10 Things That Cross Your Mind When You’re Selling Old Clothes

  1. Ok, I’m going to go through my entire closet Marie Kondo style and sell or donate anything that doesn’t give me joy. Bonus points if I find something that I personally never wear but would probably resell for a lot. Ahh, I’m going to make so much money after this. What should I buy??
  2. It’s a good thing I did laundry last night, because now my whole wardrobe is at my disposal. I’m going to fill this whole bag right here and then start another one and head down to the consignment store as soon as it opens.
  3. These boots cost over $200 alone. I know that resale prices are lower, but like, wow, they’re totally gonna want these, even if they sell them for less. So I know I’ll at least be making one sale today, and probably a big one at that.
  4. Ooh, Lululemon. Another brand they’re totally going to want. This workout tank was never that flattering on me, but someone else will L-O-V-E it.
  5. Waiting at the store for my name to be called. Who knew half of the city had the same idea to come here right at opening on Saturday?
  6. Write down what seems like every piece of identifying information (except for, like, my social, ha!) on the donation sheet the salesperson had me complete.
  7. Salesperson who was nice a moment ago adapts the most snobby expression ever as he starts going through my stuff.
  8. Salesperson tells me he’ll take three of my items. I ask him why he didn’t take the Lululemon tank, and he points out a small stain on the back.
  9. Eww, that stain obviously wasn’t from me! I just washed everything! But actually, now that I think about it, I did wear that shirt last weekend while eating froyo with the kids I babysit…
  10. Salesperson asks me if I’d like to receive $52 in store credit or $17.99 in cash. I take the cash and vow never to spend my time selling clothes at a consignment shop ever again. If only I had made enough money to justify that Milly dress in the window…
