The time has come for me to get rid of the numerous boxes of kids clothes that I have had in storage.

Kathie,Thats ALOT of clothes!! I would sell them on ebay. My girlfriend buys nice used outfits all the time.I think this would be a perfect way to find a new home for the clothes and a little extra cash doesn't hurt either. Good luck!

I have sold and bought off of ebay. Some people seem to make quite a bit of money on it. I didn't do it that much, and wasn't in it to make money. It seems that name brand clothes sell really well. You could put a few outfits together and sell them as a group. It typically cost just under a $1 to list something. If anything, start the bidding at .99 to get attention and to cover your listing fee. Remember to take nice photos and have good descriptions.

Something I have found to be less time consuming is to sell the clothes to children's clothing resale shops. I have 3 in my area. The money is so-so. Anything they don't take I donate to the Youth Ranch so that I can write it off as charitable donations.

One thing to keep in mind when reselling...only sell things for that coming season. Like right now our resale shops will not accept spring/summer clothing until after the new year.

Hope this helps,
