spring cleaning

I know I’ve written a post about NY tips, but let me add two very important things I have learned up here:

  1. your money will go FAST
  2. affordable apartments have no storage space (meaning no room for clothes and shoes)

Now I never thought I’d type this, but.. dad, you were right. I did not need to bring all these clothes up here, but it’s been done. And what better way to free up some space with a little spring cleaning.

Now my idea of spring cleaning is going through every piece of clothing/shoes I own, trying most items on, then deciding to donate or list on Poshmark. Also referring back to 1. I’m kind of broke, so most items are being listed on Poshmark.

For those who don’t know what Poshmark is, I suggest you download their app. NOW. However, it’s basically a buy and sell website for fashionable pieces of clothing, shoes, and accessories. I have been an avid Poshmarker, if you will, for about six years. I have no idea why, but I find the process of listing items so therapeutic.

Over the years I have learned it’s all about the cover photo. When buyers are browsing the site, the first thing they see is the cover photo for your item. So it’s key to make that picture visually pleasing to the eye. *see below*

To be honest, this is some of my best work. I don’t know what it is about adding a touch of greenery to a picture, but it freaking works. This swim top sold in less than 24 hrs, and I am 100% sure it was because of this bomb photo.

So if you’re feeling like doing some closet cleaning or you’re just broke like me, find a clean wall, a fake plant or two, maybe a string of lights, and get to Poshing!

Also if you want some inspiration or feel like doing a little shopping yourself, feel free to browse my Poshmark closet right here through my blog under the ‘Shop My Closet’ tab. Click the photo and it’ll take you right to the item. ❤

Happy spring cleaning!
