Closet clean for extra cash with a little help from my BuJo! – Part 2: eBaying made easy

In my last post you will have seen me tackle the mountain that is my wardrobe and sort a pile of items to list on eBay for some extra cash.

With a big pile of items to list I decided to use my Bullet Journal to help make the process easier and keep track of what I was selling. I put together a spread to capture all the main information I need to remember:

I then went about photographing each item, keeping note in my journal of size and brand details.

To show the items off to their best I utilise my mannequin. Without one of these I would suggest hanging your items against a contrasting back drop.

I also utilised a handy hair clip to make the items fit the mannequin a little better for a more realistic image of what the item will look like when worn:

When I had all the items photographed and detailed in my journal I could then list the items one by one using the eBay app.

Try to include as many descriptive words as possible in the item listing. Consider what you would search for if you were looking for that item.

I also try to consider when the listing will end and aim for a weekend if possible as I like to think this will be when a buyer might have more time to focus on getting a last minute bid in!

Finally, make sure you research realistic postal costs so that you don’t end up losing money.

Now it’s time to wait for your items to sell. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for any messages from perspective buyers and answer promptly if possible.

Once sold it’s time to pack up the items. This is my least favourite part of the process but I found a shortcut that makes it all a lot less painful; postal bags!

These I bought on Amazon – £6 for 100 Assorted Sizes. Perfect for posting clothes and much easier than brown paper and tape and cheaper than Jiffy bags.

Pop the item in, add the address label and boom, all ready to be posted in seconds!

And that’s it, wardrobe cleanse complete.

I’d love to hear how you use your bullet journel to aid your spring clean, I’m off to sort the next room 🤓

I live in Essex in the UK with my gaggle of furry friends including Daisy the dog. I have had lifetime passion/obsession for beautiful stationery and to do lists which has lead me to the wonderful world of Bullet journals. When I first starting bullet journaling it struck me the lack of UK based resources for journal accessories which lead me to create my own. I know have my very own webshop selling my hand made journal stencils and ship all over the world and am just as enthusiastic as I ever was about stationery and organisation!!
