Thred Up Clothing Exchange

*UPDATE-  MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21 ONLY*

Don’t miss the Eco-Monday Flash Sale where you can get 20% off all boxes of pre-owned clothes, toys and books.  Give great second-hand gifts or keep them for yourself.  Flash sale is only on Monday so hurry! 

 

After Christmas, are you always trying to find room for the gifts and moving the kids stuff around?  With the holidays quickly approaching, I started thinking about going through old clothes and making room for new ones.

This year, I found the perfect way to get rid of their outgrown clothes.   I’m joining thredUP where I can earn cash for gently used clothing, books and toys that they don’t need anymore.  It’s like an online consignment store with a bit of a twist.  I’ve heard of the site but never really got around to looking into how it actually works until now.

There are two ways you can do it.  First, thredUP will send you free empty boxes after you sign up.  You box up the goods and post online and when another mom picks it, you earn $10 per box.  Or, you can let thredUP do the work.  Order a free concierge bag when you join and stuff it with as much as you can.  They will sort and post the items for you then you earn a portion of the proceeds when it’s been sold.

If you’re also looking to shop, it’s easy to search for brands, gender and size.  There are detailed descriptions of each piece of clothing and the season for wearing them.  The sellers are even rated too.

Either way, it’s a win-win situation.  Earn a little money and be free from the boxes and boxes of clothes taking over your basement (at least in my case).  Happy purging!
