Have you thought about selling clothes online?

Thursday, I gave an easy solution to get rid of your extra clothing. If you missed the post, you can find it here.

I use to have a TON of clothes. Most of them, I never wore. I bought them or someone gave them to me, and I found that either I had gained weight, lost weight, or just simply didn't like the item. But, I refused to get rid of any of it. You know, just in case I ever wanted to wear that item in a couple of years.

After moving out of my parents' house a few years ago, I learned a lot about the value of closet space. Most of my apartments or houses have had small closets or none at all! On a side note, having absolutely no closet is a total bummer. I found that not all of my clothes would fit in the spaces that I had.

Plus, lugging around countless bags filled to their busting point witth my clothes became tiresome everytime that I decided to move. Something had to give, so I meticiously went through all of my clothes, piece by piece. Finally, I was able to part with over half of my clothes.

Afterwards, I was left with several bags of unwanted clothing. Normally, I donate all of my clothes to a foundation or charity, such as, Good Will or the Salvation Army. I donate because its simple, easy, and I can help out the less fortunate.

I plan on selling a few items that are in my “get rid of” pile; so, I have complied a list of five websites where you can sell your used, unwanted clothing. Getting rid of unwanted items is a great way to earn some extra pocket cash.

Tips for Selling Used Clothes Online

  1. Wash all clothing items you want to sell. Make sure that the item isn't wrinkled, stained, or anything else.
  2. Write a detailed description of the clothing item. The more people know, the more they will be interested in your item. Always, mention any flaw that the piece has, such as, stains, rips, tears, or discolorations. Belive me, its better to be honest than sorry in the long run.
  3. List your items for reasonable prices.
  4. Make sure that your pictures are eye catching and beautiful. Show the item at different angles, have a friend wear the piece, and make sure that the lighting accturately represents the color of the item.
Have a great day!

  1. HI Lara, wow who knew there were so many sites out there to sell your clothes. Have you used any of these online companies to sell your clothing? If so what pros / cons did you face? Did you find one worked over the other for views, I've never heard of most of these just wondering if others know about them?

  2. Gurvy Green, I haven't used any place to sell my clothes online. Typically, I will give them to various family members (because we're all pretty much the same size, lol) or I donate them to Good Will. I have been planning on using Twice because I don't have to list all of the items myself. I'm kind of lazy when it comes to listing things like used clothing online!


  3. Wonderful discussion.Keep posting.
