People keep telling you to get rid of your stuff and decluttering but… no one tells you that you can also make some money from that and how?
The thought that always pop-up in your mind while you are making the decision to throw your stuff away is ” this dress is insanely expensive”, or “I spent a lot of money on that.” Actually, you can make money from it, even it is not the same amount but I would say you can get it pretty decent.

Local consignment store or thrift shop– What is consignment store? It a store that sells secondhand items (typically clothing and accessories) on behalf of the original owner, who receives a percentage of the selling price. Basically, you leave the item with them and they sell it for you. After the item’s sold, the consigner will get the money. However, some thrift store buys the items but the money you will earn is lower.
