National Consignment Day

 

Happy National Consignment Day! I teamed up with The Real Real to talk all about consigning your old {or sometimes never worn} goods. If you’re like me you have tons of things just sitting in your closet that you haven’t worn in a long while, things that don’t fit, or shoes you’ve replaced. Consigning isn’t only a great way to clean out your closet and start fresh, its also an easy way to make a little extra money while also being sustainable. 2.5 billion pounds of clothing are saved from landfills a year through resale and donation. Companies, like The Real Real, will take your lightly worn designer clothing, jewelry, shoes and handbags, photograph them, merchandise them, and sell them on their site while you earn up to 70% of the profit! Its super easy and actually a little fun to see your once old things new again. Donating is another great way to freshen up your closet while also making sustainable choices. Contact local charities in your area and see if they’re looking for clothing. It’s a great way to give back to the community and to help others that are in need. #neverthrowaway

I linked a few things that are currently in my closet {and that I wish were in my closet} listed on The Real Real for way less than retail, you can shop them below!
