Lesson Planning: Spring Cleaning for Cash

imageMy closet needed an extreme makeover! I recently lost 20 pounds and I owned a few too many things that no longer fit. I had a trip to Vegas planned for spring break and I knew we were going to be stopping at the outlet malls along the way. Could I clean out my closet and make a few extra dollars to spend at the outlets in Barstow and Primm? It turns out, that it is possible. I found a store in Costa Mesa called Crossroads Trading Co. that buys your clothes for cash or store credit. You can earn 35% of the retail price in cash or 50% in store credit.   The Crossroads website had a great tutorial for first time sellers and I found it to be really helpful.  The store only buys in-season clothing, in good condition.  I made three trips to the store and ended up making about $150.  It was a win/win situation!  My closet is cleaner and my wallet is fuller!

    at you will definitely harm how excited they really are in your
    corner. Don’t work too hard to figure out anything perhaps
    perplexing as you go along (this ain’t “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”).
