Friday Favorites:Favorite Consignment App- Poshmark

As many of you know, I love a good bargain. I’ve been dubbed a “Maxionista” by many friends and  salespeople and love the thrill of rummaging through a store to find the golden, bargain needle in the haystack. When I discover an amazing find,  I relish in the feeling of chills going up and down my spine and may even partake in a triumphant dance that rivals any touchdown celebration in the endzone.

But as much as I love a good find, I  love the thrill of consigning items even more.  So listen up, because I'm sure that many of you may have received some Christmas gifts that might not have been on your wishlist...

 I am quite a minimalist when it comes to my  closet. I have a few staple items for fashion category, such as 3 "go to" pairs of night-out jeans, my everyday jewelry pieces, and a few pairs of shoes. I like to feel good in what I wear and forget about the rest. It is such a good feeling to know that whatever you lay out to wear on the night before, will look good the next day.

After all, it is the worst feeling having to arrive late to work because you had to try everything on in your closet before you could find something that works. I would also argue that it is an even worse feeling to have to clean up said huge pile of clothes that evening when you return home.

Twice  a year, I partake in a major closet overhaul, in which I remove any pieces that I haven’t worn for a few months. I then try on those items and determine whether they are worth keeping. If I put on an item on and it’s just “blah,” I put it in the “don’t keep” pile. From this “don’t keep” pile I have donated many clothes to charity, as well as to some pretty happy friends. However, this past year, I have also made a pretty hefty sum of money by selling some of the clothes and accessories online. 

 By simply snapping a picture of the item I want to sell with my iPhone & uploading it onto the Poshmark app, I have made over $500 in clothes sales alone! The feeling of making money off an item that has just been sitting in your closet, is second to none. That's why I love the site Poshmark

Poshmark is a simple way to sell fashion from your iPhone or Android. You create a digital closet by snapping pictures of the items you wish to sell and listing each piece for whatever price you deem fit. Thousands of shoppers look through your digital closet and leave "likes" and comments on the items they are interested in. Once you have reached a negotiated price for your item, the interested buyer then purchases the item through a secure checkout on Poshmark. As the seller, you are then emailed a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label to package your sold item with. Once the package has been shipped and the buyer has confirmed that they have received it, Poshmark deposits your payment into your Poshmark account-balance.

I, myself, have made over $500 off Poshmark! Therefore, I wanted to share a tutorial on "how to list" your items, as well  as share a few, key tips for selling on Poshmark "like a Boss." 

I hope that you now feel prepared to make some extra cash by selling your unused items hanging in your closet on Poshmark. Pin these tips in order to ensure that you know how to Poshmark "like a boss." 

I am also very excited to report that there are some pretty amazing Friday Favorites coming up in the near future. So keep an eye out for those posts over the next couple of Fridays. Below is your daily dose of inspiration.

Create a great Friday and stay warm!
