Remember when I talked about selling your closet, then I talked about buying other people’s closets on apps such as Tradesy, Threadflip and Posh? Here’s my advice from the most obvious woman alive. Try eBay.
I know that’s not earth shattering news, but as I research all of these options, I’ve found the peer-to-peer selling sites to be way overpriced and eBay to be the best deal for designer goods.
For example, I searched Coach, sorting the results by ending soonest (Take note, that’s the key — sniping in at the last minute to outbid others I’ve learned). I picked up this black leather Coach wristlet to match a Coach purchase I had for less than $20.

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.
