Clearing my closet with Carousell!

January 7, 2017

Happy New Year everyone! I can’t believe it’s 2017 already!

New Years is such a busy time we often forget that we have so much unused clothes building in our closet. How many times in the year have you bought a piece that you didn’t end up using? Or only used once because it was so glam and special that you wanted it for that one special event. I don’t know about you but there are so many dresses and clothes in my wardrobe that fall under those two categories it’s literally ready to burst out of my bedroom closet. What I used to do with these clothes were throw them away or give them away to friends or family. The amount of clothes we go through as bloggers is ridiculous and I would hate to see it go to waste after I used it once or twice only. Luckily recently I discovered an app called Carousell!

This app allows me to sell my blogging wardrobe (especially the ones I only use once or twice and are practically brand new!). The steps to do this are so easy and I’ll run you through them below:

Download the Carousell App via the App Store!

This is super easy especially since I use an iphone it’s literally just going into the app store and downloading the app into my phone. Once you open this up you can sign in with your facebook or google account – it’s as simple as that! (Alternatively you can sign up via the website











Once you have signed in you can go ahead and list an item by clicking the Sell button up at the top right. You will then see a page where you can upload a photo, describe the item and list your item for the price you want! carousell3Here I’ve done a tutorial showing me listing my Zimmermann Dress!

After you list your item you should be able to see it pop up on your profile page just like mine!

carousell2Once you completed this you can go back to step 2 to start listing another item you want to sell!

Isn’t it fantastic? This way your clothes also won’t go to waste! This is what I’m doing during my New Years clean up and it’s a fantastic way to make some extra cash you didn’t know you could get!

Another good tip for getting rid of clothes you don’t need is to start the year with your clothes hanger facing towards you! Each time you use a piece of clothing hang it back the normal way facing away from you. Once you get to the end of this year you’ll know exactly which pieces haven’t even been used once throughout the year and it will help you to declutter and sell off these pieces! Hope this handy tip helped you and I hope to see some of your fantastic items listed on the app soon !

As a mom and kindergarten teacher I always look for ways to recycle to set an example for my kids and students and what better way than recycling clothes and also earning a bit of cash. I also love the fact I can shop for YOUR stuff ! Downloading and setting up an account now so look for me !

    It’s fantastic how you get to use the Carousell App to sell your stuff Mandy! And actually I’m using the Singapore version of it to sell my gadgets & beauty products gifted to me during events. Not sure if you encountered any demanding buyers who enjoy low-balling your listed items or go missing after agreeing to buy your items though cuz it’s pretty rampant in Singapore and we actually renamed the app to CarouHELL. That said, Carousell is indeed a helpful app in helping us sell our stuff 😀

  • Christine Kong January 9, 2017 at 10:47 AM

    Wow, this looks way too easy so someone like me has no excuse! I definitely need to look into this especially because like you said, we have one too many clothes that just go to waste after shooting it. Thanks for sharing this app and I definitely need to start making some money from selling my clothes. =) Hopefully I won’t end up shopping more on this. Hehe. xoxo, Christine

  • Michelle January 11, 2017 at 2:59 AM

    Sounds like a great app – I need to clean out my closet ASAP already. I’ve heard to than hanger trick but it wouldn’t work for me because I’m always pulling things out and trying them on LOL – and there are some pieces I haven’t worn in years and then they come back in style.

    This is such a great service, I’m going to sign up for it. Thanks for sharing. xx

  • Maggie January 11, 2017 at 10:54 AM

    I use a really similar app in the States called Poshmark and I think it’s one of the best creations ever! It’s just so easy to use and super convenient! They need to set up a global one that works well with shipping then I can shop your closet! Lol.

    Thank you for sharing this app with us! I like to clear my closet out at the beginning of each year. Its crazy how many clothes one buys over the course of a year! I usually end up donating to charity, but if I ever do decide to sell I will be sure to use this! Xo

  • Rachel Holliday January 11, 2017 at 9:13 PM

    This is the best idea! Its always great to clear out our wardrobes every so often and if it can get us more money for important things **cough** shoes **cough** all the better! You’ve inspired me to do a clear out babe

    I am using Carousell in Singapore and it sure is good in helping me clear a portion of my wardrobe! But that said the app also allows me to spot good deals and finds and I am kinda back at square one. 🤣

    You are totally right that we go through a ridiculous amount of clothes as bloggers and me being environmentally aware makes it feel even worse if the clothes aren’t used by anyone. This app sounds really good and I’ll check out if they also provide their services in Europe 🙂 And I loved the idea of hanging in the the clothes in one direction to by the end of the year see if they have been used or not!!

  • Manda January 12, 2017 at 6:34 AM

    I am definitely going to be using your tip about the hangers! What a great idea! Also, I need to load this app. I have boxes of items that I need to put up even after I’ve given items away to family and friends! Such a great post and thanks for all the information!

    I will definitely be using this app very soon.
    Wishing you a very sweet and happy New Year 2017

  • Josie January 12, 2017 at 1:41 PM

    Thank you for this post explaining all the steps! It’s really appreciated. I have listed some of my items on a similar app but I haven’t made any sell so I think I need to try Carousell! The tip for the hangers is kinda genius! Thanks for sharing it with us Mandy!

    Bisous, Josie

  • Katya Bychkova January 12, 2017 at 1:57 PM

    I saw your Instagram posts about this app and it seems even more amazing when I read about it on the blog! I have so many unnecessary pieces of clothes that I also need to sell or donate! I’ll definitely check out the app!

  • Ravayna January 12, 2017 at 4:51 PM

    I do the clothes hanger trick and it’s really effective! I just cleared out tons of stuff that I need to donate or sell- will check out carousell to do so!

  • Jacqueline January 13, 2017 at 1:43 PM

    Oh my god! That’s such an amazing idea. I always go through a seasonal purge and I actually had to give away a lot of clothes when I first moved. Love this! Definitely looking into this for my next spring cleaning!

  • Kayla Amadasun January 13, 2017 at 1:52 PM
