Donating Clothes vs. Selling to a Consignment Store

A woman looks confused while standing in a closet full of clothesWhen it comes to clearing some extra closet clutter at home, two of the most popular options are to donate your clothing or to try to sell it to a consignment store. To understand the difference between donating clothes versus selling to a consignment store, as well as to help you decide what your best option is, explore the basics here:

Selling to a Consignment Store

We’d all like a little extra cash here and there, which can make selling your no-longer-needed clothing to a consignment store seem like an attractive option. However, this process can require you to jump through hoops and go out of your way just to get to the store—and they may not even accept your items once you get there! Plus, the money you get in return for your items is a slim portion of what they’ll be sold back for, so it may not be worth the hassle to begin with.

Donating Clothing

If organizing your space and doing some good while you’re at it sounds great to you, donating your clothing is likely the way to go. Along with being a simpler process than trying to sell to a consignment store near you, donating clothing helps provide vital funding to charitable organizations such as the American Kidney Fund.
