If it meets our "excellence quality" standards, then group it together with one or two more like items. Pin them together on a hanger, or group them in a Ziploc bag and put one price for the entire group.

Should I iron my clothes?

Ironing is not always necessary. Often placing clothing in a dryer with a wet cloth to release wrinkles is sufficient. It is worth noting that those that go the extra mile by ironing often have outstanding sell-through percentages. Moms love to find items that look like they are in pristine condition. Please do what is necessary to make your clothes look clean and nice. Remember, the better they look, the more likely they are to sell.
