How-to make money on the clothes you don't want this spring season

Clean Out Your Closet For Cash

Cleaning out your closet to prepare for spring?

Now is the perfect time to make some cash off the clothes you want to get rid of. As we already know, local consignment shops can be picky, and usually don't pay as much. Luckily, there are some great online options that not only make selling easier, but also can potentially get you more money for your unwanted garments.

If you're looking for the biggest bang for your buck, check out Tradesy. This site will sell any brand of clothing you have, as long as it's in good condition. Plus and petite sizes aren't a problem, even maternity and bridal wear are accepted. All you have to do to start is take a few photos of your items and assign your price. If your're not sure how much you should charge, they can suggest a rate for you.

Once your item sells, they will send you a free prepaid shipping kit complete with packaging. They'll even handle returns, so you don't have to. Best of all, Tradesy only takes a 9% commission; which is the lowest of all the online consignment sites.

What if getting the highest price for your clothes isn't quite as important to you as some quick cash. If that's the case, check out Twice. They pay instantly even if your items don't sell.

To get started, request a free selling kit to mail Twice your items. No need to worry about the shipping, it's free. Upon receiving your items, the site will make you an offer, and you can get paid right away. You can even use their handy pay-out calculator, to see which brands the site excepts, and how much cash you can potentially make.

Keep in mind, while this site might not earn you as much as you'll get elsewhere, if you're a casual seller trying to unload some designer clothes, this system can still be great for making a quick buck.

So this season, why not squeeze a few dollars out of your old clothes. Give these sites a try, and you'll see that you can keep your closet clean, and make a tidy profit as well.

How-to make money on the clothes you don't want this spring season

Get Your Toaster Sparkling

Toasters can get remarkably icky, what with all the crumbs that accumulate. Peter’s simple hack involves affixing a paper towel to the end of a pencil with a rubber band, then swishing it around inside the (unplugged of course!) toaster. Then, simply release the crumb tray on the bottom, and use a hair dryer to blast out all the rest of the crumbs.

Tip: Use a half lemon with salt to buff the outside of your toaster (and other metal appliances), then spray with vinegar and polish with a paper towel for an intense shine!

Use this Secret Ingredient to Clean Discolored Pans

We all have pans that we love that just don’t look as great as they could after heavy use. Peter’s brilliant solution? Use denture-cleaning tablets and hot water to soak the stains right out!

Tip: If the first treatment doesn’t work, add more hot water and denture tabs and let soak overnight.

Clean all the Gunk Out of Your Microwave

Soak a sponge with water, dish soap and vinegar, then put it in the microwave for three minutes. After the time is up, use the wet sponge to wipe down the microwave. The condensation will soften the gunk and it will wipe right off!

Tip: Let the sponge cool slightly before wiping – it will be hot!
