do it, but I feel much better once I do ! πŸ™‚ I wanted to share a few things that have helped me recently & also have helped my previous hoarding issues, lol.

  1. Make 3 piles keeping, throwing away & donating , if your going to sell on posh mark make another pile for posh mark items.
  2. For what your going to keep…I want to add I would go with the 6 month rule & if you haven’t worn it since then mostly likely you wont wear it again. Sometimes I hold onto items longer that I should, so that is why I say that. I would also color coordinate; this has honestly helped me so much because if I know what color I am going to wear that day then I just go to that section in my closet. I do not hang everything! I mean I would need a HUGE closet for that lol. I only hang tops, sweaters, jackets, & dresses. Everything else is folded nice & neat ( Marie Kondo style). If you have space I would also put away things for other seasons that you wont be using right now in storage bins. Here are some links to some good storage options found at Target ; https://shopstyle.it/l/bscxQ; https://shopstyle.it/l/bsczx; https://shopstyle.it/l/bsczx
  3. Throw away items should be items that are faded, torn , have stains or rips; obviously items that you wouldn’t want to donate or sell.
  4. Posh mark items to sell that are very popular are usually brand name items, but if they have tags still or are in excellent condition I would still try and sell it at least. You never know! Take good pictures of the items in good lighting; I take pictures of the front, back , side , any details , & the tag. I know not all of us are patient with selling online, lol. I’ve kept items for at least a month on there, but I don’t have a lot of storage space so that is why I like things to move along and if it doesn’t sell I just move on and donate. Posh mark does take a fee but overall I have made a good amount of money in the last couple of years so I do recommend it. The shipping is included so all you have to do is print your label, order your shipping boxes on the USPS website ( its for free! ) https://www.usps.com/ they deliver your packaging items. You just package your items tape the label and drop it off ! Its very easy πŸ‘πŸ½
  5. Going forward what has helped me not over spend is seeing what I have and knowing what I really need versus me just wanting to buy something because its cute or what not.. us women tend to do that so much, excuse’s excuse’s, lol! πŸ˜† I don’t buy too many trendy pieces because I believe I may not use them again so I try to buy items that are versatile. I know I will wear them over & over and I will be able to create different looks and wear them with different pieces in my closet. I also try to buy different colors that go well with my skin tone, so that I can have a range of colors to choose from so I am not wearing the same color all the time. Also you can say to yourself for example I have 10 dresses do I need another one? Depending on how many times you wear dresses in a month lets say.. do I need another? Let me see if I can sell or donate a few that I have so I can buy another. All I say is to be smart with your shopping. I think all of us can be impulsive when buying, so just want to share what has helped me.

Another quick tipπŸ‘‰πŸΌ if you don’t love something when you try it on don’t buy it. Right now a lot of stores are not doing try-on’s, but double check their return policy take it home try it on & if you don’t love it all the way take it back.

Thanks for visiting my blog & reading ! I appreciate it so much πŸ€— Go ahead & comment below any tips you may have.

I have also shared my Posh Mark closet below for anyone who is interested, I will be adding more items soon: πŸ‘‡πŸ½
