I keep seeing these ads on how to sell clothing and household items as a way to “make” money. The items being sold are items that the seller already owns.
To make money that way a person would have to sell the items for more than they paid for them so that there is a profit.
Most of the time people who sell items that they have used get less for the item than what they paid for it which means they lost money. Buying stuff and selling it for a lower price than you bought it for isn’t a way to make money it is a way to lose money.
If your closet is filled with items that you don’t need or want you might want to stop buying stuff for a while.
In the advertisements people, mostly women are using the money to pay for vacations, cars, and houses. A better and easier way to save up for a big purchase is to buy less instead of reselling used items every month.
Buying less has other advantages. It doesn’t help billionaires fund moon exploration or run for president but buying less might mean being able to live in a smaller home or apartment which can save enough money each month to pay for vacations and cars.
