Still looking for more ways to save on Christmas or save UP for Christmas? Tip 24: Sell Your Clothing to a Resale Store.
Local resale stores are always looking for clean, well-kept clothing!
Taking care of your family’s clothing can pay off when it comes to saving for Christmas. Take a look online to see what clothing resale stores are around your area—stores for women, men, and kids. If you follow their Facebook page or join their email list, you’ll probably be one of the first people to know when they begin accepting clothing for the next season. They often do this very early, so keep your clothing washed, folded, and sorted by season. For instance, they might start buying fall clothing as early as July!
You want to get your family’s clothing to the resale store within a few days of them accepting new clothing. They stop accepting certain types of clothing as they buy enough of it—if someone donates 30 pairs of size 10 jeans, your size 10s will be sitting in the basement a little longer!
Getting your clothes in early gives them plenty of time to sort and decide what clothes they want to buy. Take the money you earn and stick it away for Christmas! Do this four seasons a year and you’ll have four nice chunks of change to use for Christmas.
