Over 200+ items in these bins that have been photographed, measured, bagged and ready to be weighed and measured. This is how behind we’ve been 😂 not including some shoes and hard goods that are in the garage. *but still itching to source @thriftlovesell haha The behind the scenes of making sales is the work that actually goes into it. This took an accumulation of 9 hours over the course of a few days to complete. Thankful to have a few days off from our full time job to get some batch photography done and clear up our dining room so it looks livable again. Also grateful that our local post office gave us a few extra bins after some package drop offs during the week. Having all the items ready to be listed sitting by my desk allows me to get listings up at the end of the night. Do you batch work? Or do you photograph and list all in one shot? #ebay#ebayseller#ebaycommunity#reseller#resellercommunity#poshmark#poshmarkseller#poshmarkcommunity#mercari#reseller#resellercommunity#thriftstorefinds#sellquickshipquick
Yesterday was crazy! I was shook 🌪! In my entire thrifting career, I have only found Akris a few times. Yesterday I found 5 pairs of pants... all back to back! Then I found two pairs of Oscar de la Renta pants, new with tags. I put it on my story because I thought it was insane and unbelievable 😱All these pants were right next to each other and they were priced so good; from $4.49 to $8.49... which is crazy because that store does mark stuff up. We take these little wins where we can because we also know what it feels like to leave empty handed. If you ever; post your hauls, post your numbers or your post office packages...I am always rooting for you! This is hard work and we celebrate when we can! I’m here for your success and I want to see it 🖤 What was your best recent find ?!
1st bins trip - my favorite part? You can literally fart anywhere in the store and no one would even know. Guess how many pounds I ended up with in 1 hour?! GIVEAWAY ******Like this post and drop your guess below and I’ll buy the first winner a coffee!*******
Monday Funday! And about 10 minutes after this photo was taken we had a near blizzard kicked in! • How have your sales been so far this holiday season? Mine haven’t been too great but they’ve been steady, so I can’t complain! • • #poshmark#poshman
Я чистый воды предприниматель. У меня миллион идей. Я хочу реализовать всё. ⠀ Это создаёт проблемы. Пришло время перестроится. ⠀ Мало быть хорошим предпринимателем, чтобы вести успешный бизнес. В существующей компании должен быть человек, который из раза в раз будет делать одни и те же действия. Бизнес-процессы. Только так компания может расти. ⠀ Предприниматель открывает компанию, менеджер обеспечивает рост. ⠀ Мой бизнес на eBay встал на месте, потому что я не перестроился на менеджмент. ⠀ ⠀ Заработав хорошие деньги, я сразу захотел чего-то большего и пошёл на риск - создать компанию с часами. Мне стоило встать на ноги, выйти на новые площадки вроде Amazon, увеличить оборот товаров и добиться стабильного дохода, но я пошёл создавать свой продукт. ⠀ ⠀ Сейчас, когда наши часы готовы и риск оправдался нужно сместить акцент с новых идей на рост своих проектов. На создание мощной бизнес системы, которая будет работать практически без моего участия. ⠀ Важно❗️ ⠀ 90 процентов предпринимателей после создание компании остаются предпринимателями. Это губит вас и ваш бизнес. ⠀ ⠀ Я
Throw back to last December when being above 10k was not nearly as regular of an occurrence. Now I’m finishing up the year where I was below 20k for maybe 10 days total back in August. It’s crazy how quickly everything grew!
Do the research before you search 👍🏽 Today I decided to go to Last Chance which is Nordstrom's final clearance and close out location. There are only two in the entire country. One in Phoenix (which I could have gone to while I was at Poshfest 2019 but didn't!) and the other one is about 30 min from Chicago. 🤗 I hopped into a car and did a little research on the way as to what to expect and hoped for the best! I wanted to find out: are there special sales days? special discount color tags? what's the return/exchange policy? etc. It made searching that much easier and faster. Time > money! As soon as I got to the Last Chance, I found the nearest sales associate. I asked her for some tips about what to look for, and any other promotions that they had going on. She kindly let me know that blue was the color that was 50% off this week, and if I ever forgot to look at a sales associate because they wear the same color T-shirt that they have on sale for the week. That was helpful! Later in the week the discount goes up to 80% 😱 she also let me know to be aware of the lines forming, as people got a little aggressive, but you know that anytime I saw a line forming I quickly moved to get to the front! 🔥 Knowing that the sale color tag was blue and that lines meant new items coming out, really helped me to know what was going on and to optimize the time that I was there today. I'm happy to say that I did a ton of research on recent completed sales and walked out with what I believe will profit me at least 3X my cost! 🤞🏽 ❓What are your thoughts and experiences with retail arbitrage?

THRIFT STORE TIP: These two pictures are the EXACT SAME items, in the same spot, roughly 10 minutes apart. The difference? The first picture is my “pre” picture, before I have gone through my finds, and the second is my “post” picture! ✨ After I have found everything I am going to buy for the stop, I head over to the furniture section, take a seat, and then take off all the hangers and fold my items! This has several benefits: - Forces me to take a second look at my items - I have caught lots of hidden flaws this way! 👌🏼 - It allows me to find out how much I am getting and get a general idea of how much I can spend - And finally (and most importantly), it makes check out SO MUCH FASTER. We walk up, I hand them the hangers, set down my folded items, they scan and they put it in my (reusable) bag. This easily cuts checkout time in half, and is so much better for the people checking us out. So next time you go thrifting, take the extra few minutes to get all your items folded up in your cart….youll thank me later! 🙌🏻 #poshmark#poshmarkhustle#posh#poshboss#reseller#resellercommunity#posher#resellerlife#resell#poshmarkcommunity#poshersofinstagram#smallbusiness#sidehustle#bossbabe#ebay#mercari#sales#thrifter#thriftandflip#thiftstoretips#poshmarktips#poshtips
Turns out these DVD's weren't sealed and new, but they're still in great shape and will still bring over $100 each. Look what was inside one of them....$60! Yes! 😂 I've found cash in clothing pockets, but never in anything else, and not this much! 💰💰
4 tips to make your time worth the money 💰 As I shared yesterday, I'm sourcing in Chicago and I had an EPIC thrift haul! (Working on a video to share with you all). It was my first time sourcing in the Midwest and I have very limited time, so I have to be as efficient as possible at the thrifts. I am constantly analyzing my profits and losses in my business in order to ensure everything is healthy. 📈 One area, however, that can be a little sneakier to track is the cost of my time spent. Especially since sourcing is so fun for me! However, unless I am intentional and measure and track and improve this area, I risk wasting more time than needed. TIME > MONEY ⏰>💰 I've been working on systems and processes to get more efficient to maximize my time and therefore profits. Speaking of, check out my last post to see how I got $100 off my total goodwill purchase! 🤑 Here are some ways I try to be more efficient while sourcing, especially while traveling: 💫I put a timer on my watch and I try to stay within 20 minute increments in different sections of the thrift store 💫Visit highest profit margin sections first (for me that would be shoes, jackets, dresses and denim) 💫Sort items into 3 piles ➡️ items that are damaged or too worn-to be put back ➡️ items I know will sell and the price is right- take off hangers and put immediately into cart ☺️ ➡️ items I’m not too familiar with, may need further research - check recent completed sales of similar items 💫Be okay walking away knowing you may have left some treasures So many of us have limited time to source due to schedules and busy lives so I'm hoping these tips can be helpful for you! 🤗 ❓What're some of your BEST time saving tips?❓ #teachtothrift#poshmarktips#poshmark#resellerlife#thrifthaul
Who else is literally glued to the sweater section? My favorite section is actually the winter coats so I source like crazy this time of year! What has been your best find lately? • • #poshmark#sweaterweather
I have 123 pieces to measure, photograph, and list this week! 🤪 I’ve shared my sourcing schedule with you in the past, but when I need to ramp up my inventory, I go a little harder and source every day during those weeks. Now, I’ve got my work cut out for me, and I’ll be spending the next few days before Thanksgiving, taking photographs, measurements, inventory-ing and listing all these items! Here’s how I list SUPER fast. ( I’ve got a YouTube tutorial video in the works! I’m even writing an official lesson plan for this one. Once a teacher, always a teacher 😍) 1️⃣ I take all my notes for an item (I include style name, condition, size, measurements, and material) in my Notes app on my MacBook Pro when I am photographing. (Efficiency is key, so it is my goal to touch my item only once so I photograph, measure and inventory all at the same time). The Notes app is great b/c it automatically syncs with my Notes app on my iPhone so I can later upload listings on the go. 2️⃣ When I am ready to list, I open up one Safari browser with 4 separate tabs (my inventory Google sheet, Poshmark, eBay, Mercari). 3️⃣ I open my Photos and Notes and drag/drop and copy/paste onto the different platform tabs which allows me to cross list my pieces on 3 different platforms within minutes! I’ve mentioned that I love giving myself small challenges while photographing and listing, and so by now I know that it takes me about 5 minutes to photograph, measure, inventory and list (on 3 platforms) one item. Each piece I try to beat that 5 min goal. This rack will likely take 10 hours of time this week. Luckily, I’ve got Netflix to keep me entertained! I have already worked through entire series of shows: Gilmore Girls, The Office (twice!), Hart of Dixie, Pretty Little Liars, & Gossip Girl. ❓What do you like to do in the background while you work?❓ #poshmarktips#poshboss#poshmark#ebay#ebayseller
