How To Sell
Babies outgrow clothes very fast. On average, your baby grows about 0.5 to 1 inch in the first year and gains about 5-7 ounces each month. This means that your little munchkin will outgrow their clothes very soon. Since you are a new mom, you will be gifted with several gorgeous baby outfits, and friends and family will also hand down several clothes for your baby. There is also a possibility that you bought too many cute getups when you were pregnant. Your baby’s closet thus gets overstuffed with clothes that no longer fit. So now the question arises: What do you do with these clothes that your kid has hardly worn? So selling them is a good option. You can therefore clean the closet and make some good cash from it.
What to do with the kids’ clothes that they no longer wear?
Sale versus donate
When you start sorting, it can be a little time-consuming. You will have to inspect the stuff for holes, style, and stains. You need to understand that every bit of clothing will not be fit for sale, and you will have to check each piece with a very critical eye. You can either sell them to us at Kidsclutt.com, or you can also donate them. We will make sure that the clothes you donate are sent to a good NGO and not sold.
These are the clothes that are most apt for sale. They should be free from all kinds of stains and should not have any holes or tears. Make sure that the item is not too old. It should have been purchased somewhere between three to five years. You can then sort them as per the size and the season of wear.
These items look good; however, they are not perfect. They might have small tears or tiny stains. Overall, though these are good, if scrutinized thoroughly, then these stains and tears will be visible. These are good hand-me-downs. If you know someone who recently had a baby, they could have these clothes as they are good quality and free. You can also donate these items to the local thrift shelter, deductible under income tax.
All items will not be able to escape babyhood in the best of conditions. There are times when diaper blowouts or spit-ups happen, and these often leave quite tough stains. White-colored clothes are mostly affected by these stains. These items cannot be sold, neither can you give them to your family members or friends, and you also do not want to drop them in the thrift store. So the question that arises here is then, what can you do with them? The best thing you can do is use them as cleaning rags or recycle them for craft projects. You can give them to a church nursery or local daycare, and they might find them useful for emergencies. You can also sell clothes that have torn, but then make sure that you have mentioned it in the description. This will ensure that the buyer who buys your fabric is aware of it.
The clothes you want to send to the consignment shop should be clean and wrinkle-free. Though most of the time, they may be clean because you have taken them out from the closet, however; they might not be clean enough. A consignment shop may also turn down your items if they smell musty because they have been in the closet for six months. They may also not accept clothes that are heavily perfumed. Even the wrinkled garments might not be accepted. If you want your items to sell, you will have to laundry them using a fragrant-free laundry detergent. It will be a good idea to remove these items from the dryer so that you will not waste much time ironing them. Once your clothes are clean and ironed, you can box them according to size and season. Now you are ready to sell.
