Getting Ready for the 2013 Spring Sale, What I’m Doing Part 1

Prepping for a Kids Consignment  SaleI’m a consignor just like you.  Due to my past resale/ hoarding experiences, I still have thousands of items to list.  Yes, that is correct.  Thousands.

I know that everyone has different ways of listing and preparing their items, but I am sharing my “system” that seems to be working.  I am basing this on my learning experiences (i.e. lack of organization) during my process last Fall, and a lot of thinking about what worked well and what could be improved.

  • Organizing and purging.  I threw dated items away and separated my non-clothing items into “to be listed” piles based on their likeness.
  • I went through all of the tubs with “miscellaneous” pieces and put related items like books, play food, etc. together in ziploc baggies.  I found the blocks that go with a toddler toy and the balls with another larger toy.  I wiped and cleaned my larger items.
  • I had listed a large amount of clothing in the prior months.  I made sure the items were laundered and wrinkle free and hung them in the order they were listed.  I put plastic bags over them to protect them and labeled the bags with the item numbers.  The only thing left to do is print the tags and attach them.SavvyKidsConsignment-4986
  • I did the same with this tub of listed books.  They are just waiting for the tags to be printed and attached.

While I am still working on perfecting my “system”, I will continue to post how I am preparing my own items for the Savvy Sale.  Feel free to share helpful or unique tips that you have found works for you as well.

So, I am off to finish hanging.  If you don’t hear from me, I am buried under thousands of items.  Send help.
