3 Great Options to Sell Clothes Clutter

 

Consigning used clothes can be a pain in the neck, schlepping or waiting months for an in-store appointment to drop off your clothes. It’s frustrating and counter-productive. Instead of waiting, people often end up donating the clothes just to get the clutter out of the house. 

Of course, donating is good, but according to the Environmental Protection Agency, 85% of donated clothes end up in a landfill. Knowing this, people feel discouraged instead of proud.


Three great options to sell your clothes clutter, easier and faster:

Since 2009, Eileen Fisher’s Renew Program has taken back over 1M garments from their customers. The garments are cleaned, mended, re-sewn, felted, over-dyed and re-sold. Their “Tiny Factory” re-purposes stained clothes into new clothes, art pieces, and even furniture. Drop off your clothes at stores or mail them in to get $5 per garment rewards card.


The world’s largest online marketplace buys and sells women and kids secondhand clothes and accessories.

You can choose a “payout” to yourself or donate the cash you earn to their Charity Partners (Help Mother Out, Girls Inc., Wardrobe for Opportunities, Big Brother Big Sister, Feeding America), and get a tax receipt. In 2018, ThreadUP donated nearly $80,000 to charity!

Order a shipping kit; they pay for USPS or Fedex shipping! Questions 

(Please encourage ThredUP to initiate a program for men’s clothes here. Guys need help getting rid of their clutter, too!)

  

Cambridge, Maynard, Reading, MA.  

New and consigned women’s fashion—a go to for modern style, classic vintage, and luxury clothing and accessories. High quality fashion at a fraction of the cost. All items are in mint condition and have a unique quality and style. 

Raspberry Beret makes consigning clothes truly enjoyable!

  • Quick appointments. You don’t need to wait months.
  • They’ll come to your home to pick-up your clothes.

It's Getting Hot! New Book in the Works

 

It’s July … Six months till January 1, 2019. I know what it takes to get through big projects, but this one is mine: writing a proposal to get a publisher for my new book, It’s Your Mess, But Not All Your Fault. I've been talking about writing this book for a long time, but glad I waited as I've gained valuable experience over the years. Now to get into the hot seat and enjoy the writing.

Over 1,000 new You Tube subscribers in the past 45 days! Why is this important? 10,000 subscribers by 1/1/19 will demonstrate a following that will help attract a publisher. People are loving the videos. Maybe you will too. I humbly ask for your support.

The last thing we need is another book on organizing and decluttering tips, right!?

Instead, this book will be full of original info-graphics and decision-making flow charts to help you navigate through the mess and stress. They have all been tested through 10 years of working with happy clients. Tips will be included, but what we all need is clear pathways to embrace an essential new way of thinking, and essential skills to persevere. Only then can the physical work of taking care of our homes and lives become easier, even enjoyable.

Intelligent, capable people get bogged down because the decluttering and organizing tips are not enough. It’s much easier to get to the stuff when you first learn: How to get ready properly • How to make and trust your decisions • How to make and protect your time • How to prevent overwhelm • How to get family cooperation • How to negotiate • How to move out of shame and confusion - forever! These life skills last a life time.

Stay tuned, and thanks for staying connected. Take a look, and thank you so much for subscribing!
