    Awesome tips! I tend to become a clothes hoarder and desperately need to get rid of some things. I’ll definitely be going through everything this weekend!

    i find ebay to expensive to sell with, because of the seller fees. In Australia there are a lot of buy, swap, sell pages on facebook that you can join and sell your unwanted clothes. Often people pick up so you get cash in your hand which means no PayPal fees either!

    Now totally feels like the right time for a wardrobe clear out! Spring clean and all!

    I use eBay for my more precious items (and try to list them when there are zero insertion fees, this happened quite often so keep your eye on eBay!) that way you can list a reserve price so you’re not underselling expensive pieces.

    In the UK we have car boot sales (a bit like flea markets) which are brilliant for selling lots of clothes for cheap. If you have something similar near you in NY maybe consider it?

    Over all, I think if it’s not worth a lot of money give to Good Will! It’s a great way to pass on you old favourites for a good cause AND clear up a tonne of space for you!

    I already do the color scheme and organizing of my clothes and try to clean out the closet probably once, maybe twice, a year. Albeit I fall into my old shopping habits as soon as I’ve managed to gain a little space. Lol. I think I’ll definitely be trying this out for my next closet clean out.

    I sell my clothes at a local consignment shop (Avalon – Cleveland, OH)! They do a really fair quoting on my clothes. I avoid places like Plato’s Closet like crazy.

    Nice tips listed here. I need to do this this weekend. It always feels relieving to purge the closet. The advice presented in this post will make the whole process that much easier. Thanks for sharing!

    I just had a major closet cleanout and I definitely agree with the consignment stores you can sell via mail (thredup/buffalo exchange): you don’t get much money. I think they are helpful if you are really trying to purge your closet because it is quick. It can sometimes take a really long time to sell an entire closet worth of clothes on Ebay, so I reserve that site until after I purge and only have a few items here and there to sell!
