How to Make Money Selling Your Clothes

fashion_closet
There are a lot of different ways to make some extra money using your old clothing. Sometimes you’ll grow out of  the items, other times you grow out of the style. Either way, these tips can help you get back some of their initial price. Check out a few of them below and click “edit” to add your own ideas on omghow.com.

  • The easiest way: Bring your clothing to a consignment/thrift store. My favorite thrift store is Plato’s Closet. You bring in your clothes, they pick what they like, and they give you cash! I’ve made over $70 this past year and a half at Plato’s Closet since I’ve moved and cleaned out my closet several times.
  • If you don’t have a Plato’s Closet near you, try thredup.com. It’s an online consignment store. You request a bag to be sent to your house and then when it is shipped to you, all you have to do is fill it up with your stuff. Send it back to thredup (they pay for shipping) and then they will send you cash for what they want. Everything else they will donate to charity or you can pay a fee to have it sent back to you.
  • If you can’t bring it to a thrift store or if they didn’t buy your items, you can hold a garage sale. Sell all of your clothes for $1 each and then you will clear everything out. $1 may seem ridiculous but in my experience, people aren’t willing to pay what something is worth at a garage sale. This also all depends on your neighborhood. In richer neighborhoods you can probably sell items for more, but still undervalue everything if you want it to sell.
  • Sell online – If you have something rare or valuable and want to get more money from it then you would at a thrift store or garage sale, sell it on eBay. eBay is known for it’s fashionable finds!
  • If eBay isn’t your thing, there are apps on your iPhone where you can sell clothing to peers. Apps like Poshmark and Threadflip are easy to use. Just upload a picture and name our price.

Enjoy your extra cash! What are you going to spend it on?
