Reseller Organizing Hacks

Utilizing wall space for everyday shipping supplies.

I’m all about saving money and being practical. In the beginning of my reselling journey I kept all my shipping supplies in a tub. Every time I mad a sale, i’d pull out the tub and wrap my package on the kitchen table. Every time. Every sale. Yes, I know, why?

I remember seeing a storage hack on Pinterest using these wall organizers to arrange snacks in the pantry. Genius! These have other uses in other places! I actually have mine mounted on the wall and keep all my shipping supplies within close reach. Shipping and packaging is a lot easier having a designated area.

Why you should relist on Poshmark

Relisting stale unsold items on Poshmark works!

If you participate in CCO, you drop the price by 10%, and hope someone bites. Another CCO comes around! You drop the price again, no one bites. Hold on, there will be another CCO in a few days. Now your item is priced too low with too many likers, they weren’t going to buy anyway. Relist.

Offer to likers, great idea!!! Every person that ‘liked’ your item gets the offer with discounted shipping. Every person that had ever ‘liked’ the item gets alerted every time you drop the price even lower, this can make you look desperate after too many offers. Relist.

Users will ‘like’ an item for different reasons. Some actually like the item and hope you make an offer. Some sellers will like an item and save it when looking up comps. Party hosts will ‘like’ an item for a possible future host pick. Some will even ‘like’ an item and plan on buying someday, way in the future, like when they win the lottery. And, yes, some will throw you a ‘like’ thinking this is instagram, with no intention of every buying anything.

Relist those items, check the title and description for errors. Retake new photos if necessary. Get some new eyes on your closet and a better chance for sales.

Common Key terms used in Reselling

Reseller Must Have Items- Tag Gun

A Garment label or tagger gun is a reseller must!

Ever find a new with tag item and get super excited! Like score! Major money maker! Only to find later that it needs to be treated for a minor flaw or the tag falls off. What to do? This is where a tagging gun comes in handy.

There are so many available to choose from. The price levels are not too bad either, mine was about $8. You can easily reattach tags to items that need to be thrown in the dryer, dry cleaned, or just reattach tags that won’t stay.

I mainly use the gun for the gifts I include with most of my sales, which is a cute pair of new socks with my personalized ‘Thank you’ card attached. Picture below shows my gift and the gun I use.

Free USPS Boxes

Best boxes to use are the free ones, am I right?

When shipping Priority mail packages for ebay, Mercari and Poshmark, I try my best to use USPS Boxes. Click on the link, make an account and order your boxes. I reorder often before running out. Shipping times can vary, depending on the time of the year, so plan ahead. Here is a list of the ones I keep in stock.

Must Have Reseller Items – packing tape

Tape, Packing tape, shipping tape, it’s a must have.

I have been reselling for some time now and have locked in my choice. Doing my best to keep costs low is very important in my business.

The best pricing I have found is to always buy in bulk.

Amazon has the best pricing. Choose 6, 8 or 12 rolls of tape, (either 2 inch or 3 inch). + hand held tape dispenser gun. This is an amazing deal. I currently have 2 guns, 1 for clear tape and 1 for USPS priority mail tape. I have recently ordered the tape only packages where you choose your size and quantity.

Reseller Must Have Items- storage bags

Keeping listed items in clear numbered bags has been the biggest time saver.

The bags everyone seems to use are the Great Value extra large twist tie bread bags. This bag will fit folded tops and most dresses. Bigger items such as hoodies and coats will not fit into this bag. Most of my items go into these bags after they have been laundered, steamed, photographed, listed, numbered and put away in their bins.

For the bigger items, I use the clear can liners. These work great for hoodies, jeans, coats and fluffier dresses.
