Fast Tips for How to Sell More on Poshmark
TIP #1: PRICING to sell more on Poshmark
Quick Pricing Tip: Price with Poshmark discounting and filters in mind
Pricing on Poshmark can be a challenge. If you want to sell more, you need to get pricing right. Start by thinking about what you realistically think you can get for an item. Do this based on supply and demand, trends, recent comparable sales, etc. Once you have a number in mind, price your item so you can drop the price a at least once and still ultimately get to that number.
Dropping the price will help provide incentive for people to pull the trigger and buy. For example, if you think you can sell an item for $20, price it at $23. When you do a private or public price reduction of at least 10%, Poshmark will send the likers a notification. If you want to be able to do this multiple times, you will need to price it higher.
Often shoppers like to feel like they’re getting a special deal, so want an offer at a lower price. That being said, do not price too low or people will think that something is wrong with the item. A deal that’s “too good to be true” often rings true.
If you will not allow discounting, and do not want to entertain offers, mark your prices as firm. Shoppers on Poshmark often have an expectation for further discounting. The other thing to keep in mind when pricing is the filters available for shoppers. The filter ranges for pricing are $0-$25, $25 to $50, $50 to $100. For example, if you have an item priced at $55, it will only show up in one filter. It may make sense to reduce the item to $50 so your item shows up in both searches. More visibility means more shoppers, and potentially more sales!
TIP #2: SHARING on Poshmark to get more sales
High level quick sharing tip: Poshmark encourages sharing. Sharing your OWN closet is more important than sharing the items in other people’s closets to sell more on Poshmark
One of the most tedious parts of selling through Poshmark is the need to repeatedly share your items for sale. But one of the best parts about selling through Poshmark is the amazing search engine optimization (SEO). Post an item and then search for the title on Google and it nearly immediately shows up in search results! I recommend sharing your items at minimum twice a day, and ideally three times a day. I typically try to share in the morning, midday, and again in the 10 pm (eastern time) party. When you share the items in your closet, they come up higher in the filtered results when people are searching. For example, try searching for Nike shorts. The results will default to show the items most recently shared. So this “sharing tip” is to make sure you share the items in your closet, and to share them often.
Don’t have time to share so often, want to spend more time on listing or shopping? Check out our blog to learn how to spend less time sharing and still be successful on Poshmark.
Social media promotion is very encouraged! There are many Poshers on Instagram, many of whom offer great tips for selling on Poshmark. The more you share, the more people see your items, the more sales you will have.
TIP #3: DISCOUNTING to sell more on Poshmark
Discounting Quick Tip: Poshmark requires a 10 percent discount to promote
As mentioned above, pricing can be a challenge. Poshmark looks at pricing history, so start higher to allow room in your pricing to promote discounts. Many people just need that extra push with a discount offer to buy. I recommend offering a discount to likers soon after they like your items to help encourage impulse buys. If you do not want to offer discounts, mark your prices as firm as buyers who use Poshmark frequently expect discounts.
Another area you can provide incentives to shoppers is through discounts on bundles, and reduced shipping rates. In other words, you can encourage buyers to get two or more items at once by offering a discount. There is a setting to allow Poshmark to do this discounting automatically for you. Encouraging bundles saves the buyer money through the discounted rate and reduced shipping cost. The buyer will only be charged for shipping once if they buy the items together.
You can also add a shipping discount for the buyer, but you do not have to when working within a bundle. Outside of a bundle, if you want to offer the private discount, you must drop the price by at least 10% and offer a shipping discount. Watch the net revenue level to make sure you’re still making money – or at minimum, breaking even in the beginning!
TIP # 4: NEGOTIATING on Poshmark WILL help you sell more on Poshmark
Negotiating Quick Tip: Poshmark is a resale platform, where shoppers are coming for deals, so expect to negotiate
Let me say it again. Negotiating with buyers on Poshmark will help you sell more on Poshmark.
One of the biggest traps I’ve seen people fall into when it comes to Poshmark is taking sales tactics personally. As with anything in business, always stay professional and do not take things personally. If someone offers you a “low-ball” offer, simply counter offer with a price you are comfortable with. I often will come down a small amount, and then the person will continue to come back until we meet in the middle. I never ignore or decline offers, but will counter offer with a minimal discount if I feel the item is already priced low enough.
Do not engage in negative language or discussions that are not helpful to your business. If negotiating is not something you want to do, indicate that your prices are firm. You are your brand on Poshmark. Do not engage in negative conversations on Poshmark or social media platforms that you use to promote your business, as they poorly reflect on you, and your closet, even when you may be in the right.
Some users “block” potential buyers because they are insulted by a “low-ball” offer. Remember these are potential buyers, and many cultures encourage negotiation, and some see it as an art. If you don’t want to engage, or simply block potential buyers, you’re leaving money on the table. I’ve had some of my biggest bundle sales from people who started off with offers that were definitely too low to start! This is one of the most important top tips on how to sell more on Poshmark, so please make sure you are open to negotiating.
TIP #5: SHIPPING on Poshmark
Shipping Quick Tip: Poshmark buyers typically pay for shipping; sellers pay difference when over 5 lbs so sell more, but don’t get stuck with extra fees
On Poshmark, the buyer pays for shipping unless the seller specifically offers it at a reduced rate through a private offer or bundled deal. The seller can offer a partial shipping discount or free shipping. Free shipping is not common or typically expected on Poshmark. Discounted shipping is expected by frequent Poshmark shoppers.
NOTE, if a buyers bundled items add up to above 5 pounds, the additional shipping cost will be taken out of your sales revenue (when requesting a modified shipping label). Letting buyers know when items cannot be bundled together due to shipping weight limits will help avoid overage fees. To avoid shipping discounts, create a bundle of your customer, and give them a discounted rate from the bundle, where shipping discounts are not required.

TIP #6: LISTING on Poshmark
Quick Tips for Listing to get more sales: Poshmark wants you to list more items
I haven’t found any official notes from Poshmark about listing more items each day, but there are many of us who swear it helps sales! So not only is it important to have items in your closet, and to share those items, but it’s also important to add more items to your closet, and ideally on a daily basis. You can also relist items (using the copy functionality) to get items featured up near the top of the “Just in” search results lists.
I’ve had the best luck listing new items daily whenever possible, and listing items with brands that are well known. The more you list, the more you will sell. It’s definitely a numbers game!
Higher quality brands, and items with unique and fun styles tend to sell well. Some brands have sold surprisingly slowly or not at all for me. Brands that do NOT do well for me in the reseller space include: Chico’s, Life is Good, Banana Republic, Gap. Brands that seem to do consistently well include: Dr. Martens, Rothy’s, Tieks, Vans for shoes, and for clothing, Lily Pulitzer, Nike, Lululemon, Torrid, and Free People. Jeans vary, with American Eagle Outfitters often flying out of my closet as fast as I list them (maybe I need to raise my prices!). 🙂
Quick tips for selling listings on Poshmark – what will help my listing sell faster.
Tip #7: FEES on Poshmark
Fees Quick Tip: Poshmark charges per sale, not listing
Poshmark takes 20% for each sale, but a minimum of $2.95. It’s one of the more expensive platforms, but there’s a reason many still use it. Poshmark makes it incredibly easy for buyers and sellers. They also have excellent search engine optimization (SEO), which essentially means your items come up in Google search results well.
Note these tips are offered in good faith based on information available at time of posting. Always follow guidelines posted on the Poshmark website.
What are your favorite things to sell? Where do you source your items? My favorite items to sell are J. McLaughlin dresses. I absolutely love them! Connect with me on Instagram – I’m happy to follow you back to learn great tips for how to sell more on Poshmark from you, too!
A colleague who I commiserate with over hair challenges shared this great new tool with me. She uses it on her own hair, and her daughter’s (down-to-her-waist!) hair with great results. Knowing she’s as particular as me, and impatient for effective solutions, if she said it’s the best hair dryer out there, I had to at least check it out.
I jumped onto Amazon and searched for the new Revlon One Step Hair Dryer and Brush she recommended. I was pleasantly surprised to find the cost to be quite reasonable at under $50. The 190,000 ratings with a nearly 5-star average, gave me additional confidence to give it a go! (And who knew I was so late to the party with so many ratings already?!)
Trial Results – Best New Hair Dryer?
I was excited to try it out! My daughter’s hair is down to the middle of her back, and she likes to straighten it a few times a week. Sometimes she’ll even let me help. This typically involves the hair dryer, a flat or round brush, and then a flat iron after it’s dry to smooth it out. In other words, it’s work and takes quite a bit of time! Even with what we thought was the best hair dryer from previous trials!
The Revlon One Step arrived fast (it was from Amazon). We quickly learned why so many people rated it favorably. It’s quick and easy – just plug and play – and very easy to maneuver. It allowed me to quickly and easily grab hair, dry it, and smooth it all at once. It was easier to hold (not as heavy as my hair dryer). Plus, it left me with a free hand to gather the hair section I wanted to work on next.
I would definitely call the Revlon One Step the new Best Hair Dryer for many reasons – it’s faster and easier, and it’s lightweight and convenient.
It’s hard to tell with this photo, but I have a ton of wavy fine hair that loves to curl and tangle!
The only con with this new tool is that it does get hot to the touch as you’re using it. Use caution to not touch the black area during use . I actually went back and bought another one – it’s that great of a hair dryer!
Looking for more great beauty tips? Check out my blog on J. McLaughlin dresses – the best out there!
If you don’t love J. McLaughlin dresses, you likely haven’t been introduced to them yet. They are my hands down absolute favorite dresses. J. McLaughlin dresses are amazingly soft, comfortable and extremely flattering. Second, need I say more than their Catalina Cloth? Soft, comfortable, stretchy, and just thick enough to smooth out all areas, it’s by far my favorite fabric blend of nylon and spandex. And third, their Bainbridge cloth is equally flattering and comfortable, and just a bit thicker for a more all-season option.
Most importantly, J. McLaughlin has the best dresses for women because they are made to last. They are timeless, high quality, comfortable and very stylish. Most of them are hand washable but I typically throw them in the wash and dryer on low – they do show wash wear over time but it’s sooo much easier! The dresses can be dressed up or down, and easily paired with flip flops, heels or even boots! I love to add one of the J. McLaughlin cardigans or jackets for an additional layer.
J. McLaughlin Dresses come in a variety of styles, with pockets and without, collared necks and v necks, faux wraps and more. Finally, they are perfect as a work dress, going casual or more dressy for a night out, as wedding guest dress, or a dress for a casual day at the beach. To sum it up, J. McLaughlin dresses are the ones I get the most compliments on, hands down! Nearly every time I wear one, someone asks me what brand it is – they are that flattering!
A few of my favorite J. McLaughlin Dresses:
Emma Dress. A truly timeless dress, the Emma features two front pockets and an easy pullover style. It comes with the choice of sleeveless, cap sleeves or 3/4 sleeves, a soft square neck, banded waist details, and is typically about 36″ in length. The link is to an Emma dress I have for sale in my virtual closet on Poshmark. 20% of all proceeds go to local charities. Other styles, colors and sizes are available. If the dress is sold out by the time you click the link, you can view other items in my J. McLaughlin sale.
Sage Dress. Classic and contemporary, the J. McLaughlin Sage dress comes in 3/4 sleeves or sleeveless. It is ruched on the right side to offer a bit of fun sass to a streamlined easy dress. Approximate length is 39″, and it has a boat neck. The link is to a Sage dress I have for sale in my virtual closet on Poshmark. 20% of all proceeds go to local charities. Other styles, colors and sizes are available. If the dress is sold out by the time you click the link, certainly you can view other items in my J. McLaughlin sale.
The J. McLaughlin Lola Dress was my first J. McLaughlin dress ever(!), and began my obsession. Most importantly, after it’s amazingly soft and flattering fabric, is the fact that it features a figure-flattering wide waistband with ruched details, and is about 38″ in length. It comes with the choice of 3/4 sleeves or sleeveless. The Lola Dress is currently sold out in my closet.
Even more J. McLaughlin dresses:
The J. McLaughlin Bedford Dress is gorgeous, but unfortunately it doesn’t work so great for this long-waisted girl (hey, J. McLaughlin, if you’re reading this PLEASE make a tall or long torso version!). They are very popular as they are made in both the Bainbridge all-season fabric as well as the lighter, stretchier Catalina cloth fabric. They feature a quarter zip front and typically are long sleeve. They also make a shirt in this style.

Read About How to Discount Multiple Items on Poshmark with a few short clicks – desktop and mobile friendly solutions.
Wondering how others are providing a discount on multiple items on Poshmark? Read these quick tips on how to set up the discount on multiple items below – on desktop or mobile.
Discount Multiple Items Poshmark – Desktop & Mobile Bundling How To Guide
In order to set up discounts for multiple items, simply open Poshmark on your desktop browser. I use Google Chrome, so the screenshots may appear slightly different for you if you use a different browser.
Easy Steps to Discount Multiple Items – Bundle Feature on the Desktop
One way to send a discount to customers on multiple items is to create a “bundle” for customers. A bundle is like a shopping cart. In other words, customers can buy multiple items at once and only pay for shipping once. Follow the steps below to create a bundle for your customers:
- From your desktop browser, login to Poshmark. Find the user you’d like to create a bundle for. Ideally the buyer has liked one or more items from your closet in this scenario.
- After you’ve found the user you’d like to create a user for, click on the little bag icon on the right of their profile page next to the About & Follow Buttons. (You need to be logged in to Poshmark to see the icon.)
3. Once you have clicked on the bag, you will open up a bundle. The bundle you see now is one that you can use for your own purchases from their closet. What you want is to create a bundle for them to buy from you! In order to do this, click on the down arrow on the right of their name, and choose “Switch to Sell View.” Screen shot below.
4. Now you can see the items the (potential) buyer has liked in your closet!
5. Add them to the bundle by clicking the plus sign under each item. In the screenshot below you can see that the middle shopping bag icon has a plus sign if it’s not yet in the bundle, and a check mark within the bag if it is in the bundle.
6. Once you’ve added the items to the bundle, you can click the offer button and send a discounted rate to buy all of the items in the bundle. You can also add a comment below the items thanking the buyer for shopping in your closet.
Easy Steps to Discount Multiple Items – Bundle Feature on Mobile (iPhone iOS)
Sending a discount to customers on multiple items using the “bundle” feature on mobile is just as easy from your mobile device. A bundle is like a shopping cart, where you can put items together to be shipped all at once. You can add an automatic discount for bundles, and/or provide a discount on multiple items manually by following the steps below on mobile. (Note I only have an iPhone so this applies to the iPhone application, although I imagine it’s likely similar on Android devices.)
- Open the Poshmark app on your iPhone. Make sure you are logged in.
- Find the user you’d like to create a bundle for to send a multiple item discount.
- On the top right of the screen, click the little shopping bag icon just to the left of the three dots.
- Now you are in a bundle, or shopping cart for yourself for this buyer. You want to create a bundle for them to buy from you! In order to do this, click the three dots on the top right of the screen and choose “Switch to Sell View.” (screen shot above is similar).
- You can now see which items the potential buyer has liked and add them to their bundle or shopping cart by clicking the plus sign under each item (screen shot above is similar).
- Add items to the bundle, and when are ready, click the “offer” button on the lower right of the screen to send the buyer a discount on the items in their bundle. You can also post a comment here to thank them for shopping, or offer to answer any questions.
I’ve been reselling for a few years now, and there are a few items that have become must have reseller mailing supplies. Below you will find a list of the top mailing supplies I use for my reselling business.
Best Reseller Mailing Supplies – My Must Haves
I’ve broken down the reseller mailing supplies to include packing supplies, mailing supplies and shipping supplies – but they all make up reseller mailing supplies must haves!
- A Postal Scale – if you are using any selling platform other than Poshmark, this is a must-have. And if you’re selling an item or bundles that may weigh over five pounds (the maximum weight for a standard Poshmark shipping label), this Postal Scale is a quick, easy machine to weigh packages easily. It’s probably the best $20 I’ve spent on reselling business supplies!
The right packing supplies are a simple, easy way to make your life (or hobby) easier as a reseller.
- Padding Shipping Envelopes – if you are shipping anything on your own, these are great, easy self-sealing padded envelopes. Customers like the extra touch of a padded envelope, and I primarily sell only clothing. These white mailers are 9.5″ x 14.5″ so they fit most smaller items and one or two clothing items. There are 100 bags for only about $35 so it’s a great deal. You may be able to get away with smaller envelopes to save on cost – both supplies and shipping – but I have limited space, so I opt for the larger envelopes and simply fold them to make them smaller to save on shipping if possible. The Amazon store that I get these from has a lot of poly mailers and bubble mailers if you prefer something more colorful or different.
- Clean Newsprint Packing Paper – this is probably my favorite find. I tried tissue paper, and lots of options before finding this great quality newsprint packing paper (that’s easily recyclable!), clean, and easy to use. It packs items neatly and easily and is a great way to wrap items prior to shipping. I wrap all items – even clothing – to help improve the customer experience. I have a lot of repeat sellers , so making sure the customer experience is great is very important. It comes in a neat and tidy box, and includes up to 500 sheets. The 500 sheets of 24″ x 30″ paper is by far the best buy at only $38. I also typically have this packing paper on hand as well as it’s also clean blank newsprint and a steal at $45 for 640 sheets of slightly smaller 27″ x 17″ paper.
- Quality Packing Tape – do yourself a favor and don’t cheap out on tape. I’ve tried many varieties, cheap and otherwise, and the Scotch brand shipping tape is well worth the price. It’s less of a hassle, actually tapes things closed, and is clear and easy to apply. For four rolls of 54.6 yards of tape for $21, it’s well worth it.
- Crush-Proof Box – I sell sunglasses on occasion, and found these small crush-proof boxes to be well worth the money. The folding of the boxes always took me a minute to remember how to do each time I sold a pair, but the flat packing and storage of them made the pause well worth the effort. They are small, and easily fit glasses or a similarly-sized item. Customers were always impressed with them upon receipt. I typically put these right into the padded envelopes noted above and off they went. No problems with over 100 pairs sold!
- Extra Large Shipping Bags – anyone who has used PirateShip or worked with the USPS for shipping items knows that it’s cheaper to throw that box into a bag to ship. Why? Not sure, but it always seems to price out that way, so I keep some of these over sized shipping bags on hand to put larger items, large bundle sales, or boxes into so I can save on shipping. At under $20 for 50 bags, it’s definitely worth the savings on shipping costs.
- Shipping label printer – this one took me awhile to bite the bullet on. The price tag is relatively high compared to other items to support a reselling business, but the time saved (& tape saved) is tremendous. I now have two! I have one that’s wifi enabled so I can print from my phone right in my reseller room. AND one that’s connected to my computer so I can print from my desk. I thought I’d sell the connected one after getting the wifi one, but I love both so am keeping them both for now. I highly recommend the Rollo shipping label printer. The cost seems high at first but you can use paper that’s cheaper and there’s NO INK cost so over the long run you pay less. I typically print the labels from my desk one at a time and write what each item is on the back of the label to help keep me organized. Highly recommend once you’re selling at least 5-10 items a week. I got mine for my birthday I wanted it so much! The paper refill is only $20 for 500 labels.
Shipping label printer – this one took me awhile to bite the bullet on. The price tag is relatively high compared to other items to support a reselling business, but the time saved (& tape saved) is tremendous.
A Postal Scale – if you are using any selling platform other than Poshmark, this is a must-have.
Additional Reselling Tips
- How to sell more on Poshmark
- Spend less time sharing on Poshmark – and still be successful
- Use Google Lens to find images using their reverse lookup search.
- Review your numbers from past sales – what platforms do you sell the most on (Poshmark, Mercari, Ebay, Depop, etc)? What brands do you sell the most often? Which brands do you make the most money on? What categories sell best for you?
- Crosspost from one platform (like Poshmark) to others (like Ebay, Mercari, Etsy and more) using a quick and easy online sharing software program like Vendoo. Time is money, so spend your time and money wisely. I typically sign up, cross post a bunch, and then let it lapse for a bit until I have time/energy to post more. That way I’m not paying all the time unless I’m actively posting. Others use it for inventory management and analytics but I use Google sheets so don’t need that additional functionality (yet!).
- If you plan to ship items, do NOT bring it to one of the local mailing places or directly to the USPS for pricing – use PirateShip or another online service to get the commercial shipping rate (usually about 20-25% cheaper) without any fees!! Simply weigh the item in the package for mailing and measure it and go to Pirateship.com for further instructions. You can then drop items off at the USPS (or put in your mailbox if they fit) or UPS, etc. Super easy and a BIG game changer.

I love smoothies and after a local Juicery started making amazing smoothie bowls, I’ve been trying to make them at home. We had the NutriBullet for years, and have slowly replaced parts here and there. Recently the motor started smelling, so unquestionably, I knew it was time to look into a new option. I did the typical Amazon search for reviews and best blender options and found a number of results to try. My requirements were for a blender to fit easily under my low cabinets and quickly and easily make smoothies and bowls. After a fairly extensive search, I decided to try the Ninja brand. Numerous reviews said it was the best blender for smoothies and bowls.
This blender is a huge step above the NutriBullet. The motor is stronger, it cleans just as easily as the NutriBullet. The super easy functions make it fast and easy to start using. Model SS151 comes with a 34-ounce pitcher, which is great when I’m making smoothies for more than just myself. Additionally, it comes with smaller single serve cups, lids and a small recipe book. The instructions were very simple and clear, and after a quick wash, we were able to start using the blender. It’s definitely the best blender for smoothies and bowls I’ve ever used.
I am impressed with the power, speed, versatility and easy-to-clean benefits. I had heard from others that Ninja is the best blender, but now I’m a true believer! Even my teen son is on board and making smoothies or bowls everyday.
It crushes ice easily and I’m excited to try it to make spreads and more!
The only thing I’d recommend is to make sure you have ingredients on hand when you receive it! I had to go out and buy more frozen bananas and other fruit! We were eager to make more smoothies and bowls after trying out how easy this great blender.
In an era driven by technology, traditional paper books have found a digital companion in the form of the Kindle. Developed by Amazon, the Kindle has revolutionized the way we read, offering numerous advantages over physical books. I am an avid reader – and have found that using a Kindle is better than paper books. Below I highlight how it enhances the reading experience, convenience, and accessibility for avid book lovers.
Read More to Find Out Why I think the Kindle is Better than Paper Books for Portability & Convenience, Sustainability & More!
Portability and Convenience:
One of the standout benefits of a Kindle is its exceptional portability and convenience. With the ability to store thousands of books in a single device, the Kindle eliminates the need to carry bulky books during traveling. Whether you’re on the go or at home, the Kindle allows you to access your entire library at your fingertips. Its lightweight design ensures a comfortable reading experience, making it ideal for readers on the go. An added bonus for those who like to read in bed, you can turn on the soft backlighting on the Paperwhite edition and not disturb anyone else.
Compact and Space-saving:
Physical books require considerable shelf space, which can be a constraint for avid readers with limited room (or a limited interest in hoarding) in their homes. Kindles, on the other hand, are compact and take up minimal space. You can store an entire library of books in a device smaller than an average paperback. The Kindle allows you to save valuable space and build an extensive collection without worrying about storage constraints.
Adjustable Text Size and Font Styles:
One of the Kindle’s most convenient features is the ability to customize the reading experience according to personal preferences. With adjustable text size, readers can easily increase or decrease the font size to enhance readability, catering to different visual needs. Additionally, a wide range of font styles is available, allowing readers to choose a style that best suits their preferences. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found this to be extremely helpful.
Built-in Dictionary and Language Support:
The Kindle offers a built-in dictionary, enabling readers to instantly look up the meaning of unfamiliar words with a simple tap. This feature enhances the learning experience and helps expand vocabulary effortlessly. Moreover, Kindles support multiple languages, making them an excellent tool for language learners and bilingual readers. The dictionary is another feature that I use way more often than I’d like to admit.
Easy Access to E-books:
The Kindle provides instant access to a vast library of e-books, allowing readers to browse and download books within seconds. Many classic and contemporary titles are available at lower prices compared to physical copies. This affordability, and convenience, makes the Kindle a cost-effective option for avid readers. Many libraries now allow you to download books right onto your kindle as well.
Adjustable Lighting and Eye-friendly Reading:
Kindles come equipped with adjustable front lighting, enabling readers to customize the brightness according to their surroundings. This feature eliminates the need for external light sources and ensures a comfortable reading experience in various lighting conditions. Additionally, e-ink technology used in Kindles mimics the appearance of ink on paper, reducing eye strain and making it easier to read for extended periods. I use screens a lot at work, and am on my phone often, so using the Paperwhite edition is a way to take a break from a traditional screen. The soft backlight can be used to read in the dark or when out in direct sunlight.
Annotating and Note-taking:
Kindles allow readers to highlight and annotate text, making it easy to revisit important passages or collect key points while reading. The ability to make notes directly on the device ensures a clutter-free reading experience and promotes active engagement with the content. Kindle users can effortlessly organize their highlights and notes, simplifying the process of reviewing and studying material.
The Kindle offers a way to have all of your books at your fingertips without requiring more trees to be cut down and more space to be used for storing books. The Kindle Paperwhite uses very little power and grants you the ability to read from thousands of books. No extra room in the house needed to store the collection, yet another reason having a Kindle is better than paper books.
Go For It: Test it for yourself to find out if the Kindle is Better Than Paper Books
As technology advances, embracing the Kindle as a reading device opens up a world of benefits that enhance the overall reading experience. With its portability, convenience, adjustable features, and easy access to a vast digital library, the Kindle offers an enticing alternative to physical books. While the charm of physical copies will always hold a special place, the Kindle’s versatility and advantages make it an invaluable tool.
Amazon almost always has deals on Kindles – shop around, and I encourage you to check out the Kindle Paperwhite edition. I am now on my third Kindle (like phones, you do have to update them every few years). I bought my current one in December of 2019 and it’s still working great! They also have a cute kids version. Shop all Kindle options here.
I do have a relationship with Amazon and I may receive a small commission. All reviews and notes are based on my own personal experiences with products.

They come in a lot of different sizes and shapes, I bought one with the three size options – one for my socks, underwear and bras (yes they all fit in the smallest size!), one for bathing suits, cover ups, workout clothes if you’re so inclined, and/or sleepwear, and the largest for pants, shirts, etc. I was able to use these three and pack for a 7 night vacation overseas with still room for my shoes in the suitcase!! And room for souvenirs!! Oh, and I had to get one of these beauty suitcase organizer because it folds flat, holds everything that my giant square one holds, and fits much better into my suitcase – another best suitcase organizer! I could not believe how much more the beauty organizer held versus my old one – I have contacts and glasses, and of course want to bring my razor, toothbrushes for me and two kids, toothpaste, mouthwash, floss, plus makeup remove and makeup – and it all fit!
I am thinking about getting the whole suitcase from this company I love the organizers so much, but I haven’t quite jumped yet – the price is a little steep, but if I love it as much as I love the suitcase organizer, I know I’ll love it. One of these days I’ll jump! I hope you love the organizers as much as I do! I love these best suitcase organizers ever!!

I’m always on the lookout for the best deodorant for women. I feel like my body chemistry has changed so many times over the years, and I continually have to change my deodorant to keep up with my changing body. So my best deodorant has changed over the years.
What a “Best Deodorant for Women” means to me: Invisible solids are greatly preferred, although I’ve used some sprays before; unscented is also preferred, although I’m always tempted by cute names like Very Berry Summerberry and Peach Burst; and long-lasting – as in 12 hours or more preferred.
I tried the scented deodorants noted above, and they smelled great in the store, but when I got home and applied them, I couldn‘t not smell the deodorant. I don’t like to be able to smell deodorant on myself, so as much as I loved them, they were out for me as the best deodorant for women – at least for me!
Next I tried the Secret Outlast Completely Clean as I really like the Secret Outlast, as it really does seem to outlast other deodorants on the market. I used to use Degree often, which is why I tried the Peach Burst Degree, but it just didn’t seem to work as well as it used to – I’m thinking the changes in my body or something?! Maybe I’ll have to try the Shower Clean again as I believe that was my favorite.
Anyways, then I moved on to the unscented deodorants to give my sense of smell a break. I wanted to smell fresh and clean and not like a deodorant stick. I went with Sure first – anyone else remember those Sure! Sure! Unsure! commercials? I think I remembered them as being sure you smelled good and not sure you’re dry! I did stay dry, but I wasn’t 100% confident in the odor department!
We all know that sharing is critical to successful sales on Poshmark. But with four parties a day, 5 million other sellers to compete against, and millions of items out there, how do you spend less time sharing and still be successful on Poshmark?
The easy answer is cloning yourself, but that’s not so easy. The next best thing is getting a reseller assistant, who will share your items throughout the day and overnight. This helps ensure your items are coming up high in the “just in” search results. Potential buyers shop all day and night, so a virtual assistant who shares multiple times a day really pays off. You still need great inventory to be successful, but more about that later.
Free up your time by Using a BOT
First, it’s important to know that Poshmark has an official policy against the usage of Bots* so you use them at your own risk. I was hesitant at first, but as I began to use Poshmark more and more, it wasn’t realistic for me to share my closet and list and source new items. Sourcing has always been the most fun, and listing a requirement, so anything after that was just annoying (unless I was doing the shopping of course!). So after using Reseller Assistant (see below), I heard that the software behind the scenes was Posher VA. It’s easily added as a Chrome extension to your desktop browser, and you can schedule sharing and more. I started with simple shares in the morning and evening, but since i started using it, they’ve rolled out more and more functionality! They’ll follow, share and more for you in an automated fashion with still a lot of control in your hands! Just this week they rolled out the ability to list & delist items, allowing me even more free time to list new items! (BEST FEATURE YET!!) The price is excellent, the lift to get start is very easy, and they offer a referral discount of 20% off their 1-month, 3-month or 6-month plans. My referral link: https://posherva.com/?via=shananh and the promo code is my Poshmark closet name, ShanaNH.
I switched to Posher VA a few months ago, and I am definitely keeping with them as long as Poshmark will allow me to – it’s great! NOTE you do have to keep your computer on (can’t be asleep or off), and connected to the internet for it to work.
Bots are a way to use automation for engaging with content. Over the past six months or so, Poshmark has seemingly embraced the fact that most of their larger resellers use bots, and have slowed their efforts to stop the bots. There are still Captchas to reduce automation efforts, but most bots can handle Captcha’s, and Poshmark even highlight sellers who readily admit to using bots to engage with the sites. Some resellers who refused to use them reached out to Poshmark to comment on their policy to no avail.
Free up your time by Using a Virtual Assistant with Reseller Assistant
I started with the Reseller Assistant website with their $25 a week deal, and was pleasantly surprised by the results. As I continued to grow my closet, I wanted to keep my costs down. I started conservatively, and simply did the special about once a month. The Reseller Assistant program will NOT automatically renew you, or notify you when the week is over. You will notice the difference! I signed up with a promise that each day I paid for the service, I would list at least 2-3 items. It worked!
The combination of listing more, having a closet with more inventory, and having someone else focus on sharing for me, I was able to watch the metrics better, and see sales start to grow more consistently. By listing 2-3 items a day, I began to have daily sales. More people would visit my closet for one item, and then shop around for other items too. Free time allowed me to better view the diversity of my inventory, and see what sold well and what didn’t. And by selling higher value items, even with a higher cost of goods, I was able to limit my total inventory (necessary with my limited space), and still have the sales that I wanted.
I started one week at a time
Finally, I bit the bullet, and bought the Reseller Assistant’s lowest monthly plan, and did it for the quarterly purchase to save 10 percent. I now feel so much freer to go shopping (my favorite!!), take photos and measurements, and list. So by spending less time sharing, I was able to still be successful on Poshmark. In fact, it’s brought my sales to the next level.
One of the biggest recommendations you’ll hear when you start a business is that you need to be able to clone yourself because you can’t do it all. Find out what someone else can do for you so you can focus on what you want to do, or you do best. In my case, I really enjoy thrifting, and washing everything is easy, so the tougher work for me now is the photography and listing, but with so much freedom by no longer having to share, share, share, I have no excuses!
To learn more about Reseller Assistant, and their plans, click here. I recommend the one-week special for $25 to try it out if you’re ready to start now. Sign up for their mailing list to hear about their 10% off sales.
I’ve found that the investment has been well worth it, as my sales have been consistently higher, and I’m happier feeling less tied to sharing, sharing and more sharing in order to be successful.
Spend less time sharing on Poshmark and still be successful – how to guide in a nutshell
- Clone yourself – think about what someone else can do for you, so you’re freed up to do other things
- Easiest thing to delegate is sharing
- Choose a reliable, vetted person or company to assist you
- Commit to how you’re going to use that free time to continue to grow your company
- Add metrics to your to-do list: understand what is selling and what is not, and try to figure out why. Buy more only of what sells!
Reseller Assistant does offer an affiliate program, of which I have become a member. I joined only because it truly works for me, and I believe in sharing what works with others so we can all be successful. I do receive a small commission if you sign up using my links. The commission helps my small business reduce expenses. I hope you found this blog helpful, and that Reseller Assistant can help your business grow, too!
