thredUP {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I’m a pretty frugal shopper and enjoy getting great deals, and I really love the thrift store that we have near our house.  They have a washer/dryer in the back so the clothes can be washed before put out on the floor, which means that it doesn’t have that “thrift store smell” to it.  They have high standards for the clothes they sell there, which makes a world of difference!  Once, I found two sleeper pajamas for my youngest, and the cashier gave them to me for free because they had some pilling on the feet — she was surprised they were even put out to sell.  !!  I know that there are a lot of places I’m going to miss when we leave North Carolina, but that thrift store is at the top of my list!  We have saved so much money and have lots of good quality items because of their high standards.

A good friend of mine told me about an online consignment shop that features great clothes for boys and girls, but I was a little hesitant to jump onboard.  While I’m frugal, I’m not cheap — I know that my two active boys will (hopefully!) be using the same piece of clothing at some point, so I like to find clothes that will withstand lots of play and washing.

After a few other friends mentioned thredUP, this same online consignment shop, I thought that I should check them out.  We’re heading overseas next year, but we won’t know where we’re going until just a couple of weeks before we move — I’m not sure that they’ll have great yard sale websites and thrift stores like we have here, and I’d really love to be able to find a way to save money and still get good quality clothes.

Well, I was not disappointed!!  I went through the boys’ clothes before going online, and, while I have almost an entire wardrobe for every season in sizes 2T to 5T (hallelujah!), I don’t have those nice white shirts for the boys to wear to church on Sunday.  White shirts are just asking little boys to play harder and eat messier, and not ONE has made it into the “hand-me-down” pile.  I decided to get some short-sleeved white polo shirts to add to my collection.

It was easy to search on thredUP by size, style, gender, color, sort by price, etc., and I was especially excited to see so many options with lots of brands and some even new with tags (NWT).  The shirts arrived on Tuesday, and I LOVE them!  I was amazed at the quality and that they were still white, and I really liked that they were good name brand clothes (two Gymboree, one Children’s Place, and one Arizona Jeans).  And the best part?  $20 for all four like-new white shirts delivered to my door.  It’s too easy!!

The reason for these good quality clothes comes from their high standards — each piece of clothing goes through a 12-point inspection: no tears or rips, no marks, no fraying, no odors, no holes, no pilling, no missing parts, no stains or spots, no fading, no peeling, no hair, no stretching.

In addition to the option to buy new or like-new clothes from thredUP, you also have the option to SELL your own new or like-new clothes to thredUP!  You start by ordering a free bag to be sent to your house, and you fill it with items that meet their standards.  Each bag can hold the equivalent of a standard laundry basket, which is perfect for spring cleaning and switching out clothes for the season change (right now!).  You send the filled bag to thredUP for free, and they pay you for every item they can resell.  That payment can come in the form of thredUP credit, PayPal, or donation to a charity.  Take a look at the video below:

I was incredibly impressed with thredUP, and I know that I’ll be using them again in the future.  In addition to clothes, they also have shoes, jackets, accessories, and Halloween costumes — again, in new or like-new condition at discounted prices.

And, my favorite part??  I just noticed that they are in the process of opening a new Women’s Shop to buy and sell clothes in women’s sizes!  You can join the waiting list for exclusive access to pre-launch activities and to be informed when the shop opens.
