I mentioned once before that I was obsessed, right? Well, it’s getting worse. I found this live auction app called Tophatter, which conducts lot auctions for Coach, jewelry and name brand cosmetics for way less than retail. They had me at Coach.
Some auctions start at $5 for Coach wristlets; others start at $1. Even the high end auctions are reasonable– an auction for a Coach tan leather bag (retail price $385) started at $50 and sold for only $70. The app is free and you’ll get $5 free if you join using my invite code: 12ce76. I *might* have already used my free $5 credit that I received when I joined within the first hour I was on the site. So really, I only paid $65 for that gorgeous tan pebbled leather turnlock hobo bag with the supple blue satin lining. … Yeah, justification… that’s the ticket.
I’m a bit obsessed. What started with selling a few gently used items around the house on Facebook sell/swap groups has progressed to all out clean out mania. Now I know there’s so many better options than Craig’s List or eBay. One great option is the site Twice.
Twice is the product of two ex-Google guys who grew up wearing second hand clothing. Since its launch in March 2012, their inventory has grown to 20,000 pieces and they’re still expanding. If you sign up now for Twice, you’ll receive $10 free credit. Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Clean Out Your Closet
Download a free shipping label, or request a free shipping bag to send Twice your clothes. It’s the easiest way to clean out your closet, and you’ll even earn a few bucks while doing it.
Step 2: Let Twice Do the Work
Once they receive your clothes, Twice will carefully review, measure, and professionally photograph every garment. You get paid upfront, plus they pay for shipping — it’s basically the easiest thing ever.
Step 3: Get Paid and Buy More!
They sell top brands are labels like J.Crew,Anthropologie, Ann Taylor, and more for up to 90% off retail.
If you’re lazy about cutting coupons like me, (somehow picking up the newspaper that lands at my door on Sunday is too much to muster during a Texas summer when it’s 108–literally) try Target’s mobile coupons. Great thing about Target is they don’t send you any text spam–only coupons that are super easy to use at checkout. Visit Target.com to sign up.
