10 Easy Tips for Selling Your Clothes Online

10 Tips for Selling and Sorting your clothes onlineOur wardrobes are jam-packed. The average closet holds 100 items, 22 of which are never worn, and the average woman owns more than $1000 worth of underused (worn only once) or unworn (tags still attached) clothing items. Whether you want to move a few things to make room for purchases for the new season or earn some quick holiday cash, look inside your wardrobe and consider selling your clothes online.

Before you start, consider three things. First, what do you want to achieve? Be clear with yourself about how much money you need to make. This understanding will keep you focused, and if necessary, ruthless when tackling your wardrobe. Second, the sales won’t happen overnight. Expect at least a two-month turnaround.

The Financial District NYC| Sherita Rankins NYSE

The general rule is, after 10 years in the city, you are officially considered a New Yorker. Personally, I considered myself one way before that time frame (and still do even though I no longer live there). I know it may sound silly, but when I moved to the Financial District of NYC, the city and I had an instant bond. There is so much to love about New York, not counting the rats, the smells, and the cost. But honestly, everything else is fantastic!

I spent nine of my 11 years in the city that never sleeps living in the Financial District, or Fidi, as it's called these days. I was a resident of this neighborhood when not many wanted to be. Fast forward nine years, it's now one of NYC's most desirable areas. If you are planning a trip to the Big Apple, you have to spend at least a day in my old stomping grounds. Here are my recommendations for things you don't want to miss in the Financial District NYC.
