Over the past few months, I’ve received a lot of low offers on the things I have for sale on Poshmark. I’m excited to get an email or push notification telling me that I have an offer. Then I open it an oooph, someone is asking for 50% or more off the price on my item.
Welcome to spring! It’s time for me to share with you some of my Poshmark and Mercari sales from this past winter. I spent this last quarter keeping up closet stocked. After completing the Closet to Cash challenge last spring, I’ve kept my closet full with over 100 listings available for sale at all times.

Since I started reselling things online several years ago, I’ve found lots of resellable clothes and accessories from Goodwill stores in my city.

When you’re a new blogger, you might be wondering how to make this whole blogging thing work to turn your brand-new blog into a successful and profitable one.

Have you been watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo? This new Netflix show is all the rage right now. Organization guru Marie Kondo uses her KonMari method to help people declutter their homes, bringing increased order and happiness into their lives. My husband and I watched a few episodes together when it first came out earlier this month.
In 2018, after months of frustration trying to use Pinterest to grow From Pennies to Plenty, I decided to learn how to use it strategically. I’m happy to say that my Pinterest numbers and blog traffic have been going up. There are several reasons for this. Besides being more strategic with my pinning, I’ve been making pins that appeal to viewers.
This week I’m taking a step back from writing about the usual topics of personal finance and reselling thrifted clothes to introduce a new topic to From Pennies to Plenty, specifically blogging. Over the past 1-2 years, I’ve been growing FP2P from a hobby blog into a profitable business. This is consistent with my ever-growing love of side hustles and entrepreneurship.
Pinterest. As a blogger, just hearing that word conjures up strong emotions. Some bloggers love Pinterest while others hate it. Most bloggers know that Pinterest can drive insane amounts of traffic to your site. What blogger wouldn't want that? But getting yourself established on Pinterest to the point that you're bringing in those big numbers, well, that can be maddening.
Hello again! Valentine’s Day is only about a month away. I’ve been thinking about what to get the man in my life. Is it just me or are guys hard to shop for? Maybe the men I know don’t need or ask for a lot, but every holiday, I’m left scratching my head over what to get them. I’ve done a lot of brainstorming to come up with some budget-friendly ideas for this holiday.
Hi friends! I’ve got Valentine’s Day on my mind. What to do? What to wear? What to give? When you think about your honey, you may want to give him or her the moon and stars. Those may be hard to reach, however, and more earthly things have to substitute. Here’s a guide to some of the best budget-friendly gifts to help you pick that perfect gift for your special someone.
With the new year here, you might be motivated to improve your financial situation. Last year I had some serious plans to do the same come January 1st. I was going to plan my meals, cut back on eating out, put more money into savings, and so forth. I’m happy to say that I made some improvements in a few areas, although it’s overall still a work in progress.
Now that we’re well into January, you might be tired of hearing about New Year’s resolutions. I like making resolutions for myself at the start of the year, but hearing about them and seeing articles about them everywhere can be overwhelming. It’s a lot of the same advice too: how to get to the gym more, eat healthier, save more money, pay off debt, and so forth.
Hi friends! It’s already the middle of January and Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away. Can I say how much I enjoy Valentine’s Day? I’m a sucker for everything romantic. Sappy movies and sweet love stories. I love them all. One of the most exciting things about planning for Valentine’s Day is deciding what to do with your special someone.
Welcome to the new year! I have lots to share with you this year. I’m excited to get started by showing you my recent sales Poshmark and eBay. You might know by now that I’m a thrift shopping and reseller addict. It’s a fun and profitable side hustle that I pursue in my free time. After a slowdown in sales over last summer, which is typical for the season, I was happy to see my sales pick up in the fall. I ended the year with a great fourth quarter in sales!
