Clothing Purge Report: May and June

It’s bimonthly Clothing Purge Report time! Rather than just showing you what I purchase, I also like to show you what items leave my house and how I sell or donate them.

First a quick reminder… here’s my criteria for where I sell:

  • Poshmark/eBay: items that are in perfect condition.
  • My Instagram page: items that are in perfect or near perfect condition. I’ll typically post a collage of what I’ve listed elsewhere.
  • Facebook Sale Groups: items that are in perfect or near perfect condition in specific brands, such as Anthropologie, Boden, and Stitch Fix.
  • Donate to Thrift Stores: items in good condition or showing wear.

May and June were super busy months for me with our Hawaii vacation, leaving my old job, and starting my new job. I didn’t really do any purging on Instagram, Facebook, or by donating to the thrift store. However, I did sell a bunch of items out of my Poshmark closet:

  • FabFitFun Show me Your Mumu robe, $26
  • Anthropologie top, $29
  • Lucky Brand embroidered tank top, $20
  • Kate Spade Trench coat, $85
  • Hello sweater, $11
  • Boden dress, $39
  • FabFitFun necklace, $10
  • DVF maxi dress, $86
  • BHLDN dress, $49
  • Blank NYC jean shorts, $28
  • Rock and Republic jean shorts, $23
  • Eileen Fisher sweater, $19
  • Kate Spade purse, $69
  • J. McLaughlin wrap dress, $35
  • Current Elliott Jeans, $24
  • Joie dress, $48
  • Anthropologie maxi dress, $55
  • Kate Spade jeans, $20

I sold a total of 18 items and my earnings were $676 before Poshmark fees (20%).

Most of the items were from my closet that I had worn over the years and fallen out of love with. Two items were from the FabFitFun box (cost $49 a quarter) that I didn’t love, so I resold them for a total of $36… making the rest of my quarterly box just $13.

A couple items were thrifted and flipped:

  • I bought the Joie silk dress for $5 and sold it for $48
  • I bought the J. McLaughlin wrap dress for $25, wore it twice and then sold it for $35.

I’m planning on doing another mid-summer purge of my closet and listing some more items on Poshmark. I’m also going to list some of Jack’s outgrown items in bundles for (hopefully) quick sales.
