it’s that time of year again. Time to declutter and refresh for spring! I got a mandatory huge head start on my spring cleaning with all of the remodeling projects I took on this year. To cut down on the amount I needed to store during construction, I sorted everything into those classic three piles: keep, donate, and sell. Now that my remodeling projects are wrapping up, i’m ready to attack that sell pile with eBay.
I love the idea of passing some of my gently-used items on to someone who is looking for them on eBay and the process couldn’t be easier. Step 1: list it & sell it. Step 2: ship it. Step 3: get paid. It’s so simple. You can list items via your computer or even your mobile device, which is super convenient. But the best part is, you can list everything for free!
i’m selling the jewelry and shoes that I no longer wear (or never did — oops!), some clothes, and even some accessories and decor. My favorite part of selling on ebay besides the whole process of cleaning out your closets and only putting what you truly use and enjoy back in (so therapeutic!) is having a bit of fun styling my items for my photos. You want your stuff to look its best and stand out, right? I suggest shooting your items on a plain backdrop (I went with pink construction paper because, duh) and shoot during the day with great natural lighting. Don’t be afraid to show your personal style by adding a few relevant props into the mix. Just be sure it’s very clear which item is being listed both in your photos and description.
