So, I love watching vlogs on YouTube, and one of my favorite YouTubers is always mentioning that she will be listing an item in her closet. One day, I finally went to her YouTube video description to see what she was referring to. This is how I discovered Poshmark, the buying and selling platform used by people to sell fashion, clothes, and other items.
Initially, I did not think much of it. It was just another mental note in the back of my mind. Then, a few weeks later I realized that I needed to create my own Poshmark closet because the walk-in closet in my two-bedroom apartment was overflowing. I even had some of my clothes stuffed in my son’s bedroom closet as well as our hallway closet. I was overflowing with fashion pieces.
I decided to declutter my closet and start selling clothes on Poshmark! I downloaded the Poshmark app in December 2021, but I didn’t use it immediately. In February, I got serious about making money online after calculating the amount of money I owed in debt. I started snapping pictures and uploading the photos to the Poshmark app. I’ve been actively selling my own used items that I no longer need for about two months now. I’ve earned about $100 so far.
The benefits of selling on Poshmark include:
Zero (or low) start-up cost
I didn’t have to pay a dime to make my first sell. Poshmark takes care of the shipping costs. The priority shipping packages are free. All I had to do was print the label, place the item in the package, and drop it off at the post office.
Poshmark is all about sharing your own closet and other Poshers’ closets. So even when I’m not constantly posting on a particular day, other Poshers are sharing the items in my closet to their followers.
They say one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, so I’m hoping to turn my overflow of fashion into financial freedom. I have zero regrets about selling clothes on Poshmark – it’s up from here!
