$1,000. You heard right! I had no idea I had made that much money in a few short months by cleaning out my closet but I recently looked at my total sales so far and it was a little over $1,000! I couldn’t believe it! And it honestly couldn’t have been easier! So how did I make $1,000?? PoshMark! Poshmark is the easiest way to sell your gently used clothes! Selling your items can be done in minutes on your phone using the Poshmark app! Unlike ebay and other companies, they pay for the shipping! That was my biggest reason for trying out Poshmark. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve lost money on ebay from the shipping! When an item sells on Poshmark they simply email you a label and you use a free usps box (you order these boxes online and they come to your door..for freee!) and then simply package up your sold items and stick them in the mailbox! It is that simple!
A Few Tips:
Order these and thesefree boxes (These sizes fit perfectly in my mailbox, this way I don’t have to go to the Post Office)
Price everything fairly, items that are priced too high will not get you sales. Yes you may have paid $50 for that sweater but now its worth about $10. I would rather sell lots of clothing for cheap and get PAID rather than having it all sit in my closet still.
Take good quality pictures that really show the clothing for what it is, do not ever try to deceive your buyers because you want to build a trustworthy relationship with them
Offer a discount bundle (I offer 15% off when you buy 2 or more items)
Have a printer at home
Get fun colored or printed tissue paper to wrap up your clothes in
Include a thank note
Send everything that sells ASAP! The quicker you send an item the quicker you get $$$
Use my code ” JWCKK ” when signing up for the Poshmark app & you will automatically have a $5 credit! Wish I had this code when I signed up!
Be sure to check my personal Poshmark accountbecause I am adding new items daily and still have so much more to list! My username is @alexaelizabeth
Hi Instagam + SnapChat Friends!

This is by far my most favorite gift guide yet! I am the definition of a homebody! I love nothing more than being cozied up at home! I love to wear fluffy socks, having an afternoon cup of hot tea in a cozy mug, & wrapped up in a furry throw! And for Copper to be curled up next to me which is currently doing as I type this! Oh the puppy snuggles are just the best! I hope you enjoy this gift guide and let me know if there are any more gift guides you would like to see!
All of these cute items are my favorite ideas for stocking stuffers! I LOVE makeup! What girl doesn’t?! And I am always watching makeup tutorials, so makeup is the best gift ever in my book! I linked all of the makeup I use + the colors that I use! I am also a huge coffee drinker! Love me some coffee! So of course I want coffee mugs!(Even though my hubby might have a mini heart attack if I get one more mug!) But I say the more the merrier when it comes to mugs because they just bring so much joy in the mornings! I linked a few adorable mugs above! I also love anything cozy! Especially cozy/fuzzy socks and I found these and these that are 3 pairs for $18! SCORE! Cozy scarves ($10) also make amazing Christmas gifts! Also I love any kind of yummy smelling body washes and hand soaps!My favorite ones are from Ulta which are buy 2 get 2 free right now! So many good deals going on right now!
You can’t forget Christmas pajamas! I linked a few adorable pairs above, But my all time favorite pj’s are from Victoria’s Secret. And right now all of the MOST LOVED Pajama setsare $39.50!! Score! Shop HERE! You can’t go wrong with any of them! I do love these!
If you guys have never heard of Shop the Mint, you are in for a real treat! They have the cutest clothing and have great price points! I am in love with these slouchy tops! I also have one in olive! I basically live in them, if you follow me on snapchat you will see me running around town in them all the time. Thanks to Shop the Mint, I can give my readers a special discount on them! You can shop them for HALF OFF through this link! Trust me, order them while you can at this special price! I need to order more colors because two is just not enough!
Also I just love living in such a small town that goes all out for Christmas. Last weekend we had the festival of trees and it was so gorgeous with over 100 different themed trees, so naturally the next day we had to put our tree up! I just love waking up to a decorated Christmas tree. Can’t wait to share more details on our tree and other Christmas decor! Make sure you are checking out my Christmas Wish List page regularly and looking out for my Christmas gift guides!
I don’t know about you guys but one of our most favorite places to go for Christmas decor + shopping is Pottery Barn! I just LOVE the coziness of the faux fur throws, the rustic decor + the overall feel of the store. I wish my whole house could be decked out in PB for Christmas! We slowly adding more & more each year to our PB Christmas collection! This year we are focusing more on PLAID + a cabin in the woods rustic feel for our Christmas decor! I thought what better way to kick off my first Christmas Gift Guide than what we are using for our own Christmas decor and shopping! Enjoy clicking through all the plaid madness & keep checking back daily for Christmas shopping tips & ideas!
