5 Favorite Closet Clean-out Sites

Best Closet-Cleanout Sites - The LV Guide

When you go through your closet do you graze past barely worn clothes and think, “I have to remember to wear that tomorrow”? If you answered “yes” then it’s probably time for a clean-out. We know it’s difficult to part with pretty pieces (like that top you HAD to have because it was on sale) or nostalgic garments (the dress you wore on New Years Eve after completing a juice cleanse), but why not let someone else enjoy them and make a little extra money too!

Here are our 5 favorite closet clean-out sites:

Poshmark – Poshmark makes it so easy. You can use their app and take pictures of your items with your iPhone, put in a short description, and how much you would like to sell for, then you just wait for someone to purchase! Poshmark also provides a shipping label for you use. Poshmark takes a 20% commission fee that covers shipping, payment processing, customer service. (P.S. You can shop Lilliana’s closet here! Use code NBJHH for a $10 credit and bonus gift!)

Tradesy – Tradesy is similar to Poshmark. You can use their app or the website to list items and both sites provide shipping labels. The upside of Tradesy is their commission on each sale: they charge only 9%.

ThredUP – ThredUp is a little different; they send you a clean-out bag for your clothes and accessories. You fill it up, send it back and they contact you with a price. You don’t have to worry about photographing the items or listing them; ThredUp takes care of all of that!

Material Wrld – Material Wrld lets you trade in designer clothing for gift cards! Use their trade-in kit to send your designer duds, then you’ll receive an email with a quote. If you accept you’ll receive an electronic gift card to use at over 700 retailers. Make sure to review their guidelines because they’re very selective.

The Real Real – If you want to sell your Chanel bag (why?!) or a pair of Manolos that don’t fit, this is where you go. The Real Real specializes in consigning high-end fashion.

If you’re on the fence about what to get rid of The Everygirl suggests asking youself these 7 questions…

1. Does this fit?
2. Have I worn this in the last 12 months?
3. Is it likely I will ever wear this again?
4. Is this currently in style, and/or does this still accurately represent my style?
5. If this is damaged in any way (e.g., piling, rips, stains, missing buttons, broken zippers, fading, etc.), will I actually make the effort to get this repaired in the near future?
6. If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?
7. And most importantly: Do I feel confident when I wear this?
