Before you can understand my need for a Poshmark Listing Day there is something else you need to know…
Let me describe a typical morning in my life.
I wake up around 4am and immediate take out the dog, starting the coffee pot on the way out. Upon our return, I feed the dog, grab a cup of coffee and climb back in bed ready to scroll through my phone. I finally emerge from under the covers around 5am and jump on my laptop. Typically I blog or start sharing on Poshmark…
Then I refill my coffee cup and things start to spiral out of control.
“Oh, I need to start the dishwasher!”
*start loading it when I notice that I have way too many dirty dish towels and need to load them into the washer*
*begins to put dish towels in the washer*
“Dang it! It’s full”… opens dryer.
“Dang it! It’s full”… unloads clean clothes into basket.
*turns and almost trips over open dishwasher door*
“OH YEAH, I was working on the dishes.”
*puts clean laundry in bedroom and looks at computer*
*sits down to computer. Half an hour later I realize that I need more coffee*
Ugh! There is an open dishwasher… an open dryer door, and rags spilling out of an abandoned washing machine.
Does this sound familiar? I sure hope not.
Can you even imagine what I am like when I am tying to focus on listing on Poshmark?
I read “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo and it really resonated with me. Sometimes I can literally feel all the clutter and stuff lying around like I’m wearing it on my shoulders. I know that this makes me scatterbrained and unable to focus. Clearly I am overwhelmed.
I have always felt that if I could just get my surroundings under control that everything will certainly fall into place. This past week has just been too much. So I did what any girl does when she feels like life is out of control. I called my mother.
One thing that really stresses me out is the amount of items that I have that need to be listed on Poshmark.
My plan is to have my mom help.
Yes, I know i am extremely fortunate to have my mom so close by… but in this circumstance you could even call a best friend, a neighbor, or ANYONE who can keep you on track (maybe your significant other!). So she is taking a day off next week and we are having an official POSHMARK LISTING DAY!
Because let’s be honest- I need supervision. So I am packing up all my Poshmark stuff and heading to her house. I will take the pictures, she will take measurements and describe. Then we will combine the two and it’s listed!
Reasons this should work:
- I am out of my comfort zone- no tasks, cleaning, books to read to distract me
- She can keep me focused- like I said supervision
- I can only bring home the items if they are listed. Spoiler alert: she won’t let me keep ANYTHING at her house, so it may be a long day
We will be using the strategy I talked about in 5 Easy Steps to Listing on Poshmark
Here is my checklist for what I need to do leading up to Posh Day and what I will need to bring…
Preparing for Poshmark Listing Day:
- Pull out ALL items that need to be listed
- Sort by category
- Preset my category descriptions in iPad notes (will only plug in specifics)
- Clear out photos on phone so I will actually have room
- Get Consignment and Donate bins labeled for sorting out the items that we decide not to list
Things I will need:
- Lint Rollers
- Fabric Steamer
- Measuring tape
- Tissue Paper
- IPad with keyboard
Did I forget anything?
My Official Poshmark Listing Day is this upcoming Tuesday, March 7.
So wish me (us) luck! I hope this may motivate you to try something new if you are in a rut. I will update you all on how it goes… also you may want to stop by Instagram to see the progress and assess the situation for yourself 🙂
What have you tried to get caught up with your Poshmark Listings?
Also, how many listings have you been able to get posted in a single day? I need a goal!
