"you've gotta be a fighter, you'll get knocked down again and again, you gotta get back up, dust yourself off and keep going" Peter Andre

We've all been in this situation.. After realizing your wardrobe is 95% filled with clothes which are no longer any use to you.. they're either over-worn, out of fashion, not suitable for the weather, or no longer fit. It's time for a wardrobe clear-out to make way for new clothes which you are actually going to wear! 

But what do you do with the 10'000 bin liners full of old clothes you no longer want!? If you're anything like us, you get attached to these clothes and it's not easy to just throw them away.. Wouldn't you rather make money out of them?

Although these clothes are probably absolutely no use to you any more, to somebody somewhere, they are - That is why it is so easy to recycle clothes these days, And many people are feeling the pinch after Christmas so it is always good to earn yourself that little bit of extra money. We've put together the three best ways to make money out of your old clothes..

EBAY: Ebay is the obvious first choice for selling old clothes, Although it can feel a little like homework when you have a lot of clothes to sell.. doing a detailed listing for every single item and ensuring the items arrive to the buyer safe and in time. Ebay is best for selling items you know there will be a demand for (EG: popular designer brands), where you know there could be a bidding war. Buyers can pay straight into your paypal or bank account, and the more positive feedback you have, the more buyers will trust you. Sign up and begin selling at www.ebay.co.uk

MUSIC MAGPIE: We've all seen their TV adverts about recycling old CD's and DVD's.. But did you know that they now also do clothes collection for cash ? This is the easiest way to recycle old clothes.. You just enter the brand and garment type for each item into the search bar on the website and get their value. If you're selling 25+ items, you can just box them up and they will collect them via their FREE courier service. You can choose to receive your payment via Bank Transfer, Cheque or E-vouchers.. Visit http://www.musicmagpie.co.uk to get started!

CAR BOOT SALE: Car Boot Sales are best for those who like to be hands on with their selling, and you can even get the whole family involved in helping you sell your items! Visit http://www.carbootjunction.com/ to find local car boot sales, seller information and advice for if it is your first time selling at a car boot sale.
