Turn Your Closet Into Cash


It's been a while since I last made a post but I'm so excited to get back into the blogging game! I'm definitely coming back this year with a more focused approach towards Belle Adore and plans to grow it further in the next few months!

Today's post is all about making money from a way you never thought about before. From a student's point of view, I never turn down an opportunity to make a little extra money. Sure, I have a job but it's nice to have a little extra something ($) to pay for those brunches/coffee dates, right?. So, when I was organizing my closet a few months ago I decided I didn't want to just throw my unwanted or outgorwn clothes away. I put my retail knowledge to use and decided to start sellingn it!There's something satisfying about making money while also tackling the dreaded task of cleaning out my closet. I guess it's like killing two birds with one stone...

Maybe you were proactive and spent your time on break wisely by tackling your to-do list task of cleaning out your closet, or, maybe its on your list of New Year's resolutions. Either way, once you've finished with the cleaning/organizational aspect, I suggest taking the time to separate the 'brand name, excellent condition' clothing because trust me, people will definitely buy it. That Lilly Pulitzer dress that you wore a few times but haven't since, or that final sale Jcrew top ? There are tons of people who would do anything quality products that are almost half the price. 

In my opinion, Poshmark is the best way to go if you're interested in selling your clothes. However, maybe a separate page on your blog or an individual Instagram account would be more appealing to you! Here are a few of my tips if you decide to sell your clothes:
  1. Brand Name: high quality, brand name items are always a winner on these sites. J.Crew, Zara, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Kate Spade - they are all highly coveted brand on these sites.
  2. *Almost* perfect condition: the better condition the product is, the more likely it will be to sell. Don't list pieces with stain, rips, faded colors, etc. And if the tag is still on the product, even better! A small defect is nothing to worry about - people understand that with the price they're getting the product for, it might not be perfect!
  3. Reasonable Pricing: people are more inclined to purchase an item if they know they are getting a good deal on it. Make sure the price reflects the quality of the product but that it is also a good deal for the customer!
