Purging Your Closet? These Are the Top 8 Brands on Resale Sites

The latest stats about consumerism are enough to make you cut up your credit card and commit to a closet purge. According to a ClosetMaid survey of 1000 Americans, the average woman has 103 items in her closet but only likes 10% of them. A whopping 21% are deemed "unwearable," while over half no longer fit. It begs the question, why do we hold on to so many clothes and accessories if we never intend to wear them?

If you've resolved to declutter your closet, resale websites offer a quick and easy way to make extra cash—and ensure your pre-loved item goes to a new home, not into a landfill.
