While I'm not writing about the newest, most fashionable earbuds and headphones, I spend a lot of time shopping for clothes online. Admittedly, I'm one of those people who claim I have nothing to wear whilst staring at a closet full of clothes.

Finding the Beni extension was the perfect compromise that made shopping sustainably for my favorite items even easier while performing some much-needed online resale therapy.

As a dedicated clothing shopper, however, I've never been one to discriminate against a good brand or good deal, even if the item was pre-owned. In fact, I do a lot of my shopping via online or physical thrift stores in an attempt to do some good for the environment, combating the fast-fashion industry, and protecting my wallet.

So, finding the Beni extension was the perfect compromise that made shopping sustainably for my favorite items even easier while performing some much-needed online retail therapy — or rather, resale therapy.

What is Beni?

Beni, is a free shopping extension available on your desktop for Chrome and Safari that works alongside your current shopping page to look for either exact or similar clothing items at over 40 second-hand online stores, including ThreadUp, The RealReal, Poshmark, Rent the Runway, and eBay for a more budget-friendly price.

Essentially, Beni streamlines second-hand shopping by matching the current desired (full priced) item with either the exact item or one similar via quality, second-hand thrifting apps.
