Creative Ways to Find $$$$ In Your Closet
It is such an excellent example of a creative way to get rid of an unwanted item while making some money at the same time.
Everyone is talking about finding ways to make extra money and avoid over spending. But did you know that there is money hiding in your closet and drawers?
Allow me the opportunity to provide you with some ideas as to how you, too, can discover the extra cash hidden in your wardrobe, drawers, and even in your shoeboxes.
First, and for my clients this suggestion comes as no surprise, go through your closets and drawers and pull out what you never wear, what doesn’t fit, or in the case of shoes, the ones that hurt your feet.
The items that are new or barely worn can be brought to a consignment shop. Clothes that are in good condition and not outdated are always excellent candidates for re-sale.
These days, consignments stores are star performers. Their sales are up and their inventory is usually quite diverse and full.
The better the consignment store does, the more likely your items will sell quickly and for a higher price. Consignment stores take your clothes in for a specific amount of time, and give you 40% to 50% of how much they are sold for.
Be sure to pick up whatever does not sell, and along with the clothes that are not sales worthy, donate these items to the Salvation Army, Goodwill or your local community center. Remember to get a receipt for tax-deduction purposes.
Another option is to use online consignment services.
We have all received a few gifts that we really wish we hadn’t. Like that sweater your mother-in-law, sister, or friend gave you, the shirt that’s two sizes too large or small, or the scarf in that unflattering color…you know what I’m talking about.
The expression “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” holds true. So consign or donate those gifts you know you’ll never wear. Hey, you might not even like them.
Why bother holding onto items that will not be worn, used or cherished? Not only can you find extra money by going through your closets, you will also feel lighter and less cluttered.
Consigned, they will make someone else very happy and put money in your pocket to buy things perfect for you.
Take advantage of the opportunities to turn your trash into treasure and remember that spring is around the corner along with another opportunity for turning your unwanted clothes into cash: Tag Sales.
