Now here’s a neat idea!
Have you heard of Thredup? It’s more convenient than garage-sales, more friendly than eBay, and it’s a great way to get your kids the gently used clothes that they need.
If you’re like me, you probably have boxes of clothes in storage that you’ve saved for the next child who might need them. Most “moms of many” do. The problem comes, of course, when the clothes don’t fit right or don’t match the season or gender of the child in question.
You end up with a pile of perfectly good clothes…and your little one still has nothing to wear!
I experienced this first hand last year. My older daughter was a spring baby, but my baby girl was born in November. I had plenty of baby girl clothes for summer, but almost nothing appropriate for winter weather. Normally, I shop garage sales for my kids’s clothes but in November? In Wisconsin? With a newborn?
Thredup helps to solve this kind of problem. It’s a clothing exchange program–you post boxes of clothes you have to pass on to another family, and you find the clothes that you need for your kids, for only $5 plus the cost of shipping.
When you join, you get your first box free. Plus right now, for a limited time, you can get 30% off additional boxes…plus the satisfaction of knowing that your helping to keep this blog on the web by supporting one if it’s affiliates.
