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.
- 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.
