Tip Tuesday :: Making Some Summertime Ca$h
With summer just underway, we can only assume your calendar is starting to fill with pool parties, BBQs, weddings, and all those vacations! And in order to enjoy all the fun that summer has to offer, you most likely will have to drop a pretty penny to be able to swing all those activities. We'd hate for you to miss out on all the fun and leave you feeling a little like Lana Del Ray in her song, "Summertime Sadness." Good thing NEAT has got you covered on some ways to make quick cash…while also leaving you a little more organized! Because lets be real, isn't that always our priority?!
1. Consign "Unloved" Clothes — Time to clean out that closet and make room for all your summer clothes! All that winter gear that never found its way into rotation or clothes you just know you will never wear this summer…time to sell and/or take to consignment! A few of our favorites include: Luxury Garage Sale, The RealReal, Crossroads Trading Co, The Sophisticate and eDrop-Off.
2. Consign Unused Furniture – You know exactly what we are talking about! Those items piled high in your garage and/or storage unit… that as much as you "love" you are just never going to actually find a home for it within your home. Make a little quick cash, by consigning and selling. Other than the standard Craig's List route, a few of our local favorites include:
Dallas – Area 25 :: San Diego – Polo Bay in Solana Beach :: Chicago & San Francisco – Chairish and Hunters Alley :: South Florida – Curiosities Auction House :: Twin Cities – The Wabi Sabi Shop and Mainstreet Furniute & Consignment :: Wahsington DC – Lucketts ::
Now that you've cleared a little more space in your closet and gotten those unused furniture pieces out the door, it's time to put that hard earned money to good use! Get out and enjoy that SUMMER SUNSHINE!
