The Budget Fashionista compiled some great tips to make money from cleaning out your closet, including how to decide what to sell and the paperwork you need for donations, selling clothes on eBay, selling clothes at a consignment shop.
Start the process by dividing everything into four piles, which the Budget Fashionista calls:
1. The I’m Going to Keep These for Sure pile
2. The I’ll Probably Keep These pile
3. The I Didn’t Know I Still Had These pile
4. The Get Out of My Closet, Vile Clothing! pile
When you are done sorting, put the first pile back into the closet. Go through pile two and sort between keeping/selling. Check pile three for anything that could be considered vintage and toss pile four. Now it’s time to make money!
