Easy Way to Make Extra Cash AND Declutter Your Closet!

Looking for some extra money? Or just wanting to get rid of some clutter? It’s so much easier than you think!

Having a garage sale used to be the way to go to get rid of all those clothes you don’t wear, but I am about to tell you about something SO much easier and way more lucrative! No more price stickers, table set up, cleaning out the garage or driveway, or having strangers rifle through your things, at your home, just to make $2 off a pair of jeans that cost you $80 originally.

It’s been estimated that Americans only wear 20% of what is in their closets - whether that is because you have a bunch of impulse buys hanging in there or “bargains” that you had to buy because it was such a good deal, even if it doesn't fit or look quite right. If you are anything like me, it is hard to part with these items because you spent your hard earned money on them! They idea of selling that great $40 sweater, even if it’s too small, for $3 at a garage sale is a tough pill to swallow!
So let me introduce you to Poshmark. Poshmark is an online marketplace of clothing, bags, accessories, and beauty items. Not only can you purchase new and used items from other sellers, at the same flat shipping rate, but it’s an amazing way to declutter! I’ve sold many, many items of clothing, curling irons, shoes, etc. for prices that I would never get at a yard sale!
To sell an item, I just take some good photos with my phone, upload them to the Poshmark app, add a description for potential buyers, and wait for someone to purchase it! I can offer discounts if they purchase more than one item from me. I set my own prices, with a small portion going to Poshmark as a selling fee. In the time I have casually been using Poshmark to weed through some of my closet, I’ve made $672! When have you ever made that much from a yard sale? (Not including furniture and large items, of course) AND, I post and ship at my convenience. When I make a sale, Poshmark sends me the shipping label. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Like I mentioned, you can find some great deals on Poshmark, as well. We all know that when you go on vacation, you have to have some new “vacation clothes”, right? I’ve found some amazing deals on name brand clothing, in new or great condition, for a fraction of what they would cost in stores. There’s also special occasion dresses, new shoes, you name it.

So bottom line, this is a super easy, efficient way to make some cash and declutter your house and closet, at the same time. And if all of that wasn’t incentive enough, sign up for Poshmark with the code JAMISON12306, and get $5! That's free money, on top of what you will earn on your own!
