When I found out I was pregnant I would purchase clothing by the bulk, not individually. I was able to bargain and get a much better deal by taking them all! Plus, it was one less box the sellers had to move in and always LOVED the deal! When I heard of the service that thredUP offers, I knew I had to look into it.
If you are not familiar with thredUP, here’s how it works:
In order to maximize my savings, I went through all of the “older” clothing I had for Mini-Me. I thought I had clothing to last her until she was in a 4T, but, that’s not the case. Mini-Me is in need of 3T clothing! So I was grateful when thredUP came to be to do a review!
I searched “spring/summer, 3T” and came up with about 5 pages of options. Being that we don’t have pets and are non-smokers I felt that it was important to get a nice clean box! I ended up finding a box that contained several shorts, jumpers, a few shirts, and bathing suits. I was also able to look at a few pictures that were being offered and jumped on that box!
The box arrived within three days of placing the order. All of the clothing is in exceptional shape, with no rips, tears or stains! As I was pulling the clothing out, the giver is a “Coupon Queen” and operates CouponQueenConfessions.Blogspot.com. I thought it was pretty funny and had to call Dena and tell her!
For the price of $15, it’s well worth it! If I would’ve bought the same items at Once Upon A Child, I probably would’ve spent well over $30, if not more.
- Since thredUP is a swapping community, you can also de-clutter by sending boxes of stuff your kids no longer use to other moms for free – all without leaving the house. Going green has never been easier…
- On average, swapping kids gear can lighten your overall eco-footprint by 5% (based on an EPA report and thredUP user stats).
- Since thredUP’s launch (last Earth Day) they have helped over 100,000 parents ‘up-cycle’ 500,000+ kids items – that’s enough gear to pave 200 miles!
