That's so cool! Where do you usually find the pre-owner designer clothing?

Thanks! estatesales.net can be really helpful for this. You can buy in as large or small a quantity that way. Additionally, writing to consignment stores in your area and asking if they would be interested in selling any items in bulk that haven't sold and the original donors/customers have surrendered, can be a wonderful way! Obviously, garage sales too.

That's great @Six on a Budget , and congratulations on your success. Thanks for pointing out the " ten years later ", because people must accept the fact that it takes time to build a Castle. What I have done to make money from home? Blogging with affiliate marketing is what fascinates me most. Along with publishing articles and eBooks. But must admit that SEO nearly got the better of me. Luckily there's nothing that research and persistence cannot remedy.

I have incorporated a "side hustle" mindset into my every day routine. If I am cleaning out my closet and ready to donate some clothes, I'll first take them to a consignment shop where I can get cash on the spot for them. If I a moving, I'll list my items on Facebook Marketplace before donating them or passing them along to a friend.

I sold pre-owned women's designer clothing on eBay. I still do, ten years later. I love it. What have you done to make money from home?

Anybody else at a weird crossroads with clothes? And how do you save?

Grace Schweizer ·
It’s been a long 18 months. In that time, our lifestyles have changed, our habits have changed, our needs have changed, our bodies have changed and our budgets have changed. Thankfully, my shopaholic days are behind me, but I do still enjoy playing around with my personal style and putting together outfits that make me feel like my best self. It’s a form of expression I value, so I budget for it. I’m still working remotely, so I don’t yet need to revamp my work wardrobe, but I am tired of...

Surprisingly you can find good quality clothes at the thrift stores. Especially the family owned ones. I have found brand names and one time an Angora sweater never worn. It takes a lot more time to sort thru and match colors, but for me it is a lot of fun. I usually plan a day of it and just go around to the best stores I have found near me and go for it. Sandee

Thankfully, I'm not much of a fashion person. I stopped buying clothes about 4 years ago and very little of what I have from then has worn out. I'm planning retirement. All to say, I had/have way too many clothes and I just can't justify spending money on more. I guess if I had consigned my clothes when they still were sellable (did you know clothes have a "sell by date"?, I wouldn't feel bad about buying new or thrifting. I didn't do that so here we are. I'm testing myself to see how long I...

The thrift stores are helpful, not so much for me, but my husband loves them. He loves the challenge of finding something that he likes, sigh, he especially drawn to cargo pants.What can I say.

I went from a size 8 to a 22 in under a year due to thyroid problems, then back problems due to too much weight. I have a walk-in closet FILLED with my way to small clothes with no room to hang up the few clothes that fit me now. I love the idea of thrift stores, but I can't stand up long enough to find what I need. I found a rather pricey thrift store online called “Thred Up”, and they give you measurements of each piece, which is very helpful. They also rate the condition each piece is in.

Same here, @irishnanny . There was one addition that I was taught though...to make a circle or loop twist or two with the thread between the button and fabric before making the first stitch in a hole. This ensures that the button holds fast.

I can’t remember who in my family (mom, dad, aunt or grandpa) taught me how to sew a button. This video is a great refresher. Thank you!

I learned how to sew a button about 52 years ago from my mother, she taught us, kids, a lot of things while growing up, and told us we needed to learn because she would not always be around to help us. Plus in the Military, you had to sew your buttons onto your uniform.
