How to have a successful closet sale #makeitreign

This post is sponsored by USA Network but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Hello, my Littlefinders! I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how I keep my wardrobe fresh without breaking the bank. My secret? I often have closet sales that allow me to get rid of things I no longer wear and be able to buy new ones. Call it my side hustle, my entrepreneur self or just me slaying it in the fashion department. Let’s #MakeItReign

 

Why I do it?

Clothes help me express myself. Every season I find inspiration from magazines, Pinterest, and even TV characters. This season I am obsessed with Teresa Mendoza’s style. She’s the main character from USA’s Queen Of The South and she’s goals! From her clothes to her strong attitude she’s a total #girlboss. I have been binging in season one and two on Netflix, in anticipation of season 3 premiering Thursday, June 21st. I noticed I didn’t have many clothes that help me bring out my inner Teresa, so it’s time for a closet sale!

How I do it?

Get out your notebooks because here’s everything you need to know how to be successful.

  • No attachments: Go through your closet and if you have not worn something in 3 months it’s time to say bye-bye. (keep in mind I don’t get rid of staple pieces or higher end items, but if you are ready for any of them to go, do it!)

 

  • Post on your social media that you are doing a closet sale and whoever is interested add them to a private group (creating a group on Facebook or Instagram is the best way to go so you don’t spam the people that are not interested)

 

  • Once everyone has answered you, it’s time to add them to the group and post photos of your items. I only post one photo and let people know they can get more photos upon request.

 

  • State the rules, whoever comments SOLD first gets the item. Must pay with Cashpp, Venmo or Paypal within 24 hours of purchasing the item. No returns. I usually do a flat rate shipping, but if people want to meet me somewhere near my house we can do that too.

 

  • Price things reasonably, my rule is 25% to 50% of what I paid for the item. During my last sale, I made over $300 on stuff that was just sitting in my closet!

Guess what? You now have money to spend on new clothes! Find your inspiration and let’s go shopping!

 

I can’t wait to see what Teresa Mendoza wears during season 3 of Queen of the South premiering Thursday, June 21st!  The season will then air each week on Thursdays at 9/8c! She has seized the throne of her own empire now, so I am sure her style is going to be to die for. In the meantime get your fix by Catching up on Season 1 and 2 of Queen of the South on Netflix!

Until Next Time LittleFinders!

A “Do Good” Type of Date

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and The Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are mine alone. #GoldPeakFightsHunger #CollectiveBias

Hello, My Littlefinders! It is hard to believe June is right around the corner, however, this month holds a special place in my heart. This is the month I met my boyfriend Mauricio and June 2018 will be 10 YEARS since.

Throughout this decade I think we had every type of date you can think of, but this month we wanted to do something special and meaningful. While brainstorming a couple of ideas, we decided to help our local food bank. Feeding America® is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger. It has 200 member food banks across the nation and you can find your local food bank here

Once we knew where to donate, we looked in our pantry for items, but also headed to Target for some additional things. While we were there, we picked our favorite Gold Peak® tea. Our love for tea is something that has always brought us together, and now it’s bringing us together to do good. Gold Peak is partnering with Feeding America to help fight hunger, so we knew helping our local food bank was the perfect date.

 

We went through their website and looked at the “Most Needed Items” list. I recommend you do this prior to collecting, that way you are making sure you are donating things they really need. While on the website, we also found a time slot for us to actually go to the food bank and volunteer sorting food. We are scheduled for June 18th, What a better way to spend time together than helping people or families in need, (plus you know we will bring a little cooler with some Gold Peak in it). These are a couple of other ways you can get involved:

Gold Peak is partnering with Feeding America to provide meals to people in need. Text “GIVE” to 26739 and Gold Peak will donate a $1 to Feeding America Every $1 donated provides at least 10 meals to people in need*! Plus you can help your local food bank get a $1,000 donation by clicking here.  It takes less than a minute and it can make a huge difference! (The 10 food banks with the most support will each receive a $1,000 donation)

I know life can get busy, and its hard to find time to volunteer, but I encourage you to find some easy ways to help your local food bank with your loved one. What a better way than spend time together than doing good.

 

*Provide boxed goods or groceries to people, the food banks do NOT provide hot meals.
