Mercari App #DetoxChallenge – the ultimate wardrobe clear out
Back to the Detox Challenge now, I was asked to upload new items daily based on topics starting with winter clothes, following by shoes, accessories and lastly leftovers. I uploaded over 30 items during that time and have more to come, so keep an eye out! I sold roughly 5 items and they even simplified the postage process by having an in-app Hermes delivery page. It allows you to print off a unique Hermes sticker and immediately notifies the buyer with the tracking code and the postage price will be automatically removed from your credit – easy and efficient!
The money will be available to pay out once the buyer has received the item and has left a review. However, I have yet to reach that stage so I can’t comment on that right now. In summary, I love the app so far and I cannot continue to sell my clothes on it -> username shelleyannem.
3 Tips to successfully clear out your wardrobe
Don’t be kind
Haven’t worn it in a few years? Say bye-bye. I fully understand how hard it can be to throw away clothes as I can get a bit sentimental with them; it’s how I remember special memories. For example, the first date with my boyfriend. I still remember what we both wore and last year I had a little iron accident with the top I wore that night and got so emotional about it. But why keep something that no longer fits, no longer suits your style or is broken? Throw it away and make space for new.
Sell it / Charity
Don’t throw it all in the bin. You can sell it or give it to charity. I always sell the higher valued items and will give anything else to charity; also the clothes that don’t sell after a month will be removed from online selling portals and also given to charity. I always like to keep a nice balance between selling and doing something good.
