It's wel worth investing the time in doing it. I've made £500 in the last 6 months selling off all sorts. My 44G bras which cost over £60 each originally have even been snapped up!!

God girls that makes me feel inadequate :D !! Think I'll be doing a lot of recycling from now on! Well it is good for the environment,eh?

indeed, plus it gives you more money to spend on your new wardrobe! Just do a few things a week and the money will soon build up x

Hi TI, I usually give my work stuff to Charity,but sell the good stuff on Ebay.It is worth considering and as Rachel says a couple of items a week wouldn't be too difficult to cope with.

I've just sold a few bits on ebay for the first time, and not really knowing what to do, I think I got a bit shafted. For example, a brand new, with tags Hobbs cocktail dress, cost £180, and I got £8.49 for it :cry: Ah well, I could never wear it as it's too big (and I aint going back up :D) so I guess £8.49 is better than a poke in the eye (marginally!!)

I take pics of everything as they tend to sell better. I was off work for a week last summer and did loads. The dining room looked like a mail sorting office! I've done car boot sales too. 50p a go for all my t shirts and blouses, it all adds u nicely. Went towards a gorgeous winter coat. It's recycling my old life to pay for my new one!
I did have tonnes of clothes as I was such a yo yo dieter so had basically a full wardrobe in eveery size from 18 to 26. It all gone now though so there's no going back!!

lucy, key to the expensive items is to put a higher starting price. I learnt my lesson from selling a jaegar dress that was £299 for 99p! I've found that if you start something even at £50, if you've put the original price, people will often bid. It's just if there aren't enough people to have a bidding war, the end price doesn't go up high enough. Keep going though, it's worth it!

Cheers Rachel, that was definitely the issue, I put everything at 99p start price, so some people have got some stunning items shocklingly cheap! Never mind, I won't make the same mistake again! x

hi i've just made £124.00 on ebay so it is definitely well worth it!

still got loads more clothes to go so should make a fair bit more. all these clothes would have gone to charity so the extra money will certainly come in handy for a new wardrobe.

i took photos of things hanging on a door or on the bed and also i would add in measurements otherwise you'll get lots of questions later which is a bit time consuming. and definitely start off from a price you wouldn't mind selling it for. i've had to put a few things on at a lower price now but every penny is money i wouldn't have otherwise so it's a win -win situation.

i've got a lot of packing and posting to do tomorrow now! ;)

Hi Catgirl, Well done.I was at the post office today,and have another pile of clothes waiting to be ironed to go on soon.Just as well I'm back at work next week-I think it could get quite addictive!There is something pleasing about getting paid for stuff thats just in the wardrobe,even though I invariably make a loss!

Well done all you E-bayers

Makes me realise I must get my head around it and get cracking (now I have given most of my old stuff to charity!)
I asked a friend of mine to show me how to do it, but he couldn't be bothered. I hope it's easy.:sigh:

Really easy SB.All you need to do is make sure stuff is clean and ironed,pictured and priced appropriatelyphew............Its just about setting aside some time to organise I suppose.

I thought about ebaying all of my clothes but then I thought about friends and family. I know some of them are the sizes that I used to be so I am going to hold a clothes party.

I am going to get all my friends/family around, put out a few nibbles and drinks, put some good music on and hopefully sell some of my clothes.

I have so many that I never even wore or only wore a couple of times. At least I will know they will go to a good home.

I have also thought about advertising them on here as well. There are always people needing the sizes that you don't.

So well done on all the money you have made. I bet you feel a million dollars now x x
