So I was online the other day (big shock, I know) and I came across some link to a site called thredUP. I don’t usually click those things but for some reason, this one caught my interest. I read a little about it, created an account, and then put in the size/gender of clothing I would like to purchase.
I put in Peter’s size, since he’s the only one I really buy clothes for (the rest get his hand-me-downs). There wasn’t a lot in his size, but one box caught my interest. It said it was full of coats and pull-over hoodies. My kids are fascinated with hoodies and will wear one every day of the week if I let them.
It was $5 for the box, plus $10 shipping and so I decided to try it. I purchased the box and received several really nice, heavy coats in great condition, plus this fleece hoodie:
So my “test case” was such a great experience, I decided to fill up a bunch of boxes with my clothes marked “give away” and list them on the site in order to get some credit for more purchases. But then a little banner popped up on my screen that asked if I wanted to try their CONCIERGE PROGRAM!!! Don’t ask me how I scored that deal, but it’s awesome! They sent me a pre-paid bag that I can just set outside and schedule for UPS to pick up, and then they will put the stuff into boxes and list them – I don’t have to lift a finger!
It’s like they KNEW ME and yet, we had never even met!!!
So I’ve put a little ad over on the side of my blog for you to click on, or you can just click here. Happy swapping!
